Background

I got into riding ever since I was 11 and my uncle showed up on Honda Nighthawk. I knew I was destined to ride. When I got my first bike, a Triumph 2006 Daytona 675, I though I would just be commuting on it and hitting up the canyons. Then I realized how dangerous the canyons can be. I was convinced to do a track day. I ended up crashing in the first session and my bike couldn't run afterwards, but for those few laps I was on track was the best adrenaline rush. I was hooked. From there it became a necessity to attend as many track days as I can. After 3 years of being on the track, I hit a plateau with my lap times and was comfortable riding in the advanced group. It was then many people suggested I take up racing. My first race was a bigger rush than any track days I have ever done.

From 2006 to 2007 I was commuting and just doing weekend rides to the twisty back country. Then starting mid 2007 I started doing trackdays as well. By 2008 I got a retro cruiser to handle weekend rides and commuting and dedicated my Daytona 675 as a track only bike. Also by 2008 I was already riding in the advanced group at track day events. Starting in 2011 I took up club racing with Chuckwalla Valley Motorcycle Association racing my Daytona 675 in the amateur middleweight class. After my big crash on 04/21/12, decided to downgrade to a Ninja 250 to offset overall racing costs
