How long have you been riding?

I’ve been riding for pretty much 5 years

 

What do you currently ride?

For the street I primarily ride the 0SXs. It’s a Supermoto and it’s all electric I love it. Sometimes I jump on my MV Agusta Brutale 675. That’s an Italian simple cylinder, super exotic, super fun bike. I ride that on road trips and I take it to the track. It’s also my street bike. My other bike is a little Honda Brava. It’s a super cute and fun 125cc bike that I use for racing and playing around the city, or to get my friends on an easy bike.

What is your dream motorcycle?

Well, it’s tough to just pick one and my mood changes like the seasons with what kind of bike I’m into. So if I had to pick something right now it would be the Sutter MMX 500. The Sutter MMX 500 is a 195 horsepower 280lb 2 stroke monster of a bike. Essentially it reincarnates the era of the MotoGP 500, the 2 strokes raced back in the 90’s. I actually got to see this bike last weekend at Laguna Seca for the world superbike races and they had just one sitting there for everyone to drool over. And of course just looking at it, full carbon fiber frame and body parts, it’s a one off and you’d be the luckiest person ever to reserve one. It’s a really special bike.


 

Anything else you want to add?

As someone who has been riding for 5 years, I started off taking the safety course with AMO and I loved it so much. The coaches positive reinforcement helped me learn and I wanted to take more training. It wasn’t easy but I proved to myself that I could do it and I support anyone who wants to take more training. It’s the best place you can put your money to get into more motorcycling.
