Re: Teenage Motorcycle racers
My old man taught me how to surf when I was 5, but motorbikes weren't in my life until I turned 30. It's awesome that these young kids have parents that can afford (time and money) to get their kid on a bike and to the track.
I gave my old 04 R6 to a friend's 17 year old son to convert to a track bike. You should have seen his face light up. It was awesome and i knew he could never afford it on own as he's a student right now and his parents dont have much disposable income kicking around. I had just returned from another tour "overseas" so i had a bit of extra cash, it just made sense to me. The kid will not likely be the next Valentino, but I hope he pays it forward in the end. I guess my Dad taught me more than just to surf.........karma, it s cool concept!
