  • Ride: Buell Blast, Buell XB9 Firebolt
  • Style/Inspiration:

    I started riding naturally, at about 5 years old, as my mom, sister and family all ride. I took the motorcycle safety course with my mom as instructor. My sister, Erika, raced on the salt the year before me, so she was able to tell me what it was like and give me some suggestions. I get real small on the Buell Blast and learned from a long time racer named “Santa Claus” that if I sit on the tail section of my bike and push my back up I could go faster. We learn from a lot of people around us. I’m aggressive, competitive and I love to go fast. This year I was signed up to ride a 200 mph V-Rod, but it had motor trouble before I got my chance. It was fun practicing on it though! I have a goal of being in the 200 mph club.

  • Favorite Z1R Helmet/Apparel:
