Hey guys this is my first post on this site. Ive been reading alot of threads, watching and studying videos, taking notes on everything i can to better every single aspect of my lifestyle/riding/mental and physical life; all for the reasons of moto. My goals are becoming a pro and I know i am going to get there. I never felt the need to post anything untill now after reading some very inspirational stuff on this site. I appreciate and respect all you guys that give positivity to everyone else on this site. Its exactly what the world needs. Now onto my real reason for this post. Im 20 years old been riding/ a little racing off and on for 10 years and now i am on my way of going pro but let me tell u a lil about my past 2 years. I hadnt been riding for about 3 years and i bought a honda 250f. I bought it because i wanted to do what i love doing the most plus i know i have everything that it takes to become a pro. so i wanted to do that. i rode for about 2 months and tore my acl on a stupid crash that shouldnt have happened, i layed the bike over in a corner lol. On that note i was kinda happy about getting hurt because i knew that injuries are only part of the long, exciting road of a moto career. And i knew i was on my way. Long story short i ended up selling my bike because i neede money for bills. I got so pissed off at myself after the injury healed because now that i was all better i had nothing to ride. So i bought myself a 98 kx 250 2 banger just to have a bike and do some riding. I havnt rode the bike yet due to alot of family crap. but now that the dust has settled i got myself a very good paying job and am saving evey penny i have but spending every penny i need to get where i need to go. now to the current time of my life. I realized after alot of reading and wisdom that i need a 125. Im 5'6 160 lbs. in very good shape and a 125 would be perfect for getting me for being fast. Any way i have a plan. i have a plan and actually following through on it and its getting me closer, faster then i thought to reaching my goals. My goals are to get to the ama pro level. I know that it is going to be a long hard journey. But to me when someone tells me that its going to be hard, but someone else has already done it, that just lets me know that i can do it that much better then they can. My brain and my body make that happen. I still have the 98 kx 250 and an planning on selling it for a 125 very soon as soon as i get a seat cover for it. Its in very good condition so if theres anyone in az looking for a older but great shape kx let me know. So anyway i just wanted to let everyone know that i am taking everyones advice, taking it to heart, and actually following through on it. I will and am following my dreams, and very soon i am going to get there. So if anyone had some advise or good words for me that would be great! Thanks for spending the time to read my post, Cody. p.s. part of my plans do include lorettas. If you are to ask me what my plans are to follow through on this i could be writing this all night long but I really do have it all planned out. And once i have a plan I am unstoppable. I would love to talk and ask questions and answer all questions to anyone who takes the time to read this. Thanks again everyone.
