Life on Two Wheels Editor’s Vlog | Back in the Saddle!



Presented by Bell Helmets

It’s been a long six weeks, but I got to ride and race my dirt bike again last week! Though my broken collarbone allowed me to continue to ride my mountain bike conservatively, I didn’t really realize how much I missed moto until we lined up the five Edition bikes at Cahuilla Creek MX for our shootout! Though I don’t enjoy riding in bike comparison tests, I know that I am fortunate to be able to take part in such events and the day reignited my desire to twist the throttle again! So much so, that I decided to hit the opening round of the AMSOIL/Dirt Bike Kidz Swapmoto Race Series West Coast Open at LACR MX, on the exact six-week anniversary of my injury! I lost to that Scrub Daddy guy, but just wait until I get my comfort level back! Haha!
