Hello my name is Mike

MJ Sand Diego

Hey all,

I am recently into desert biking after a lifetime of street riding...Recently purchased a DRZ400s for commuting/riding purposes, and typically ride that or my buddys CRF450x in the desert. I just raced my first race ever..and it was the 2009 Baja 500...it was actually perusing photos of this event I came across the site, and saw one of my pictures in the forums. I had a blast during the race, and while we were in the sportsman class, 279x, and not extremely competitive, our goal to finish the race was realized. We had some mechanical issues, and finished in 18 hours, but we had the balls to do it after only 1 season of dirt riding, and we FINISHED! I plan on honing my skills, and hopefully competing in the 1000, in september.
