I have been snowboarding since 1987. A friend got me started after watching a film about extreme sports that showcased it. There is nothing quite like it that comes close to the feeling of riding. I have been to Winter Park, Steamboat, Vail, Keystone, Arapaho Basin, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, and Telluride in Colorado, Jackson Hole in Wyoming and Whistler/Blackcomb in Canada.

Growing up I had the Honda Spree 50, and the Honda ATC 110, but that ended as soon as I got my driver's licence. I started motorcycling at the encouragement from a friend who wanted to take the Illinois Motorcycle Safety Course (MSF) in 2000. At first I had some reservations, but I have not looked back since. After two weeks of completing the course, I purchased my first Motorcycle. A White/Silver 2001 Honda Shadow Ace Deluxe 750. I currently have the 2003 Honda VTX 1300 in Orange. I am waiting for the day for the second cycle, a standard most likely. There is nothing like it, I think that only other motoryclists can attest to.
