Well, probably not what you were expecting but the story goes like this. I have always loved bikes and last year I decided to start racing. I know I know....a little late at 37 but I guess better late than never. In order to fund a top of the line bike with all the performance necessities I decided to sell my 243. So, it only seemed appropriate that this be my race number in memory of my 243i. Since the decision was made, I have been racing endurocross, arenacross, enduros and some motocross. This is my new race bike: 2012 KTM fuel injected 350XC-F.

... the 243 or the 243?

Hopefully your 243 (watch) had nothing to do with that mud bath?

Cheers Bro!
