The Thrill of the Race
The truth about racing is that it was always one of the things I wanted to do on my bucket list. In my early years in California, I had a Honda Elsinore and many off road bikes that were affordable to satisfy my need for speed. In 2001, I purchase my first new Ducati 900 SS and started riding it on the track. I enjoyed it very much.
I also raced with Karts, all the way to shifters, and a Honda civic. But in my mind racing a motorcycle was a pending matter to materialize sooner or later. It wasn’t until my friend Steve Hatfield sold me a very nice Ducati 250, and got involved with AHRMA, a vintage racing series that truly got me into racing. Today, I race along with my son, Damian. We enjoy being on the track at the same time, and compete like real racers. As I always say, “When I have my helmet on, the race is on.” Racing is a rush very difficult to express and only another racer will understand, it keeps me young.
