Let's hear your life story- What inspires you to ride/race? What led you to GOR? What do you ride, and if orange, WHY?!?!?!?

Where are you located? Where do you like to ride/race? Why is KTMBob the favorite target among the smacktalkers?

Who do you like to ride with? And who DON'T you like to ride with :D and why??? :lol:

Any special interests? Helmetcams? 4x4 trucks? Street bikes? The second amendment? Roosting your riding buddies? Trying to become faster than that old grey guy (cough Paul Wright cough) ???

OK This will be short but sweet.

My husband bought me a honda 150 (w/o electric start :hmm: )

I started riding to make my family happy. I enjoy it and I know that my husband wishes that I would take some classes at HP (but Im a bit Intimidated :o )

I enjoy reading the GOR message board hoping that I might learn something

My profile name is motoprincess for a reason. Here it is:
I don't like to warm up my bike
I don't like to ride on extremely muddy trails (although im getting better)
I don't like ruts
I don't like to pick up my bike when I fall
I don't like to wash my bike
I don't like to load and unload my bike.
I guess that just about says it all.

I DO ENJOY MY FAMILY AND WHEN WE RIDE WE ALL HAVE A GREAT TIME AND THIS IS A WONDERFUL FAMILY ACTIVITY.

I have met some wonderful people, moms, dads, kids, and grandparents. I hope to continue to meet new friends and stay in touch with old friends.

Hope you enjoyed my post :D

Let's hear your life story- What inspires you to ride/race?
There is not enough snow down here to ride a snowmobile (plus I really like the being able to do something with my whole family and the great people we've met)

What led you to GOR?
I have no recollection of that but what does it matter, I'm here and I tell anyone who wants to hear about it "www.georgiaoffroad.com"

What do you ride,
An '04 KTM 450 EXC

and if orange, WHY?!?!?!?
peer pressure

Where are you located?
Acworth GA (on the very west side) just a short drive to HP :)

Where do you like to ride/race?
HP is my favorite and DP is the families favorite

Why is KTMBob the favorite target among the smacktalkers?
Who?

Who do you like to ride with?
The wife and kids, the OZ crew and some of the other great families and some ranger pals at HP

And who DON'T you like to ride with and why???
That chick Michele, she's too fast for me !!! :D :D

Any special interests?
We are loving camping...

Helmetcams?
Not yet but the price is dropping and I'll get one sometime

4x4 trucks?
72 Chevy Blazer is what I would buy if I could have another vehicle.
The current ride is an '04 Chevy 2500 HD Duramax Crew Cab

Street bikes?
Yeah, but it's orange and looks exactly like my dirt bike.

The second amendment?
Yes- got a 40 and 1000 rounds (just in case)

Roosting your riding buddies?
Technically I guess I would have to be in front of someone to do that.

Trying to become faster than that old grey guy (cough Paul Wright cough) ???
Not a possibility (or goal, I'm a realist)

What inspires you to ride/race?
Well actually one day we were at this HUGE flea market in Dallas,TX named Traders Village then we saw these lil no name bikes, our dad started talkin about how much fun he used to have on them so he got 2 for $400 after a month he sold them for$350 a piece an went on ebay and found us each a TTR-125, they were fun but they were more like trail bikes so after 4 months he got us RM125s then we moved and he sold them, then got me a CR125 and my bro a KDX200 but after a month he decided to just buy us a bike we could hold on to for awhile since he was deploying,so we both got YZ250s. and although ive only been riding for about a year(we moved twice, and went through a few bikes)i love it and would do it all day everyday if i could, i know some of that was sorta off topic but o well. unfortunetly ive never got the chance to race, and im still in the process o finding a place to start. I plan on staying with this for the rest of my life and although I started when i was 15( 16 now) im just happy i was able to get into it all, better late then never!


What do you ride, and if orange, WHY?!?!?!?
Well technically i ride blue(cause im ridin a yami) but since i got the custom hurricane graphic and plastic kit my bike is yellow(resembling suzuki in nooo way, ya know what i mean)

What lead you to GOR!?!?
K well really how i found GOR was through Yahoo when i was lookin for a site that i could get a few tips from, and i had seen the site a few times before but then i just recently decided to join in. Its somewhat a addicting to, rite now i should be doing math homework but instead im on here. :D

Where are you located?
I live in Hoschton, in Chateu Corners, its about 10 mins from FLowery Branch High School and the falcons training camp. Were also about 45 mins. from Monroe, and about 2 hours from BroadRiver( i love that place!)

Where do you like to ride/race?
I really like to ride at BroadRiverATV, even though its a pretty long drive there and back, but its really relaxed out there, never seen a whole bunch of people,so its worth it to me and my bro, sometimes our mom too. i also like Monroe, but it gets pretty crowded! My bro dont like it if i go, i go alone, mostly.

Why is KTMBob the favorite target among the smacktalkers?
I have no clue i dont even know who he is, mybe he just doesnt do nuttin about it so it just keeps happening, thats his fault.
Who do you like to ride with? I LOVE riding with my brother,we always compete, we're only exactly a year and 3 days apart, an were close but that doesnt mean we dont compete(thats a quote from my favorite movie, supercross, although it is true) Along with anyone else that wants to ride, as long as their not just gunna dust me because they can, thats no fun!
And who DON'T you like to ride with and why???
I dont like riding with my cousin because hes to up tight, he wont do anything on his bike and rarely takes it outta second. I also hate riding with show offs, i mean i bet you can guess why.
Any special interests? Pretty much riding my bike,football, wrestling(not the fake piddley-poo), and anything outdoors, although i hate fishing.

Helmetcams?
Nope no cams rite now, ill think about gettin 1 once im better.
4x4 trucks?
Well i got an F-150 i love it, gets the job done and is good enough for my needs.
Street bikes?
Nope right now my mom is dead set on not letting us get a street bike but my bro and i are working on that and we figure we should have one by next year, as juniors it'd be pretty cool, we'd be the only ones at our school with bikes.
The second amendment?
Yep for sure, got a 12 gauge, .45 , and 9mm, also a lil .22 for fun, but ey a gun is a gun,they can all kill so of course im cafeful, and im not old enough to have them on me so they stay in my room. :D ;)
Roosting your riding buddies?
At my level of skill only people i can really diss are my cousins(who ride) and my trash talkin friends(some ride,some dont)
Trying to become faster than that old grey guy (cough Paul Wright cough) ???
Shoot im just trying to become a faster rider, period, just wana keep up with the local track guys.

C'mon, lets hear all the dirt on ya...
Well i got 99 problems,and ride time is one of them, id do anything to ride more often! Another one is school, my grades are good(gotta be cuz of my mom) but it just takes up to much time! I WANA RIDE!
Step on in, the water's fine.
It was kinda cool at first but its warmin up!
Don't be a lurker
I aint lurkin, im tryin to met people, this site is awesome

sign on up and share some of yourself, and make a couple new friends in the process.
Well thats what im hoping to do! :) :D
