Real name is Emmett and I'm in So. California. Bought my 525XC in Jan. of this year (07) and just love it. I previously had and raced (desert as I'm too big for track) a Honda CR500. I sold that a while ago, 10 years ago and left riding for a while. I have a '90 Honda CR 125 and an '82 Honda 185 XR. '82 was for my kid to learn on when he was 13 and then we got the 125 which I mostly rode as it was so fun and light to throw around while getting back into riding. I mostly go out to the desert with a bunch of guys I've known since grade school some 25 years ago. I love going to Dove Springs and then riding through Red Rock and down to Jawbone Cyn and back. That trip makes my old body feel its age but it is so much fun. Look forward to being here on this site.
