The Future of Motorcycles Part 3
Ride Like a Local got to talk with the young men of the Yamaha Riding Academy. With various interests in bikes, these young men were here to ride for the first time and practice up for the nicer riding weather. We spoke with them before and after their rides.
Elijah before: Elijah wants a bike for his birthday. His dad said if he wants one, he has to get on one and try it out first.
Elijah after: One he got the hang of the clutch and the brake he had a great time. Of course, going fast was his favorite part. Elijah is in grade 4 and wants to be a plastic surgeon!
Aden before: Aden has never ridden a bike but can't wait because he knows it's going to be exciting!
Aden after: Aden really enjoyed himself and can't wait to ride his own bike. He plans on getting a street bike when he is 15 or 16 years old. Aden is in grade 6 and loves to get smarter and have a good education.
Harwan before: Harwan is Adens brother and each got dirt bikes for Christmas. They are out here today to practice before getting on their own bikes.
Harwan after: Harwan said the ride was pretty good and it felt great to go fast. He almost wiped out a couple of times but made it unscathed. Harwan is in grade 7 and not certain of his career in the future.
If you are blessed enough to live where you can be riding today, please remember to ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you.
