SA Why do you ride or want to ride on 2-wheels?
L It’s fun of course!
SA Have you always been drive to explore adventurous activities?
L Yes! I like the thrill and excitement- to conquer and survive. Reminds me I am alive. I have swam with sharks, mountain biked on world class trails, white water rafted class IV & V rapids, wreck dove in Hawaii, kayaked all over, been caving-spelunking, zip lined across canyons and rivers etc. Nowhere near done yet.
