I am no longer at Wild West Honda.

I just want to let everyone know that as of today I'm no longer at Wild West Honda. I've been there for a long time and wish them continued success. I just felt like it was time for me to move on. I enjoyed meeting all of you and appreciated the opportunity to help out when I could. I'm not sure what my next move is, maybe I'll end up somewhere and we will meet again. If any of you other sponsors need an experienced employee please let me know. Thanks again.

Thanks Bevo. Also, thanks for the great review you gave Mike Owens when he recently serviced your bike. He's a great mechanic and treats customers bikes like his own.

Nothing happened, just felt like it was time to move on. Our GM was great, but as of yesterday he is no longer there.

I'm in contact with several places at the moment. Thanks for all of your support, it really means a lot. I'll let you know very soon what my new situation may look like. I will definately be at another shop, It's what I know and also enjoy doing. I rode my bicycle to the local Honda dealer in So.Cal at 15 yeas old to wash bikes so I could race motocross and get a discount on parts. I'm no longer 15, but still enjoy the motorycle shop and helping people. I thought I new a lot about bikes in general until i started road racing and realized I was a complete 'tard. My novice theory on racing was " pin it, and let it wiggle!" Had I only understood the concept of geometry and bike set up. It takes more than a $1000 Ohlins shock to make you faster.
