I love your magazine….I love it so much that when I went on a 16 day tour of Peru I had to bring the most recent copy of Dirt Rider with me to one of the wonders of the world, Machu Picchu!
I have been in the sport for about 12 years now, suffering a broken back/broken left wrist and have blown out both my rotator cuffs as well as many other bumps and scrapes; but hey, scars are just tattoos with better stories. I started riding on a 2-Stroke 2001 Honda CR125R Blackfoot Race Edition then I moved on to a 2010 Honda CRF250R and as of last month I am proud to say I have gone back to a two smoker, purchasing a brand new 2012 KTM 250SX.

It takes a special breed of moto maniac to bury his nose in a Dirt Rider while standing at the mystical gateway to an ancient world. You, Matt, are an animal, but I like your style. In fact, I’ll bet that if the Incas who built Machu Picchu were around today they’d be just as astonished seeing your Dirt Rider as most people are when seeing their city. History aside, stop getting hurt—a man with your extreme level of enthusiasm should not be bound to a couch for six week stretches while his two-stroke sits patiently in the garage. If you need extra motivation, give yourself some incentive: if you can go an entire year without crashing, treat yourself to an exotic vacation. I hear the Parthenon is a great spot to read Dirt Rider. – Chris Denison
