“I was fortunate enough to be able to ride a full Mitch Payton Pro circuit Kawasaki 125cc (two stroke) “
“That was the bike the majority of us wanted to ride. I know i did when i was 10 years old sitting in the stands of the SX races or the uphill at Washougal .”
“Needless to say it was possibly the most fun I had the whole break. Granted the four strokes have gotten a lot better the past few years. Still the thing was amazing and unbelievably easy to ride. I rode it and rode it and rode it some more, partially just so I could listen to it!”
“I want to thank Mitch Big time for letting me do it.”
