If Aaron wrote what kkawbro quoted above I'd like to say that I really like that quote. He's 100% write in my opinion. The only way people get it is if you can get them to come to the track and take a lap or two. I did that recently with a guy that had never been on dirt. He was, simply put, amazed. He had no clue. He's got a clue now.

Aaron has been at it for a long time and is a really strong writer. Believe it or not, there are more moto journalists out there than just GuyB, ML512, Coombs, Weege, Maeda, Matthes and Weisel.

Wow thanks Bayo that's nice of you to say. You might be stretching it with the "strong writer" part though. I mean, if you take 100 shots, sooner or later a couple are going to go in, right? Does that last question make me the Philthy of motojournalists?

And yeah, there are a few more journalists around than you might think. Some of them even bring moto to the mainstream. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/author/bayo-olukotun

Kawboy, you can have my zipcode - 95926. Good enough?

Because I'm studying journalism in school, I tend to be a bit harsh on moto "journalists." That being said, Hansel is a breath of fresh air.

What a legend Chris Matuka is! Freddy showed his appreciation with riding really well, nice of them to install a new clutch in his engine afterwards too.

If there is anything that this horrible tragedy can teach us, it's that a male model's life is a precious, precious commodity. Just because we have chiseled abs and stunning features, it doesn't mean that we too can't not die in a freak gasoline fight accident.

So cool that someone would loan their motor to another rider. It's not like they are cheap to rebuild! Nice of them to install the clutch too...appreciation for the grind from both camps, I love seeing stories like this...and a well written article!

Probably because you're from Chico! Did you have something to do with The Graduate closing down? Have some family up there...cool place to hang your hat!
