Deano seems to have a really good and humble personality. Good guy

That was awesome. I've always been a huge fan of his but even moreso now.

Hopefully Dean can keep a spot on a top tier team.

Right on Deano! Been a big fan since the early pro circuit days and I've been stoked on his career resurrection at husky on the 450. I really hope he can stay healthy and Husky resigns him. If not then I hope another team picks him up.

Right on Peelout .. as if Dean goes around and checks houses out. He friken went off lookin for a little kid struggling with an older bike, but doing their best...was this that the same bloke who put a Nasty comment on deans Instagram... Deano swiftly shut that down...
Fantastic job from Dean loved the video. Man a wanna see him get some wins. .. people's champ.

Nailed it you skank. Some or most don't use the magical brain.

Does anyone know if dean on husky next year? I know it’s probably unlikely with Osborne moving up but Daniel and him seem like a good team

This changed my attitude towards Deano. The young man has a heart bigger than most...and surely bigger than most his age. Classiest thing I've seen in years.

Ok...that does it, damnit!!! I'm officially a Dean Wilson fanboy.

Brought some tears to my eye watching this.

This is the type of thing that makes the moto community so great and really hope more follow in the footsteps of Malcolm and Deano and some others who have done similar acts of kindness not posted on social media. Doesn't have to be brand new bikes, but just reaching out to the kids riding at the track emulating their favorite riders and to have them show up and give those kids any kind of attention is awesome. Made my Friday for sure!

Well that's it. Apart from one guy on here trying to bring it down a tiny bit by saying "the house was too nice" everyone else in this thread universally agrees that Dean is a good dude for making the effort to get the gear, and then putting in the time and finding a worthy kid. Full props Deano, not only have you done a great bit of charitable work here, but it actually led to a Vital thread that is 99% positive. That in itself is noteworthy and you can also feel proud to have united a dysfunctional community laughing

Too cool! Great on Deano and everyone involved. Already a fan, but here's hoping 2019 goes better than excellent for this young man

6/29/2018 3:24 PM

Dean, I’ve always liked you. I seriously want to go buy a Husky now just because of this video. And the white has grown on me now. lol

What more can be said? Deano is wise beyond his years. Of course he's completely crazy...but it's that really good kinda crazy that the world needs much more of. Always been a fan...but now I'm a SUPER fan. Heal up and get back out there you wild man.

I see Peeler covered this nicely.

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

Top Shelf guy, that was pretty generous and ultra cool.

No need to rip the guy apart. Honestly, that was my initial reaction as well but wasn't going to comment on it since I caught it on the second watch.

A seemingly nice house in Cali is not cheap, so it's not a surprise that he'd have that thought. I remember riding 4 people deep on a bench seat in my dad's 1988 pickup truck with 3 bikes lodged in the back to make it to races every weekend. Two of us would share a seatbelt and the other would get the lap belt. Everyone sees struggles differently.

I'm not saying they're not deserving or anything, for the record. I think Deano picked a great kid and really anyone would be lucky enough to receive such a generous gift.

I think the point is that this little dude has been thru a rough patch and his mom is doin’ her best...
He’s out there on a old PW & hanging it out like a Boss...
His mom made a VERY heart-felt comment about what racing has meant to Luke...

The point made is correct: watch the video & LISTEN.

Deano CRUSHED it and he found the perfect little dude to help.

Some threads just don’t need ANY negativity...

That’s all.

I've always been a Deano fan, but this just bumped him up to damn near sainthood in my book. And it's damn good to hear that Luke is a good kid, too. Thanks for posting this Jeff.
