What you like about the Rovers: My dog always went over to Rovers camp to poop, so I figured...... Really, I knew alot of the Rovers anyway. We helped form four on the floor, but we need to be part of a club with more members and be able to join in to support.
Racing Accomplishments: Long History of bike racing from mid 70's to 95. Was D-37 expert in 200 and open class. SRA Gp's, SCORE finisher. LOTS of D-37 GP trophies. Then Law School happened and it all went away. Came back with a CR500 in 1992 as a slow vet class rider.

Other Info: I had a BIG crash in 1995 at a practice track so there was no riding for 8 years. Well it still hurts every day but I started riding a quad for fun in 2003. Now Aaron wanted to race, so here we are.
