Endorsed since 1982, Larry started doing motorcycle enthusiast web sites in 2010 when he customized a Honda VTX. He followed that up with a Harley Rocker Custom, and then a Ducati Diavel. In 2017 he decided to do a video series documenting his dream to do track days. See more info below and visit each of our areas for lots of links to related photos and videos.
The 2020 riding season started in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were told to distance ourselves and race tracks didn't open until June... so in April Larry decided to get a dual sport. He's never even ridden a motorcycle off road before (like gravel or dirt) and thought this would be a good time to start exploring.
So in 2020, he is returning to tracks as usual, but when not at the tracks he is entering the world of Adventure riding.
In 2019 Larry moved into racing where he covered race prep, and New Racer School required to get his race license, and more racing. Along the way he did more interviews to introduce you to some of his new friends and some of the top racers in the Northwest.
In 2018 we made many new friends in the Northwest motorcycle racing community. Since then we have created a racing section where we gather information related to motorcycle racers and racing.
In 2018, we returned to the tracks. This time with even more bike options and more tracks. We found out from others in 2017 that small bikes and small tracks are a way to learn quickly, so we added those to our 2018 schedule. We had many more people behind the scenes for 2018 and we posted 37 videos (not including award video uploads)! Including: Yamaha R1, Yamaha R3, Ninja 300

In 2017, we did a 33 video series that documented Larry's first ever track days. The series covers personal one-on-one instruction, on board cameras, and commentary from other riders, instructors, and racers on their journey to track days. This series lead to RDR's first movie released in November of 2018. Larry's 2017 Season Bikes: 2003 Honda CBR 954RR, 2007 Honda CBR 1000RR
