    We still have a Kona poster at the shop with him sending that huge Adidas wood drop. I was actually wondering recently where he wound up - good flashback, Vital!!

    Talk about a step up from what he used to do...that moto life he is living is badass.

    For all the youngsters:



    And some high speed moto action:



    Carlin won the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in 2011 and 2012 on a Ducati Multistrada 1200, setting an all time motorcycle record the first year and breaking his own record in 2012. His 9:52.8 time means an average of 75.4mph. Gnarly!

    Everything I've ever done on a bike was because a friend showed me that NWD 6 segment when I was 13 or 14
