When are you gonna get back to racing? Because I miss seeing u your my hero. Don't forget my name please!

maculey_loves_my_dog Sep 8

@ryanvillopoto Ryan I hope you have time to read this. I know you've heard his a million times but I am your number one fan, when I say I am your number one fan that is not an exaggeration. The reason why is not because I ride a kawasaki too or because you're famous it's because you're the best rider to exist. I don't just mean your riding skills I mean your dedication, appreciation, and care for not only the sport, but your competitors as well as you're fans. The posters of you in my room as well as the other merchandise of you that have can't tell the true fan that I am. By now I've seen story of a champion 3 times and I love to watch your races whenever I can. After all the fame you've had your still caring for everybody as well as you're not "big headed". Not to mention how tough you are considering all the injuries you've had and especially all the hard times you've had as a kid. It would mean the world to me if you did something as small as follow me, reply to me, or just read this. I really hope this message stands out to you. I hope you're happy doing what you're doing ( who wouldn't? ) and thanks for every thing you've done. You're the best.

jake_medlar Sep 9

Cool @maculey_loves_my_dog

stevenwilliams34 Sep 10

I'm actually his number 1 fan bub..

mxgt14 Sep 11

@maculey_loves_my_dog 😂😂 cause the love he has for his fans and the sport. Come on dude, I mean really. He's so tired of this sport

maculey_loves_my_dog Sep 11

@mxgt14 yeah everybody will eventually get tired and drop out. Look at Ricky Carmichael he was tired of the sport and is now retired. He still loves the sport but is just tired of it. He still rides dirt bikes but just Doesn't race anymore. And if Ryan is really tired of the sport then he could just retire too. I mean the dudes a millionaire yet he is still in motocross, but eventually he probably will.
