X Games is about a week away and its going to be a blast! I will be doing my best to update several times a day here on my MXGirls blog in my own tacky fashion! So, please plan on visiting my blog a lot!

On a non-moto note, I’d like to share with you my most recent outing with some “inspirational” friends. I guess I will call it Project M, because it’s totally undercover and if I told you the details this may be the last blog I ever post! So basically, lets sum it up to a lot of respect goes out to the men who live, breath and die for our country. I have a new love for these men, all of them, unsung heroes.

To many of you, Wee Man would be your hero. To me, my Brother in Law Kip Keune is my hero. He has given many years to the freedom of our country and now he is giving back to the soldiers who are walking in his steps.
