Dylan8.jpgWhat kind of bike do you have? It’s a Kawasaki Ninja 250. I call it my “baby blue.” I ride it to school every day. I got it because it’s a good first bike to have, it was inexpensive and it looks nice!

Do you think that you’ll keep this bike for a while? After a while, I’ll probably move up to a 600+ cc bike, but I’m waiting on that. There’s only a certain amount of time to be stoked on a 250, so I’m taking full advantage of that.

Dylan4How often do you wear your gear? I wear my gear all the time because if I were to eat it (fall), I’m a lot less likely to die or get seriously injured. Also, my shoes are leather and padded in case any rocks or debris pop up from the road.

How else do you practice safety? I practice safety in a ton of different ways. Most importantly, I drive defensively and always ride toward open space rather than tighter areas.

Dylan10What do you like most about biking? It’s so fun.  There are few other things that feel more freeing than being on the open road. Plus, all of the power coming from such a small and light vehicle really does make you feel alive. I guess so does being so close to death…weird how that works.

Dylan3.jpgWhen’s the last time you got a haircut? I’ve mostly just gotten it styled, but the last time I actually cut it was about three years ago.

Dylan5.jpgWhy the Mets tee? Ahhh, the Mets. I grew up around a bunch of Phillies fans, but I was the only one that loved the Mets. They are a staple of my rebellious youth. I’m what you would call a very average sports fan. I don’t go out of my way to watch, but if it’s on I’m down.

How would you describe your style in three words? My fashion is a radical take on street wear (sorry that’s four words).

Plus, all of the power coming from such a small and light vehicle really does make you feel alive. I guess so does being so close to death…weird how that works.

Dylan7.jpgDo you have any tattoos? I have three tattoos! They’re all on my legs and butt and are all stick and pokes. My friend did this one on my butt. “Send it” to me embodies my personality. It’s a combination of stoke and action.
