Keep Rippin' // Jason Hamborg's Yamaha YZ250x

by Kelly Kawasaki

Why did you choose your Yamaha YZ250x?
I chose my current bike mainly because I ride a lot of different types of terrain, from motocross to hard enduro, and the
Yamaha YZ250x satisfies all of those styles pretty well. Plus, Yamaha's have always had a place in my heart since I started on the ol' PW50.

Don't Be a Squid // Phoenix Rider's Kawasaki Ninja 400 and Yamaha Bolt

How did you get into riding motorcycles?
I grew up in Dhaka, Bangladesh. A very overcrowded city with millions of motorcycle roaming around the city. I was initiated with motorcycle riding at an early age by my cousin who had
Honda CB125. Back in the early 90s, a 125cc seemed like a big bike, and I was 12 years old. Before that, I rode bicycles since I was 5, owned motorized trikes, and had a mini-moto. My dad owned a Suzuki supermoto. I always had a fascination with motorcycles and MotoGP. At 15 I moved to Sydney, Australia. A city with a big motorcycle culture due to hot weather, and very mild
Winter.
