The weather is back to normal from the cold 5os to the upper 60s to low 70s. A boy could get spoiled by all this, I guess that is why I moved out here.
This week has been good Senior RKC Geoff Neupert and his wife stopped out and visited on their way down to LA. It is always good to hook up with my brothers from the RKC. We have really become family.
Speaking of family I think my brother is coming out the first week of Feb. to got to a concert and supercross race. That is if he gets off his ass and buys a plane ticket!
2009 promises to be fantastic with so many new possibilities on the horizon. Happy New Year!

He had fallen asleep on the couch with this cd playing. He woke up and this song was playing in the background and he got all freaked out until he was completely awake and figured out what was going on.

So JEB and I set up the HUGE trampoline that Santa brought and didn't realize the size of such a beast. The kids on the other hand were very happy with the whole thing. After that we did one of my favorite things in the world. We loaded up motorcycles and headed out to the local motocross track so the kids could ride. There are four little Burlesons Bird (10), K (7), GG (4) and Kai ( 6 months?). We took the three older ones and yes the four year old rides his own bike.
The track makes me feel at home no matter where I'm at in the world. I was raised going to races of all kinds, cars, bikes , trucks anything with a motor and wheels we were there. No main stream stuff for the Nepodals just dirt and noise. Anyway we hit the track which was muddy and wet!! All three suited up and off they went. GG made it 1/4 of a lap and the mud proved to be to much and flopped off face first into a mud hole. This made him cry, not because he was hurt but he couldn't see a damn thing. His goggles were covered!!! The rest of the day went smooth. Then we loaded up drove home cleaned up and headed out for some Mexican food and called it a day. Thanks to the clan it was fun as always.
Its funny that the track makes me feel at home, but I have spent so much of my life at one it makes sense. Its the smell, the people, the dirt and the noise. To this day my Mom could sleep all day next to a track, just as long a family member or friend isn't racing. I will never lose the desire to ride and get dirty. Thanks to my Mom and Dad for that, that is what being a Nepodal and Burleson is all about!

I have been doing two BJJ classes on both Tuesday and Thursday. I have found that if I tons of ballistic kettlebell drills on Tuesday and Thursday my body can't recover enough which beats me into the ground. The next two weeks will be more laid back with the holidays.

It still doesn't feel like Christmas is around the corner. What kills me out here is watching people in the grocery store with their coats, hats, boots and gloves on. Keep in mind we are talking about temps in the mid 50's!!!!!!!!!!!! You would think the were walking out into 5 inches of snow. I also here get asked about walking around dressed like that. You know my normal gear, flip flops, shorts, t-shirt and hoodie. I hope I will never get to this point, if I do shoot me.

These kind of days are always a good time. Nothing like being the center of attention for a whole day.

Yesterday after my session I drove farther up the road and found a wicked hairpin in the road and parked in the dirt in the middle and sat there for almost two hours. I was lost in the sound and smell of bikes racing up and down the road. This is home to me!! Two wheeled machines at the closest you can get to flying and I really miss having one.
