I’m Famous, Now Where is My Royalty Check?
Famous and Didn’t Even Know It
Even though I am the guy who exploits the internet, sometimes it catches even me by surprise. This one is in a way I wouldn’t have even imagined. Turns out I am more talented than I guessed.
Neena was searching for a dirt bike image yesterday, something that we might use on a logo for Enduro360. Last night she tells me ” I found a cartoon character that looks just like you”. I didn’t think too much about it at the time, what does she know anyway.
So today she asks me to come and take a look. “I am sure you will think I am crazy, but to me it looks a lot like you” she says. Now, I sit and look at pictures of myself on motorcycles all day, it only took a flash for recognition. Sure enough, that is me. It took a little longer for me to figure out where the image originated. It is me on a Kawasaki, not an every day occurrence. It has to be from the 2008 MotoUSA enduro shootout:

So just what is this picture anyway? It is from Itunes. I have an app and did not even know it! I am apparently the main (uncredited) dude in “Moto Mania Dirt Bike Challenge” for your I Pad. Who would have guessed.
Clearly they did not exactly choose me based upon my race record. They obviously have never seen me at a photo shoot either. My claim to fame on a dirt bike is that I make it stay upright. No wheelies, cool jumps and fancy berm shots, I just don’t fall down very often.
So there you go, check out the link. You and your I Pad can probably improve my riding skills.
