Why do we ride? Is it the mental escape? Is it the feeling of flight? Is it
capturing the unknown?

For certain it is the sensation you feel at the end of the day. The ride makes usmore aware of who we are. The trail or track transports us to an indescribable stateof mental and physical satisfaction. FAMILY MOTO FIRST is a motto that we live byhere at FMF Racing. We are deeply rooted in this fabric, and when two wheels bringyou across paths of other packs that feel your same passion, bonds are formed. Thisis who we are, and our trail boss friends at WLF Enduro truly live this family motolifestyle. WLF is a hardcore off-road crew who have gained a global following bysharing their backcountry adventures, and we are stoked to be along for the ride.

For DROP 004 we decided to team up with one of WLF pack’s very own, Luke Takahashi,who is not only talented on two wheels, but also a runs a very successful businessas Creative Director at at Related Grey - a graphic and 3D motion design studio -and all around legend. I have personally had the chance to follow Luke’s lead on thetrails and he is definitely a boss. Seeing him progress each time, and theenthusiasm he has for two wheels, is why we do what we do. The laughs, smiles, andstories are things us filthy dirtbikers all bond over, so thank you WLF Enduro andLuke for designing DROP 004.

We are now onto DROP 004 #fmfthedrop and we can’t tell you how much fun we arehaving with these artists’ projects and want to thank you for sticking with us onthis journey, because we are all one big FAMILY MOTO FIRST!Until next round, keep it on two and have FUN twisting that throttle!
