I know they are right when they say FIND YOUR PASSION and follow it. I was lucky to find it early in my life at the age of 12, when my dad bought me my first scooter. From then on, I was all about motorcycles. This was the medium that I was passion about and which opened many doors and introduced to many handshakes over the past 16 years.
