About 012 Matt Watkins(WA)

Since I didn’t have anybody to take a photo I thought it would be fun to use a cool app to automatically take a panoramic photo and get on the score board in wide aspect style. (“Cycloramic” for iPhone dwellers) I’m Matt Watkins from Pasco, WA and this is my fourth year riding the BMR. This year looks THE BEST EVAR! Guaranteed silly fun! Thanks RJ, Grace, and BMR volunteers! Been riding since I was about 4 years old and first dirtbike at 6. Didn’t start riding streets until I was about 22 or so…and then long-distance scavenger hunts in 2005 was life changing. A few artifacts are included in my selfie that are lying around my living room…all symbolic of a world of places I’ve ridden (including my placard from last year), competitive rallies I’ve gotten trophies in, people I’ve met, one person I’ve lost, and hair extensions I carried around in the Iron Butt Rally this year. I’ll be riding 2014 on my trusty FJR with 160,000 miles on it and also my Husqvarna TR650 I’m adventure riding on.
