They say all good things come to an end. I’m so thankful for the career I had. I accomplished some things that I had never thought of and had a long career(13 years). One thing I’m very proud of is that no matter the result I always worked hard and gave it my all! I was able to travel the world racing and meet so many great people and life long friends. I want to thank everyone that ever gave me an opportunity and believed in me. I thought long and hard about when it was time to hang up the boots and the simple answer is one day I just knew. I’m excited for the future and what’s next in my life. I have some fun opportunities that are coming in the near future that will allow me to still be involved with motorcycles. I will still be around and go to some races and I will continue to ride. My love for motorcycles and the sport has not changed. I want to thank all of my fans throughout my career. You guys have really shown me love and that truly does mean a lot. THANK YOU! 🎥 @phantasosmedia @kylecowling
