Who is Elton
I was born in Brazil and moved to USA, California back in 1996. Took me some time to learn the language and get into this country, but I think now I'm doing quite well.
I became an American citizen in late 2007 but that didn't help me much with my English skills!
I love to travel and by the time I was writing this page, I had logged more them 140.000 miles on the motorcycles I have/had. My current bikes are a 2002 BMW K1200LTe and a 2003 BMW R1150GS.
Also there are many more miles on my car and much more on airplane trips. Winter I try to do Snowmobile. Summer is time for water sports (PWC) and I motorcycle year around (one of the benefits of living in sunny California)
