Kimchi is a South Korean traditional food that comes in many different varieties but most frequently is made with fermented Napa cabbage and hot Korean spices. Kimchi unfortunately smells like hot garbage or putrid farts but is loaded with nutrition and beneficial digestive enzymes. It turns out to be one of my personal favorite foods and within the seven days in Seoul I would say it is safe to say I ate around 50 pounds of it. Kimchi was served everywhere, with every meal and even was a quick snack option at the convenience store. Within a couple days into the South Korean stint of our journey, Jay Roe informed me that he was going to "beat my ass" if he heard me say the word Kimchi again. Obviously I took the threat as an embarrassing joke since Jay could not actually fight his way through a wet fart and continued to talk enthusiastically about how amazing it is eating Kimchi like it was my job.
"Oh hey.. look a vert ramp" I said to myself enthusiastically before waking up in a stretcher. I love riding vert ramps, there is something so intriguing about them knowing that I can only scratch the surface of their potential. With that being said I am going to be a lot more hesitant when given the opportunity to ride vert since a first run case left me sleeping in the flat bottom. Apparently my subconscious is an emotional roller-coaster from high points of answering the question of "Who is the president?" with "He's a fucking mark" to low points of balling my eyes out while screaming "Don't hurt me". After riding for over twelve years I suppose it was only a matter of time before I got the lights turned off while riding but id never thought that it would be in Japan and I can't think of a better place to go for a ride in an ambulance and take a visit to the ER. I have definitely not read up on the current Japanese healthcare system nor do I know which type of system they have in place. What I do know though, is that my visit to the ER in Japan was amazing, it was unbelievably fast and unbelievably cheap. Thank you again to Reia from Motocross INTL for making sure everything was taken care of, you're the best!
