Bautista takes us back to the first time he first threw his leg over two wheels. As he’s asked to recall his first memories on a motorcycle, it’s evident that his disposition lights up with joy and excitement.
While he’s had a lot of success professionally racing motorcycles, he delights in taking this short trip down memory lane, and sharing his earliest memories of how getting on two wheels have helped shape his life.
“Well, my first memory was when I was three years old,” Bautista starts. “I remember that my father loved bikes. And for him, it was his hobby.” Naturally, his father wanted to share that love with is son. So, he did.
Bautista adds, “I remember that he wanted to teach me to ride a motorcycle. But, first of all, I didn't know how to ride a bicycle. I remember that one weekend, he taught me to ride a bicycle. The next weekend, he tried to teach me how to ride a motorbike!”
