Buddy the Motocross Bike was created by Kyle Burger. Kyle raced motocross throughout his youth and was pursuing a career in racing. On October 1st, 2008, fate stepped in and kicked his racing career to the curb. Kyle broke his neck at the age of 18 at a Dodge Amateur National. This would halt his career in motocross but not his love for the sport. While Kyle could not race anymore, he still was very passionate about motocross and wanted to be involved in it in some way. So... he decided to write a book. A kids book about motocross, to inspire tomorrows youth to grow up loving motocross like he did. During the process of writing the book he had an illustrator that was doing a great job. Although life got in the way for him and he had to back out. So Kyle was stuck with half of a book illustrated. As fate would have it, an old friend of his was finishing school to become an illustrator and they got back in touch. The rest is history. He started from scratch illustrating the book and did a fantastic job creating many professional illustrations. Kyle is in the process of writing more books, so stay tuned! Author: Growing up I could never find any Motocross or even dirt bike books for kids. So, I decided to write a book just for kids that was all about motocross / dirt bikes & racing!
