A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

I would say I am a very positive happy gentleman and love the outdoors. I enjoy going out on my dirt bike, this could be on a field or a track. I do struggle with processing information and need guidance and support to be able to process it affectively. I have been confused and unaware of my actions and have been stopped by the police for riding my dirt bike on a public road, this is why we are seeking someone to support me to ensure I can continue enjoying biking, but in the most responsible way. We are looking for someone who has access to a van or trailer as you will need to transport to and from the field / track with my dirty bike. A Bike enthusiast would be perfect!
