Mom wanted me to ride her, but I wouldn't. Finally I gave in after all the time she tried to get me to ride her. Boy I'm glad I gave in because I've loved riding ever since and I've loved Kate ever since. We clicked instantly and Mom noticed cause she'd always say "You know, Cory, Kate seems to really like you." So we've been a pair since eighth grade. She'll never be going to shows, but we will be taking on some trails with me whenever I can. She loves me and I love her, and it's the best feeling in the world.
