Who is Stuman anyway?
Well, my name is Stuart Smith and I was given the nickname Stuman years ago by a good friend and it stuck. By day I work for a technology company, but in my free time I ride practically everything with two wheels.
I started riding bicycles when I was a kid like everyone else. I started riding BMX pretty much when it was invented and then moved on to riding road bikes and mountain bikes. I raced BMX and downhill mountain bikes before I really got into motorcycles. I still ride road bikes and mountain bikes today, I just don't race them anymore.
I started riding motorcycles in my late 20s when I got my first street bike (Ninja 600R). I started doing track days in 1999 and did my first road race as a novice with WSMC at Willow Springs in 2000.
I've worked as a riding coach and instructor for almost as long as I have been racing. I started working for Keith Code and the California Superbike School as an on-track coach. I worked for CSS for about 10 years, of which I worked for them full time for about 7 years. I currently coach for SoCal Supermoto, Racers Edge, Track Daz and I'm the New Racer School instructor for the local road race club, CVMA.
As I said I pretty much ride anything with two wheels. I commute to work pretty much every day on my Kawasaki Concours. I race a Yamaha R6 with CVMA. I ride and race a YZ450F supermoto and a CRF150R minimoto. I also have a YZ450F that I ride at the local motocross tracks. I've even tried my hand at trials riding on a GasGas, flat track at Perris, and speedway at Costa Mesa.
This website was really created as a way for me to publish videos about various motorcycles. I'm going to start posting regularly to my YouTube Channel, probably about once a month to start.
I'll be posting videos about what it is like to ride some pretty cool bikes. I'm going to try to post about bikes not everyone would get a chance to ride and tell everyone about the bike and what it is like to ride it.
I'll post about all different kinds of interesting bikes. I like sportbikes, supermotos and minimotos so that will probably be the focus of the channel, but I'm sure there will be videos of all sorts of bikes as time permits.
