One of the most loyal riders in the history of moto Travis Pastrana says he was pretty much forced to switch from Suzuki to KTM. “Huge thanks to the man himself, Roger Decoster, along with Ian Harrison and Ryan Morais for helping me with some new 250cc 2 strokes,” Travis said from Instagram today. “I’ve practically bled yellow for the past 28 years and I’m thankful for every day with Suzuki. But with RM 250’s being discontinued close to 15 years ago, it’s been getting harder and harder to find bikes and parts. It was time for me to either go 4-Stroke or switch colors.”
