Candice and Jesse
Candice Griffin & Jesse Short are a 2up dynamo. Jesse has been riding off-road since birth (basically) and so of course he roped his adrenaline junky partner in crime into his passion. They started riding 2up on a KTM 500 EXC during the Baby Burr Dual Sport and never looked back. Individually, they ride the trails with Jesse on his KTM300EXC and Candice on her beloved KDX200, but they love pushing their skills doing technical off road 2up (now on a DR650 heavily farkled for their 2up antics). With their combined passion, they started @kooxmoto, a moto adventure tour company in Yucatan and Chiapas, taking tourists to mayan ruins, waterfalls, and more with great riding between destinations. They spend their summers hanging out in the amazing moto community in the states (really, is there a better community than moto?!) and riding two up has brought them closer than your average couple. You can catch them at rallies as far west as Colorado and as far east as Vermont this year! Also, they're still looking for more 2up competitors for the hill climb at STRSS... any challengers out there??
