After much anticipation, Keith Little has signed with Kawasaki for 2008. "It’s pretty much set in stone now," Keith said today. "So I’m getting pretty excited. I go out to California on December first to start testing and I'm looking forward to it. That will be my first time on the bike."

In 2007, Keith competed in five rounds of the AMA Pro ATV series, where he had two second place finishes. "I’ve worked really hard doing a lot of driving and putting bikes together and all that," he said. "I’m glad that I’ll be able to slack back on that stuff and start focusing more on riding and practicing."

Keith will also have a full-time mechanic for the first time at his home in Alabama. "My mechanic is going to be here by me, so we’ll probably end up bringing the race bike home," Keith continued. "That way my mechanic can prep it, and it will be here at my house if I want to ride or try anything out on the race bike."

Look for Keith at the opening round of the 2008 ATVA/AMA Pro ATV series in Glen Helen, California. Don't forget to tell him, "Congratulations!"
