Its been about 15 years since i've ridden road bikes. I sold my 1986 GSXR1100 back then because I recognised a certain lack of commonsense in myself that was going to lead to disaster. Anyways, over the years I think I have matured and realise i'm not invincible and have been thinking lots about getting a road bike again. I snagged this 1996 YZF1000R Thunderace 2 weeks ago and love it. Its taking a bit of getting used to but i'm stoked all the same.
