  1. Hi All,
    I have always loved motorcycles and after a long long gap of 20 years I'm back in the saddle and wish I had done it years ago. Why did I go back? not sure really, maybe it was the joy of riding and the challenge to improve my skills everyday.

    After leaving the UK almost 20 years again where I was riding 2-strokes and had long hair and a stupid grin every day, but those days of being reckless and stupid, very stupid have gone and have a Suzuki GSX650F, which I love... big and stable with plenty of power for when I need it, and the seat is big enough for my fat arse.

    Looking forward to hearing stories and gaining tips on bits and pieces.

    Thanks for reading this... and take care.

    Aged 44 and a half.
