I finally decided to drop in and say hi Long time reader - first time poster. I've been riding the cbr250 for bloody years now (I've lost count). I've always dreamed of getting an old '89 gsxr 750 but money is always the limiting factor these days. Trying to save up for my first home by myself. sucks balls >_< I hope to be finished rebuilding my cbr soon, to be ready for summer. Weather is perfect these days, so I'm kicking myself each day I do nothing lol. Wish I had a mate to help sometimes as it gets majorly tedious going at it alone - I'm sick of it these days lol. I'm getting mighty pissed at painting my tank + wheels and plating heaps of nuts and bolts. Damn you, Murphys' law!!!! Once she's all done and dusted, I'm heaps keen to go out on ride days for something different. I've only ever ridden solo... so should be fun to meet new riders. I'm currently living out blacktown/mt druitt area (Sydney, NSW) (lucky my suburb isn't in a crime hotspot lol), so if anyone wants to give me a kick up the arse for some motivation, wear your heaviest steel capped boots! lol I've been dealing with a few nasty bouts of depression lately, which has kept me out of the shed for a few months... I never really used to think much of that stuff before but it has changed my outlook on things, somewhat, so I am sure there are lessons to be learned. Maximum respect to those who've been down that path before! I guess its all a life lesson at the end of the day. Anyway, happy to finally say hi on the forums. I'll be glad to post up some pics of my build when she's done... whenever that may be lol Peace!
