  1. Hey guys and gals. figured id intro myself.
    Im jesse, late 20's long time in love with bikes but never made the jump to get one untill recently. Bought myself a ZXR250 fixer-upper thats actually in pretty awesome condition mechanically, just getting a fuel system flush atm (old tank had rust and fcuked the system... new tank in though)
    Ill be keen to ride anywhere at anytime. recently left my job due to stress so i have a load of free time over summer. sat my learners ASAP with no experience, apart from jumping on a crappy GS125 for about 10 mins, and then about another 20 mins on the ZXR when i bought it.
    i love racing, and love the MotoGP and WSBK. keen to get into the ASBK next year too (watchnig)
    once i learn how to not be shit, i want to race as well. will start out with cali superbike school and track days for a while, though
    im hugely into old school jap cars (hence my interest in 80s/early 90s jap bikes) so i run a club for them as well.
    you can find me on Facebook under Jesse Risk/Sparklemotion
