  1. Hey just found this site as i am looking for people to go riding with.

    Ive been riding for 2 years now and am onto my third bike.

    First bike was the Suzuki GSX250F Across, great little bike and loved the storage compartment but wasnt fast enough.

    Currently being rebuilt.

    So i decided to upgrade while i was on my P's and got a brand new Hyosung GT650R, 2 months later i got it derestricted and about a month after that i wrote it off on Putty Rd :cry: , i put a tinted screen on it and a staintune exhaust, you could tell the build quality wasnt there but on a restricted license i still think it was the way to go.

    The corner i crashed on, as you can see the front end was a bit bent and was a instant write-off

    Ive always been a Suzuki fan but when it came time to find another bike the ZX9R just happened to be the sort of thing i was after in the right price bracket and after taking a couple for a ride i was sold.
