Hi there, I've recently returned to riding after nearly 10 yrs without a bike. I started out yrs ago on a 2 stroke rz250 which was a fun little bike. I had that for a couple of years and then had to get rid of it due to being on an apprentice wage, it was either the car or the bike which had to go. Then I went and got all responsible and shit and bought a house, got married and became a dad twice. So after years of wasting far too much money on cars I decided it was time to get a bike again. I ended up swapping my 2nd car(money pit) for an 03 gsxr1000, which I've had now for about 5 months and am absolutely loving it. I'm usually good for a weekday blast on the bike due to having to work most weekends. I'm keen as to do a trackday but just need to get a bit more gear before I'm ready. Anyway, that's about all for now. I'm gonna spend the next few hours reading through this forum. Cheers, Pucko.
