I'm not sure if 51 counts as 'mid life' these days, but here I am. Riding a Ninja 650 L. Being long term into performance cars, I thought this was going to be just a weekend thing, but the bug has bitten badly and I'm riding everywhere. Apart from wishing I had eyes in the back of my head and that I'd started this about 30 years ago, all is going well. Have booked in for my MOST session next week, so I'm hoping to get out to Homebush on Saturday to get some advice from anyone kind enough to offer it. Particularly the cone weave, which still looks a little daunting... See you all around the forums, and the road.
