Member Info: First thing i ever rode was a Honda step through 50 scooter use to take it on bush Motor Cross tacks was 9 years old at the time was a great machine till i went over the handle bars in soft sand while trying to race an ataljet 50 from there had Yamaha off road bikes till i could get a liecince . Fist road bike was a kawasaki Z650 witch made made me fall in love with the big K for a 650 the performance was great and the handling fanstastic brakes not so good i blew the motor up running it dry of oil from having a dirty inspection widow no dip stick on that model the scary part was it happening at 110 kmh . So next it was the ZR1 1000 great acelleration scary breaks and no handling only nearly killed myself 3 times on that one worst one was racing against a Two stroke on a twisty back road when out of the blue someone put a red stoplight at the end of the road slid into the side of a mazda MX5 but a least i won also won a big bill . After that it was time to get a bike that handles witch so has been my only Suzuki road bike a GSX750EFE was a great bike good for twistys and touring to my regret i found out the hard way never ride at night in remote parts of Australia i hit a Kangaroo at 110KMH and screwed it smashed fairing head light the magneto was rubb away bye the bituem when the side cover was torn off put me off riding for a while everytime i saw a animal on the side of the road i would think it would run at me . After fixing the Suzy up trader her on a Kawasaki ZXR750 best handling bike i every had with speed to match handle like a train the front always felt sure of where it was going with the thirst for speed my next bike had to be a ZZR1100 the acceleration was like being launch off an aircraft carrier 200KMH was only a twist of the wrist away not good on suburban highways .In 12 months i lost 11 points off my liecence I could be being overtaken by a courier van and the cops would still pull me over this bike was a laser gun magnet 1 point away from losing my liecence i sold her and had a break from bikes for 2 years to let the points get back up . Still in love with Kawasaki it was time to get another this time a 1995 ZX9R worst kawaka i every had shit handling spongy brakes felt top heavy thought i was having a flashback to the Z1000 only rode it 6 times in 2 years .By now i have 3 children and was hitting my late thirtys on the last ride of the ZX9R i got airbounre at 220KMH when the road dipped and then came up it was like riding in zero G`s my mate in front of me must have been doin 240KMH do not know how i survived that one so to save my kids the furture pain i sold it with in a week the tempation of speeding is to great . 2 years went by with out a bike but i missed riding so much it was time for something else by now im 40 with all the aches and pains rule out a sports bike enter my Honda Shadow 750ACE i wont win any races but its so comfortable and hard to get a speeding ticket on plus all the bling you can put on these things is great Vance & Hinzes pipes stop it getting called a postmans bike. Well i did win one race against a Norton a 110 kmh never felt so scary with wallowing suspension and drum brakes on the back did not win by much but it was exciting .Had to sell the Shadow when some scum bag stole my car for going to work in funny thing was the day after I sold it the cops ring up and said they found it . for some radom reason while i had the Shadow i got a DT400F which i won on eBay i have been dreaming of getting it back on the road for 2 years i would ride it around the back yard or just start it and warm it up till i thought the neibours where pissed 2 strokes luv the noise and smell .Have been riding it on bush tracks and some crude moto x tracks luv it power band oh la la makes me want a 2 stoke moto x or a Yamaha TTR600 lets see what happens .
