Member Info: Have had Numerous Bikes in my Time, started on an 86 Suzuki GSX250S then progressed to an Suzuki GSX750ES at the Same time I got hold of a Pop up Katana which I restored, I had a big crash on that and was off the road for a year, I sold my GSX750 to a mate as I couldnt stand not being able to ride her. After a long recovery I got into a 94 Kawasaki ZXR750R M3 with 6.5K on the Clock - Dianese GTR Leathers and Gloves and Dianese KC Boots - things couldnt have been better, 2 years later I got Married then had kids I bought a 87 Suzuki NV250 for my partner to ride, something she really didnt want to do, but I had fun on it, as did a lot of my mates, both my children as babies enjoyed riding around with me in the back yard on it. I sold her and bought a Honda V65 Sabre with big arse fairings - my god you say why would you buy one of those - well it has two seats my ZXR doesnt - its a mobile couch with an 1100cc V4 pushing and man so easy to load up and go to the Motorcycle rallies. I fitted a Micron Carbon Fibre end can to the ZXR and a K&N filter at around 20K, a mate left for Australia and he left me his 86 GSX550EF to look after - Full fairing like new - so I bought it. I was 29 when my best mate who was also 29 died of a heart attack - rides without him for me and the boys just arent the same - he left me his 93 Ducati 900SS which he looked after so well, so I sold my Honda with much regret - we had seen some good times and she was so reliable - I turned away a few buyers because I just knew they were wankers who didnt really care as much as I would - I sold it to a 6ft woman her hubby owned a ZZR1100 and I could tell she just loved the bike and would look after it. I bought a little 50cc Honda Trail bike for my son when he was 4, fox decals and big red number 4 on it, fox boots which were to big and armour (the works) took to it like a blow fly to a dead body, still rides now, we de-restirced it and hes was to fearless for his own good, I myself cained the little bike which I managed to get just under 80kph out of next to my mates car - I have dropped it in a horse paddock as well, spent the rest of the holiday with concusion. In 2003 I traded my ZXR750M3 and the Ducati on a Brand new Kawasaki ZX12R which I still own, it is no longer standard running a 1410cc Muzzy kit with carbon & stainless muzzy system, power comander 3r, DNA filter, Muzzy timing advancer and reid valve emissions block off plates, loads of carbon fibre parts and pumps out 209Hp rear wheel. In 2007 - my eldest son 10 rides a Yamaha YZ250F trail, my 6 year old rides a CRF150 Honda, they also share a 110cc Mini Chopper I did some customising to. I have a 95 KLX650 and a Yamaha Raptor 700cc Injected to park next to the ZX12R, am looking to add a Suzuki M109R to the stable at some point, want to do a custom job on the M109R.
