saying hello.

Hi everyone . Newbie here doing the decent thing and saying hello before i raid your archives for info and drive you all mad looking for free advice on how to fix and sort my bike(s).
Ive been riding for 35years and ride everyday of the year unless im on holiday or in hospital . Ive been a dispatch rider , both long distance and city work and for the last few years i raced around the UK's circuits with the classsic racing motorcycle club (crmc) where ive won some silverwear. My current collection consists of ;
a 3 wheeled tilting honda nv50 stream scooter
aprilia rs125 cafe racer
honda rs125 race bike (1986)
one off kx500 streetfighter
aprilia rs125 fitted with maico 620 engine
honda vtr 1000 firestorm (superhawk?)
guzzi 1100 sport inj cafe racer
and my beloved gsxr1100j slabby - which is my daily ride.
The slabby was bought 10 years ago as a non-runner for £400 , served me well for 2 years then broke down. Unable to fix it at the time i winched it up a tree for safe keeping where it hung for 7 years until the worlds most unreliable bike (my guzzi) broke again and i had another go at fixing the gixxer. This time she fired up and ive now enjoyed a year of slabby fun but its time to treat the old girl and fix all those bits held together with cable ties , time to stop bump starting it , time to keep all four cylinders working , time to get it past 7000rpm. Im gonna need alot of help !

Re: saying hello.

Welcome. Interesting collection you have there and great first post! Post pics of the bikes when you can. You have some gems in there that'll make for good conversation.

I had a go at posting some pics but didn't get very far , eventually I got a message saying the (phone) pics were too large but I don't know how to reduce them on my phone. I can't help it I'm old. It's a Moto g 5 - any ideas ?
