My passion for two wheels started a little over three years ago when I got some friends together and did the CBT as a day out kinda thing. I really enjoyed being on that CG125 and decided to some day have a motorcycle of my own. A year later, I had some time off work and some spare cash so, with no experience other than that CBT, went for a fresh CBT and a 4-day Direct Access to successfully unlock the motorcycle world in its entirety in one fell swoop.
About a month afterwards, while browsing motorcycles, I decided to have a look at a blue/white K6 GSX-R1000 for sale in Wembley. Wasn't seriously thinking on buying it, just wanted to see what it's like.
The bike was all original save for the windshield, and appeared to be in an almost scratchless condition. But most of all, the sexiness of this bike is what pulled me in. I bought it there and then, with no test ride: the dealer wouldn't let me ride it, with the lack of any riding experience, and I was convinced the bike was in great condition.
Two and a half years later, I'm loving riding my bike more and more each day. She's in need of some mechanical attention at the moment, but I've put 8000 miles on her and been to some beautiful places. I absolutely love my GSX-R.
A pleasure to meet you all!
