Unlike many of my sportbike-riding brethren I grew up riding horses not dirt bikes and had never even sat as a passenger on a motorcycle before taking the MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) training course in early 2009. My ascension in to the world of motor sports began with a 1991 Honda CRX Si and learning to drive a manual transmission. From there came the turbo kit, motor swap, suspension upgrades, more aftermarket parts, a handful of speeding tickets, and some tough decisions. After a brief hiatus from the Honda game, I traded the highly modified, 300 horsepower CRX (approximately 3x stock) for a low-mileage and lightly modified 2004 Suzuki GSXR 750 in 2009. The GSXR is now has quite a bit more miles and is a few years older but is still a thrill none the less.
Based in a coastal metropolitan area of Florida most of my riding is in the form of either city commuting or short jaunts through nearby backwoods areas if you could call it that. Though, I have been known to take a brief touring ride to nearby states.
