Hi from the UK

Just got my self a lovely SP2, I've been promising my self one for a long time but it had to be in very good condition so when this one turned up on ebay after some persuading the misses I bit the bullet.

Bike was delivered to me yesterday at work then rode it home after. Love it, such an awesome bike just to sit and stare at let alone ride. Well chuffed.

Looking for information on the VTR's and hoping to to join in with some conversations and banter and generally meet like minded bikers.

Live in the UK, work for a Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki dealer as the Aftersales manager. Also have a 2012 Blade a RVF400RR and a CBF500 I use daily for work and the wife has a CBR125R.

Cheers all.
