Here for all the mods...

I'm originally from the UK, now living in Minnesota, USA. In the market for a low mile 05/06 that I am going to mod. I also have an early Z1, modded Z900RS, a 50th R1 and a zero mile Repsol 05 CBR1000RR (just bought).

I was active on the ZRXOA form for quite a while and my ZRX won 2016 BOTY. A lot of great custom parts suppliers on there and friendly members which is what attracted me to this Forum. A lot of the Forums are not as active as they used to be, but I have seen some amazing bikes on here which is inspiring. TBH I enjoy working on bikes more than riding them these days, though I am hoping to do some classic track days on the RC51 in 4-5 years when we retire to the UK (RC51 should be classic status by then).

Below a couple of pics of my bikes: the ZRX (sold). Also I had a set of new Brembo M4s I got cheap on eBay. Was thinking about what to do with them and ended up buying a Z900RS and, as usual, got carried away modding it. I liked the color of the Nitron shock spring I put on it so sent the bodywork to the UK to be custom painted to match the shock.

I feel a bit of a connection to this Forum since I raced against a few well known riders back in the 70s in the UK who later became factory Honda riders: Joey Dunlop, Ron Haslam, Carl Fogarty and Robert Dunlop. I also used to race TZ750s around the IOM which was an experience.

Anyway looking to get to work soon on an RC51 and thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers, Don

Welcome to the forum. The forum used to be very active but has since died down....not too sure why. Probably has something to do with other social media sites etc which are taking over for the forums.

Those are some really nice bikes you have there and you sound like you've got some amazing stories to share. I met Carl Fogarty a few years back and he was a really nice guy.

Have some pictures of your racing days around the IOM? Would love to see those. I'd love to make it out there one day, but i'm afraid if i visit I will never leave. Seems like a beautiful Island with lots of history and motorcycles......everything i need.
