Newbie from UK
Hi all. Just fell across this forum and have already noted a couple of familiar names!!
So, I'm Nigel from West Midlands in England.
I bought my first bike at 17-years-old, a brand new Honda CB 175 in gold/white. Had it for only twelve months before 'graduating' to the then new Honda CB 750 K1. Some two years' later I transformed it to a racing bike. Obtained quite a few factory parts and ran the bike on the then legal Methanol and Castrol R.
After marriage and family I bought a new VF 750 in 1984, but it became the victim of a divorce battle. Stayed away from bikes for a few years.
Two years ago I had a hankering to re-mount! Bought an as new CBR250R which served as a great reintroduction. It also made me realise what I had missed. A few months later (November 2017) I traded up to a 2011 Fireblade in HRC livery.
I have since acquired some nice bikes, most recently a 2002 VTR SP-2. I look forward to participating on here.
Not showing off, but a few of my collection:
