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:

Ooh, I recognise that name and avatar. UK VTR forum or Fireblades?

Thanks for the welcome.

@nigelrb - Yup, from the Fireblades site as well. That '11 'blade of yours must be a blast; I remember my old '11 quite well.

I haven't had a 2011 for ages!! Certainly was a great bike though, and served as my re-introduction to big bikes.
