Riding history: My 1st bike was a Honda MT50, i put a performance exhaust and 80cc kit on it after losing a race with a tractor. I've had a Suzuki AP50, Kawasaki KR1s, ZZR600, ZXR750, Yamaha 350lc, RU 1000exup. My 1st track day was in 1994 at Snetterton on a ZXR750 road bike. My 1st track bike was a Kawasaki zx600, followed by a CBR1000rr, a Yamaha R6 13s, my current bike is a 2014 ZX10r. I only ride on the track now as riding on the road doesn't bother me anymore.
First racing hero: Rocket Ron Haslam
Biggest riding influence: The need for the adrenaline rush. (Fun factor)
Favourite circuit: Cadwell Park
Best biking moment: collecting my ZXR750 when it was brand new and my pride and joy at the time. It's the bike I'd like to find and buy back.
