I almost bought a Ninja 600 when I was 20. Glad I didn't because I'd probably be dead now.

Same here.
Dad ended up letting me run the MX for a few years until the wreck but no way were they going to let me ride a "Crotch Rocket" :confused2

Exactly why my mom did not let me buy one at 16. I had the cash and everything.

Not yet.........but after a 15 yr break from bikes, I bought the Busa. So at 47(now), I'm playing catchup. And everything I rode before was more a cruiser, around town and maybe short trips usually less than 150 miles.........NEVER on a track of any kind.

It's a "good news / bad news" thing: Very easy to spot me, but also really hard for me to claim ignorance to bone-headed on-track maneuvers!

i do know i have an addiction. im not afraid to admit that. my name is Noctem, and i am an addict. can anyone point me in the direction of professional racing? i know i have alot of work to do, but only a lack of gas, tires and brakes can stop me. maybe ive found something i can be. so point me in the correct direction.
