Experience: 1-3 months

Bike(s):
06' GSX-R 1000









I first learned on an 02 929 when I was 18, about 6 years ago. I had the bike for only a month. I bought my very first bike and began riding it on 03/15/2011.

So, that would be around 638 days ago, or 91 weeks, or 1 year, 8 months, and 27 days from today.

In march, it will be about 2 years of seat time + riding legally.

The bike had 14k on the clock when I picked it up, it's now going on 32k. I took my first spill on the street on 10-17-2012. Began riding again on 11/17/2012.

I've done a total 5 or 6 track-days, all have been this year.

My other bike is an 05 Honda CRF50

Then we'd all sit around the local quarry wearing our Joe Rock jackets lookin cool. We didn't even know what horsepower meant, but we didn't care. We had fun. Ya know, ya didn't even need gas back in those days, but the steeper the hill - the more fun it was. Whiny riders today hafta have all that extra nonsense like gas and engines. The true spirit of the biker has been lost.

Been on 2 since the summer of 69.

Id go by Miles/hours ridden. I know guys who been "riding" for 20 years. Which means they ridden to the bar once a month and put 100 miles on. Miles between all my bikes in 5 years is over 100k easily.

Not counting Dirtbike/ATV/SNowmobile years either.
