    once upon a time, in 1980 (when i was 10) my uncle John (RIP) had a Kawasaki GPZ1100 -
    he was always a bit of a rebel - and one evening around my nan and grandad's he asked if I wanted to go for a ride ....

    He took me on a ride around crystal palace (before speed cameras were invented) he stopped halfway as we were about to hit a long winding road and told me to stop holding him and to hold the back bar 
    - he said "this is the road my mate died on" ..I clinged on for dear life ... and i think we may have hit a ton ...

    When we got back I can remember my hands were freezing - he took my helmet off and with a cheeky grin asked me "do you want to do that again?" (expecting me to be shitting my pants)

    I said - YEAH !!!! - at that moment I knew I was destined to be a biker !

    1 week before my 16th birthday my dad got me a suzuki ts50 ER .. 
    (most of my mates had a bit more money than us and they had the Suzuki X or a DT)
    I cleaned it and started it everyday that week until I was road legal !!

    at 17 i stepped up to a Suzuki TS125 X ... with my first job and bank account 
    the most important things in my life were my helmet, bike keys and cash-point card 
    We used to ride to Brighton just to get a bag of chips !

    I had a whole succession of 125's from there (the DT125 ypvs was probably the best)
    then i got a KMX200 and put 125 stickers on - and after that my CRM250 - again with 125 stickers ...

    There were times in my life where things were a bit tough ... but getting on my bike and riding made me feel alive / sane .....

    eventually I moved to wales, passed my test and met you guys...
    Simon was in fact the first person I met - in my leather jacket and Nike boots - he asked "is this your first ride?" Razz

    and Joss was on that ride that day and he hung out with me (i had tobacco in my pocket)

    so to finish off .. there is a point to my story ....
    I will never lose the loving feeling ... In fact this is my biker song ....

    Bryan adams - run to you...
    when he wrote this song his wife thought he was having an affair ... but actually he wrote the song about his guitar 

    to me the lyrics ring true about my bike 

    "AND WHEN IT GETS TOO MUCH - I NEED TO FEEL YOUR CLUTCH - IM GONNA RUN TO YOU"

    yes thats true - I must have looked like a right weirdo..... Walking up to people and introducing myself and shaking their hands, before I then stalk them on the internet .... seems its the other way round these days.
