    Hey there lads & lassies.

    Lad here from Limerick ROI. Biking history:

    First bike @ 16 year old:
    Suzuki RG80 - Crashed that after 3 months. Big break after that & didn't get back onto a bike till I got married & had kids @ 31

    Got meself a new FZR600 in 2004
    Swapped that for a Honda X11 in 2006
    Had that for 5 years & gave up biking for 3 years after mate got killed.

    Back biking in 2014 with a VFR800
    Traded in for a 08 CBR1000RR in 2015

    Bought a new GSXR1000 in 2016
    Traded her in for a new Africa Twin in 2018

    Did 2 Euro trips on the Twin & covered 28k klm over 20 months & traded her back for my current 2014 CBR100RR Repsol with 12k klms (7.5k miles)

    Good to be back. As you can see...I'm a Honda fan.

    Hi and welcome to a member from the famed 'second' home of Frank McCourt.

    Nice set of bikes (except the Suzuki;)). I am a particular fan of Black and Yellow - brings out the extrovert in me.

    Going to get myself an Africa Twin when I get old!:D
