    IMG_4880.JPG Hi guys, I'm a 57 yr old adolescent, had a fair few bikes over 40 years and been doing track days for 17 years (with a fair few falls and injuries!). Ridden all sorts on track, R1's, R6's, GSXR1000, 750 and 600's, Kawasaki 636's and most recently an S1000RR but I've just come late to the party with the mighty Blade so I want to learn a lot more about them from y'all.
    I think my paint scheme is unique, not seen another one like it, I started with white fairings and orange wheels, so where do you go with orange wheels? Didn't want a Repsol as they're everywhere, so I based it on the red/white/blue SP stripes but just orange black (obviously).

    Coincidentally, (and it never affected my bike buying decisions) I work for Honda car manufacturing in Swindon, I am 'brainwashed' with all the philosophies of the great man himself Soichiro Honda, I get it, I understand what makes them as great and reliable as they are! I've been lucky to go to Japan and see the Honda Collection (Honda museum at the Motegi track), was bonkers awesome!
    Looking forward to having some banter and exchanging stories, experiences and general Bullshit!
    I'm on Facebook groups like Trackday Addicts etc (like I'm sure a lot of you are) but totally new to 'forums' so please be patient if any posts are incorrect or 'foolhardy' Cheers chaps
