re-newed newb

OK, So... I read through the rules and hopefully i did not miss something. I contemplated dragging up my old intro thread but decided against it.

I have been a member here on CLSB since about 2006, over the past few days of reading over the boards i have been delighted to see some familiar names still actively abusing the boards and saddened at the loss of others ;(.

after a much longer break from riding(Divorce, Yay!), and CLSB(too Jealous of my lack in riding) then anticipated... I am finally back.

I did not get a chance to meet or ride with very many people back when i was semi-active here in the past but hopefully this time around that will change.

Brief riding history:
First bike: Thunderstrucks - 94 zx-7 - rode it for 1 1/2 seasons and about 4500 miles.
Second Bike: 2008 Yamaha YZF-R6 - rode it for 2 seasons and about 6000 miles before divorce required it to be... gone.
Third Bike: 2012 Yamaha YZF-R6 - Just picked it up April 20th from the dealer, already 450+ miles.

I live in Pingree Grove (Elgin, LITH, Huntley, Algonquin area) and work in Rosemont area... always looking to ride work, weather and children permitting.

Hit me up if you are in the area, or not in the area... I'm not afraid to travel. lol

Welcome back! Keep the flat 4 in mind. We have one coming up in early June.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.
