Hello everyone.* Was told this was a pretty diverse site and should check it out.*

I currently ride a 1998 Kawasaki ZX7R and have a 2005 Honda CRF50 I play on and I am currently using to pass the two wheel bug onto the 5 boys in our house....* I can only hope I am as successful as my father was in passing the torch.* I've been around bikes my whole life and enjoy nothing more than meeting new people to ride with down clean twisty roads and finding a destination to enjoy cold beverages and rejoice in some bench racing!!

Below are just a few of the bikes and moments that have made me, me!

A huge welcome to ya Kaw boy, fantastic pics ya shared of the choppers and the Boss Hog there. The ZX7R is a great bike, and ahead of its time when it came out. Looking forward to ridin with ya bro.

The choppers and touring the US is how I grew up.....* Cafe' bike riding just became the NEW thing...* Being a Gen Xer, the thrill of "SQUIDly" back road antics was hard to ignore...* No rhyme or reason on choosing the ZX7....* It was just the bike I found....* Great bike I agree, but extremely underpowered and heavy compared to modern middle weight bikes...* Current plans are to murder out the 7 and make it a serious bar hopping street fighter and find myself a 03-06 ZX636 for a track/road bike...

As soon as I get a feel for the forum and whom will cry "SQUID" I'll post my videos from summer riding....

Thanks to all who have sent thier welcomes and to those who do later...* Seems like a GREAT and VERY DIVERSE board...* Navigation seems a bit tricky compared to what I'm used to.... ???

Some member here may already know me from DSB, WOS, MWRF, or ZX-7R Forum...* Looking forward to meeting more of you!!

Here's some more pics for a good laugh!!* Yes, 3.1 hp CAN kick your ass!!* :D
