    Default Droppin' in from Romulus!

    Hello folks,

    Just found my way to the site and glad to see that there are a lot of people here trying to distract themselves from the snow and rider un-friendly weather!


    I'm a mechanical engineer, working mostly with performance cars, and decided on a whim to scoop up a 2009 Ninja 250r. I've been bitten by the bug and now have a Suzuki GSX-R600 that I pretty much rebuilt from the frame up as a project. I'm thinking the next one will be a cruiser just to keep sampling all the different types!

    I look forward to coming around here often until the snow melts to talk bikes!

    Hey...welcome.

    Good to see another gear head. I love anything that takes petro and makes horsepower.

    The old 250R (which I really miss!):


    The 2006 Suzuki GSX-R600 project: watch it grow!










    Half the fun was in the build, now i'm bored again! ...never satisfied!

    Welcome to the forums! You'll fit right in! I started on a 250, got a GSXR750 for a track bike, sold the 250, got a FZR600 to ride on the street, got rid of the FZR and GSXR and got a Vulcan 800, got rid of the Vulcan and am on a FZ1 that I'm trying to sell right now. hahaha I change bikes more than underwear.

    Man, your 600 looks almost exactly like the one I had stolen -_-

    Welcome to the site
    You might be like, I'm confused, what's the attraction?
    But some dudes just love to lose traction.

    Like any club that has grown too large, [motorcycling] has become mired in vacuous debates and split into a thousand splinter factions. Older riders hate squids; cruisers hate sport riders; Harley riders hate everyone, including themselves.
