Biography:
My name is Clint, I'm from Dallas, Tx, and I seem to like anything with wheels. I have a six year old daughter named Isabella that seems to like clothes more than wheels. Oh well. I inherited the motorcycle and car trait from my father. He taught me how to ride in our backyard with an early 70s model yamaha mx 80. He would tie a rope around my waist and run behind me. After id get it out of first gear, if things got a little sketchy he'd pull me off so the bike wouldn't fall on me. I don't know if it was the best introduction to motor cycles, but i had on boots, jeans, and a helmet, so I think his head was in the right place. I was never able to race motocross when I was young, only due to how expensive it was. High school I had two mustangs that I would street race or take to the track. After i could personally afford motorcycles and gear, i raced in east texas as an amateur for a number of years For fun and practice, me and my group of motocross buds would ride different tracks all throughout texas. When I was nineteen I purchased my first street bike, 2003 Suzuki GSXR-600. Absolutely loved the bike. After about 6 months I wish I had gotten the 750, but the bike served its purpose. I kept it completely stock, and never laid it down (surprisingly). Prior to my daughter being born i sold my two dirt bikes (05 ktm 125 SX and 05 KX 250), my pit bike(03xr50), and even my beloved moto van. Since then I've turned to bicycles and inline speed skating to find my thrill for speed and competition. They are somewhat cheaper, but like with any hobby or passion, you can spend as much as you want. My dad still rides to this day, and I moto when i can with friends if theres an extra bike. Dad's daily driver is an 02 kawasaki ZRX1200R, which I drive on the occasion when I need my motorcycle fix.
Any questions, please ask.

    Yup you know what I'm talking about! And technically, it runs. I just refuse to put it on the streets without a muffler..... I may look like a douche, however I'm not actually a douche.

    Very cool bike. It looks like you're wanting to go in the same route as i did with my little BSA. All ive done different is add clip ons and rear sets, everything else is in pretty much stock trim....
