Late forties, biker wannabe!
Grew up in the UK.
Lived, breathed and slept bikes in my teens and early twenties. Wife, kids, work and finances stopped play! Kids now grown up and leaving home so planning to get back in the saddle as soon as finances allow.
Grew up on small jap two strokes where tear down and rebuild each weekend was the norm. 'Personalization' more than customization was the rule.
Raced for three years 89-92, low level stuff. Two years of Earlystocks on a Suzuki X7, final year on a Camier Rotax 500 in single cylinder. All spannering done by me. Competent at mechanicals and electricals, enthusiastic but not gifted at fabrication. Big accident mid 92 season coinciding with having kids ended my racing days.
Moved to Norway 2000-2006 and again in 2011 to date, planning on staying this time.
Just north of Oslo, Norway
M/Cs, Classic Brit cars, Astronomy, SciFi.
Software Engineer, real world stuff, mainly aerospace related (not IT, I dont fix PCs)
