Thread: About you

Welcome to all the new folks, good to have you aboard
Wim, Xavier Simeon in particular is looking really good this year in Superstock 1000, he won the last race and lies third in the championship. I think it's his first year there too which is very promising - could be one to move into WSB within a couple of years. Not sure how much coverage of that championship you have but it's worth a look."Of course, what many people tend to forget is that Glen Richards was 2nd in the 1993 Australian 125cc championship" - Jack Burnicle on BSB at Snetterton, June 2008

Crikey, it's been a while since there was any activity in here.
As usual, I guess we're too busy enjoying the racing.
Any lurkers, feel free to introduce yourselves - you're in the right place!"Of course, what many people tend to forget is that Glen Richards was 2nd in the 1993 Australian 125cc championship" - Jack Burnicle on BSB at Snetterton, June 2008

Hey, everybody. My name is Bill. I'm 47, but I neither look, act nor feel my age, so you won't hear an "AAAAAGH" from me. I'm generally more into motorsports of the 4-wheel variety, because I grew up in a "car" family (i.e. my dad worked at Ford). Lately, tho, thanks to some friends & relatives, I have had the opportunity to attend a couple AMA SB races in Daytona , so I'm developing an interest in motorcycles. A definite interest.
Of course, since I don't have any relatives who work for a motorcycle manufacturer, deciding who my favorite driver/team is has taken on an entirely new dimension for me. And this is a good thingPlasma tv's are okay, but I'm holding out for whole blood.

Age only really matters if you are a cheese or a wine, to my mind anyway

Nice to see some activity in here.
Welcome Bill and congrats on finding motorcycle racing. It shouldn't take you too long to realise it's the greatest sport on the planet!
While we're at it, I don't think you've posted anything bout yourself in here Roby. And no, Italian, age 28 etc won't be accepted!

Thought I'd come back and meet a few of our newer members... hello all.
My third child arrived since I was last in this topic, she's now 11 months
I'm commuting between Sydney and Sunshine Coast on a weekly basis... Fly to Sydney Mon morning, fly back north Fri night. When in Syd I stay with my brother, 1.5hrs by train from the CBD where I work, and when at home I'm Mr Mum all weekend. So I don't have a lot of free time these days! But hopefully I'll be permanently out of Sydney within the next month or so... and in case I didn't mention it a year or so ago, I'm 39 (ARRRGGGH!)Phantom... Bike Who Parks

Hi all, my forum name is maxu05, but my name is John.
I am a big Kawasaki fan, though, they have given me little to cheer about in racing, they make some of the finest road (and dirt) bikes on the planet. I have been in China for 7 years, and have just moved, (6 months ago) back to OZ, though, I have moved to the wild west of Western Australia. I am married to Luodanfox, also a forum member, and I am waitng for her immigration to go through. I talk to her every day at the moment, via phone and it is costing me a mint to call China every day, (it's worth it though).
I like watching Motogp,WSBK, WSS, V8 Supercars and most forms of motorsport. My other interests are animals, watching Doco's and Sci Fi flicks, playing with cars and bikes, (the ones you don't have to pedal), PS2 and PS3, cooking, and my latest interest is gardening I am learning more about gardening, so I can grow my own veggies and herbs, so that I don't have to put up with the rubbish that they sell in the supermarkets, at extremely high prices. I am 42 this year, it seems as though my eyesight, balance,energy is diminishing, oh, just realised, I have had a dozen beers, that could be it. Well, hope to see you all in the forums throughout the year.Sandra O is YUMMY

I hope you have more space for your garden now than in China. Good luck with it, it's worth the effort including the composting. You'll probably have a longer growing season in OZ than I have in the Sth Island of NZ so I envy you that. I grow organically for my own health and that of the birds that I share my garden with and I'm doing my little bit for the planet too. Keep us posted.

Welcome John. Who are your favourite riders in the the classes that you named?
5th Apr 09, 05:00 #95
seems like this is the place for introductions, so...
My name is Simon and I am a motorcycle racing fan. I currently own a CBR600 F4i that has been modified for track use only (race glass, exhaust, power commander, rebuilt suspension, sticky tyres, etc), and am lamenting at leisure the sale of my 2000 model 900ss that was my road use bike.
Current duties as the father of a 10mth old boy have meant that track time has been a little limited recently, but - dare to dream. Have been looking for a forum that doesn't contain too many brow beating, A grade egos, somewhere to discuss the shared passion and exchange ideas. Here's hoping that this is the place.

Yep, am a fan of the Super Westie. Interesting how when you put the guy on an even vaguely competitive bike, starts taking podium finishes?

I'd love a track bike. Mate of mine got one recently and doing a couple of track days on my roadbiike, I'm terrified of dropping it. It's great fun though. Ahh, so many toys I'd like, so little money.
Anyways, look forward to your contributions.Get off my lawn
