Back in the saddle!
Growing up I loved off roading and kart racing. Mainly on 4 wheels (trucks and quads), peer pressure eventually encouraged me to try a dirt bike. It was only once or twice, but both times a lot easier than I expected. When kart racing finally fell away and I went off to school I grew to miss the exposure to the elements and excitement.
5 years ago now I bought my first bike, a 2008 Kawasaki ZX6R SE and fell in love with riding. I learned a lot on that bike, but sadly it was wrecked when someone exiting a driveway didn't see me coming down the street. I spent 2 weeks in the ICU after that head on collision and 9-12 months recovering physically and mentally. This crash was 2.5 years ago now and the itch just grew too strong. I'm back on two wheels and this time I purchased the bike I dreamed of even back then, a 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R.
It feels better than ever to be back on a bike. This bike is clearly going to teach me more than I learned before, it's incredible how confidence enduing it is in a corner. Corner tightening up? Just lean over more, it'll take care of you. Need to slow it down but you're at full tilt? Don't worry, you have ABS.
One of my strongest goals is to gain experience on track, any tips are appreciated!
Excited to be here!
