MarJay's Public Bio
Hi, My name is Mark and I'm a Bikeoholic!
I have a 2008 Triumph Street Triple R and a Buell XB12R as my main bikes. The Triumph is an awesomely capable machine. Fast, light and sweet handling. Good if you want pure adrenaline. The Buell is more raw, in some ways more sporty but also heavier. It also has more 'character' and makes an astonishing noise.
I also own a Kawasaki KR1S. I've always had at least one two stroke sports bike ever since I rode a mates TZR250 2MA back in 2005. I suppose it harks back to my first ever bike, an NS125R. The KR1S is fast, frenetic and amazing fun although I've not had it out yet this year.
I just bought myself a 2008 CBR600RR track bike which is also road legal. I plan to test it out on the road to make sure all the mechanicals in order, then bring on the trackdays!
I love solo riding and trackdays, and have been known to participate in the odd ride-out. All the way back in July 2005 I went touring in Scotland (with Bendy and Robby) and I enjoyed every minute, but don't really like fully faired machines, so have not had much of a chance to repeat this.
Recently I have got into pitbike racing and raced for a couple of years in the Matchams Pitbike series. I've knocked this on the head in favour of trackdays for the time being, but I might go back to it (now known as the Clay Pigeon Pitbike Series).
I have a strong interest in engineering and I'm a bit of a bike nerd so I might have a go at answering your technical questions too - if I can be bothered!
My previous bikes have included an NS125R, a VFR400 NC21, an SV650S, a Triumph Daytona 955i, two Triumph TT600's a Yamaha TZR250, a Buell XB12R, a VFR400 NC30, a Suzuki RGV250, a Kawasaki KE100, a Honda Fireblade 954, a GasGas Pampera 250, A Triumph Speed Four, 2x RD350YPVSs a RD350LC, another SV650S, a Buell XB12S Lightning, an MZ ETZ 301 Saxon Fun and a Yamaha FZR400RR.
I work for an American company that makes kit for broadcasters which is based in Farnborough. I live in Basingstoke and am originally from Reading.
As for music, I like Rock and Metal and electronic dance music of some types. My two favourite bands/acts are Iron Maiden and The Prodigy.
