Student in Leeds, lifeguard at home (North Preston).
Started out on a Honda x8rs at the age 16. Loved riding, partly the reason for me not doing great in my GCSE was because I was distracted riding this.
Then at 17 I got a Honda City Fly (CLR125), which was great fun, road that until my 18th birthday when I got a Honda Hornet 250...
Which was great fun, it did what I wanted and was amazing fun to ride. Sometimes still wish I had it now. I then sold that when I was 21 and bought a Honda vfr750 (1993). I road this for 3 months and had a crash (my fault) which wrote the bike off.
To replace the vfr I bought (and is still my current ride) a Yamaha xt600e. Which is very different to my last 2 bikes however it is great fun to ride.
