Have had bikes since I was 16 with the odd gap here and there. Just progressed to a GSX 1400 Suzuki and what a bike this is! 0 to 60mph in under three seconds certainly annoys the boy racers when they pull up next to you at the lights. Have had one or two Porsches and sports car things think again!

Seriously, I am a very careful rider and always assume that car drivers have not seem me, so it's not too bad. Oh and around 1000 of safety gear helps. Still getting used to the power but it's a big comfy bike but not as economical as my 1.5 dCi Clio. But then........

Yep, had 'bikes since I was 16 and was riding even before then.

Getting a bit sensible now, so bought a more laid back 1100 Yamaha Virago. It's lovely just to sit and cruise along but then filtering through the traffic overtaking all those people who steamed past earlier wasting all their fuel!
