Hi...I guess I'm the new guy.
Well, my name is Tyler, and I am from Midland, MI. I have been a "car guy" for about 5 years now. I really started to get big into cars with my 94 Mazda Rx7. Unfortunately after a year I was broke...I had more than a few problems with that car, and I had to get rid of it last winter. In exchange for that I got a 94 Integra GSR, which I have since turbocharged to 221whp on only 5psi. I recently bought another car, a daily driver Scion xA, and have since realized that I really don't need two cars...so I have decided to sell the Integra and use the money to buy a bike. I think that is the best possible direction for me right now. Since my dad moved out we really haven't done much together, which is really sad for me because we were really close when I was a kid. He is huge into motorcycles (has a 2000 Suzuki Intruder LC 1500) and I think me getting a bike and riding with him would not only give us something to do together, but will really help our relationship. Plus it's something I've been getting excited about for a while now. It's strange - I think about myself being on a bike and my adrenaline kicks in and my heart starts beating faster...but I can see myself driving in a Corvette and nothing happens lol...maybe riding a bike is the natural progression for car guys.
So, that's where I am now...the car is for sale (let me know if you're interested at all...) and I'm looking for a mid-sized sportbike, narrowed down to the ones in my signature. I guess from there I will probably modify that, but I can't think that far ahead right now. I know I'll probably do something with the exhaust, but not sure what yet.
I am 21 years old in October, and am a senior at Michigan State University, majoring in Chemistry. I hope to either work in a chemical manufacturing plant or work as a criminalist in a crime lab somewhere.
Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself.
