Hey all.....Just joined this site. Not new to bikes. I have been riding sportbikes since '95. Rode dirtbikes before that.

My current ride is an 05 Titanium ZX 10R. I love this bike! I am into trackdays and long twisty rides. I ride to work just so I can be on 2 wheels. Except when it hits 90 degrees and higher! I work in a tool and die shop, so the last thing I want to do at the end of the day is stuff my sweaty arse in my leathers for the trip home.......THat's about it!

Stampers agree. ZX10 is the only choice. LOL

Thanks for the welcome guys!

Amazing how you two are the first 2 people that I have met on any of the forums I belong to that are in my line of work! I have been in tool and die for 10 years now. All of it in Product Development. I work in a 3 man shop so you have to know how to do everything. I do all the design work and make the tool to stamp out the prototype parts. Tired of the rat race, though. We just came off 9 weeks straight of 12 hour days. Now back to 10 hour days! They seam REAL short now!

Welcome to the board. Nice ride. Sorry, not a machinist.
