Hey.

Hey, I'm Jess.

Living in England, but hoping to move to the US someday. Maybe within the next two or three years, if all goes well.

I currently alternate between a little Sym DD 50 scooter, Aprilia RS125 and my 1999 Suzuki GSXR 600 SRAD which I'm reluctantly selling so I can buy a Suzuki GSXR 1000 K5, despite strange looks from blokes in the dealerships and comments on how I'm a woman and how it's a lot of power for a 'little person'.

I say, don't underestimate me!

Anyway, hope I'll be welcomed here, so greetings all.

Since I was 11, to be honest!

But alas, road rules and all, only been on the road since I was sixteen, and coming up to being 18 and a half now.

That's kinda what I was wondering overall. With the rules being what they are, when can you get a 1K? The GSXR is a ferocious machine, and with very little modification they make a competitive machine for sure.

Well, I'm halfway through my A2 motorcycle test. Just gotta pass Module 2, then I'll buy the K5, and just have to restrict it til I'm 21.

Cool! That's not so bad.
