Cool

I'm new here so let me introduce myself. I live in Reno, Nevada, about 15 miles away from California and the Sierras, home of the mountain twisties. I currently own a 2000 CBR929RR, which is my third bike. It's stock for now, and it rocks. I've clocked about 2700 miles on it. It's my first bike that does throttle wheelies. I love it and think about it all the time. It's like having two girlfriends.

My first bike was a tricked up KZ750, all black and chrome with 4-1 shiny Vance and Hines. My best memory on that bike is hydroplaning on the freeway. Heh. After that I went a few years without a bike, then suddenly got bit by the fever. I needed a bike quick but didn't have any money, so I decided to get the best bike $1500 could buy, which wound up being a red EX500. Fun little bike, slim and quick, good commuter weapon. But you understand why I had to trade up.

Anyway, that's me. Will be interesting to get to know you guys and trade knowledge on sportbikes.

Oh yeah... anyone going to Sears Point/SonomaFest for the races on May 4-6?
