First of all, let me say that I tried the cruiser thing when I re -entered the bike world a few years back, and was bored to tears. Then I tried the sport-tourer thing....still not doing it for me! Now I'm having a blast on my first real, no excuses sportbike. I am old (40) compared to most sportbike guys, but I still enjoy a good spirited ride! I am interesed in getting better, and having more fun with a track school. Does anybody know of any in the New York area? The closest one that I know of is in New Hampshire...is that my only option in this area? Also, my girlfriend and I (she rides a Kawi ZX 6)are always looking for friends to ride with on Long Island and up into New England.
