Ridiculefr35 Posted March 9, 2011 Report Share Posted March 9, 2011 Hello folks. I'm a 38 old South African residing in Brittany, France since 2001. I'm very passionate about motorcycles. I'm riding a 2010 Kawasaki ZX10R. I got the bike last September. Since then, I've ridden 4340km till last Sunday, all on the street, group or solo rides. This year, I've applied for a circuit licence, received that. I'm currently awaiting my leather suit, before I hit the track. I've ridden a 1992 GPZ500s and 1988 ZX10 Tomcat before this bike. It's become clear to me that power and handling of the new ZX10R is a whole new universe waiting to be unravelled. I don't think I've ridden within 40% of the bike's full potential. Since before I got this bike, I've been reading and watching whatever material I can find off the e-net to see how to better my road riding and now my soon to be track riding. I've seen bits and pieces of CSS clips and today, I finally ordered Twist of the Wrist 2 on DVD. I've already got the printed version which has helped while away the winter. I often read and then try to apply what I've read. Now I'd like to see the dvd as well. I'm an engineer by profession (telecoms) so the technical approach is perfectly suited to my thought process. Since last year, I've invested or rather shelled out quite a bit of money towards a new bike, new equipment and now track equipment. Hence I don't see myself at the "UK CSS " anytime before next year if ever and I've certainly not got the budget for a trip to CSS in the US so for now, I've got the book, the dvd, the forum and loads of motivation. My main issues are my steering speed if I can call it that. South Africa is very well designed in terms of roads, lots of highways, fast corners and I'm ok with that. In France, you don't have much width in the lanes and it's very very tight cornering, decreasing radius turns and I've had to adapt as well to the weather conditions and at times poor road surfaces. So thats who I am and why I'm here. I've already been reading a few threads and already it's helpful. Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
