Another Forum Noob


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

As you can see my name is Darth Peachy, no I didn't have cruel parents that isn't my real name. I use that name because that's what most people I am in regular contact with on youtube, google+ and other forums know me as so I thought better to keep the same name.

 

My real name is Chris, I'm 31, born in London England and currently live in Gibraltar with my wife Amanda and 3 year old son Max. he wasn't named after Max Biaggi but as an after thought he should have been!

 

i joined the forum because i watched Twist of the wrist II on youtube about a year ago and it has helped improve my riding tremendously. I was so impressed that I went and bought the book and the DVD so that any time I want to push my limits or work on an area of my riding that I feel needs improving or even just as a way of boosting my confidence on days when I just don't feel grounded I can just refer back to it.

 

I was watching the DVD again recently and feeling enlightened and inspired I decided to do a Google search for Keith Code. I found this forum and decided to sign up.

 

I've been riding bikes (commuting) for 15 years now but it has only been in the last 3 years that I have taken riding more seriously and taken steps to become a better rider.

 

As I mentioned before I have a youtube channel where I record How To videos on motorcycle maintenance, vlogs and am currently working on a road safety series for the benefit of new riders. If any one would like to take a look just search for Darth Peachy or Peachy's Place or send me a PM because I don't think were allowed to post links up on here and wouldn't want to upset the mods on my first post :)

 

Ok mamoth intro, gonna stop nattering now (here at least) see ya all around the forum.

 

Chris

Welcome to the forum Chris. Tell us more about your riding. What do you want to work on? Are you interested in track riding as well or are you primarily focused on street riding?

 

 

Best,

Carey

 

BTW...Loved the video with the monkeys. You should have turned them loose on the red vw driver. :)

haha ya know I hadn't thought of that. With any luck she's one of those people who lives in one of the areas frequently visited by the monkeys :)

 

I am 100% street rider. I have never done a track day, but my aim for 2014 is to get on the track at least once. I am extremely lucky in that due to my geographical location Jerez is just an hours ride away so I want to get up there for a day.

 

Even though I've never done a track day I can see the advantages of it and I think it is the next logical step for me and the only way I am going to improve my riding. I'm planning on riding from Gibraltar to the UK in August for the Bull Dog Bash. It's a 700 mile ride from here to Bilbao where I'll take a ferry to the UK. I think that is going to help improve my riding too as it's the furthest out I've ever gone and I'll be riding solo. I think anything that takes you out of your comfort zone helps you grow.

 

So those are my two aims for the year.
