A little more about me
I've been riding motorcycles since the age of 5. I've competed in motocross from the age of 14 and managed to successfully ride the ACMA 250 championship aboard an RM250Z in the early 80's riding for the late great Colin Harrison. I've ridden or owned pretty much every type of bike in my 49 years of riding. I am currently riding a Z900, bought for my wife's birthday which i steal for a daily commute. I also own a ZX10R used mainly for track days and really sunny days. When the weather isn't as good in the UK I love riding in Europe, up and down the passes.
I was also lucky enough to compete with Janspeed in the late 80's and early 90's, in touring cars; Sierra Cosworth and Skyline GTR, winning 7 class 24hr Spa Francorchamps, 2 Nurburgring 24hr and 4 years in BTCC 1990-1994 in a Primera.
My other passion is photography, almost as expensive as bikes but I love going to the circuit and getting those action shots of bikes and cars, or just going down the beach and capturing the sea on a stormy day. It's a great way to relax in what is a hectic life.
