I'm Chris and live in Abbotsford BC - 45 mins away from Vancouver. I'm not a huge fan of the city of Abbotsford but I can walk to work and it is in a good location for just buggering off for a few hours to a few days on some savage MC roads!
I'm a registered nurse and work in the ER. Not too many dull moments which I like. Also the 5 days off between sets of shifts is nice for getting a lot of riding in the season.
I'm not new to motorcycles, but this will be the first year I actually own my own. My family is big into bikes so there was always a dirt bike to borrow and the odd street bike opportunity. I opted for the SV because I thought it would be best for what I want to do - ride a LOT. I was most interested in the Gixxer 750 but I think I wouldn't enjoy it as much for the longer hauls. I also plan on doing some track schools this summer, and get involved in that as much as possible...I have been into Skylines for the past few years and track days were always a highlight of owning that car. I'm a big car nut - I am a moderator on a JDM import forum, as well as being involved in car meets and such... and I'm excited to finally be able to buy my own bike because that's always been a passion since I had my first ride when I was 5 yrs old.
I'd post more but I have to go to work...
But this seems like a friendly forum, and I look forward to being an active member. :leghump:
