I'm from south of Glasgow, UK. Have had a fair few bikes in the over the 32 years I've had my full UK bike license and this is my 6th Fireblade. Other Blades: '00 929, '05 Repsol, '08, '13 Repsol, '15 SP. I also have a 2001 VFR800 and 2014 VFR1200F in my garage. I'm blessed with a wonderful wife who appreciates/understands/puts up with my connection with Honda bikes.
My late sister is responsible for the interest in bikes. Living in a small village in the early '80s the only way she could get out was by bike - at 16yrs she bought a Honda MT5. I used to 'borrow' it and hoon around the quiet back roads.
