    Morning everyone!

    Former rider, got back on a bike after more than ten years stuck in cages. I'm a car mechanic and chef that now works an office job thanks to a buggered up back.

    My current bike is a 2005 Suzuki VL250, and I love to hate that thing. Rides great, loads of fun....but if I ever meet the engineering team that designed it, I'm going to slap them with a trout.

    So yea, I'm generally an easygoing guy, willing to lend a hand when people need it, whether that's advice on how to fix something, or getting it up on the lift to look at it myself. I also tend to find problems that nobody knows the answer to, so be prepared for those threads.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone!

    If anyone in SA ever needs help, my garage is open whenever I am home (weekends), and I have pretty much everything needed to strip a bike down and rebuild it, including a rear paddock stand and a hydraulic lift. I accept payment in Asahi Super Dry, or cash towards the beer fund.
