Been riding since 1999.

Kawasaki KZ650 to FZR 600 to R6

In total I probably put on about 15K. Never been down. I have dropped a bike in the driveway and the first one at an intersection. (Smooth)

I have a friend back in Chicago that rode for many years and he's got a limp from one such ride. He says, "There are only two kinds of riders; those that have been down, and those that are going."

started with dirt bikes since i was like 12. many accidents on the dirt. started with street bikes in high school. i just rode friends bikes. so for the past 15 years i have been riding off and on. i never got really serious until '03 when i bought my R6. the only accident i had was a low side at work going 5 mph. i had many close calls though.

i seen my buddy's brand new 03 r6 silver, and fell in love with the style. i never seen a bike so beautiful (until the 04 r1 came out). so i had to go get one, and i did. like a couple days later i went and got the same exact one and dropped 7500$ on a used 03 (thats all i had at the time and a new one is a G more) bought it in june 03 and started riding street for my first time. i had never ever ridden streetbikes before but i guess i am a natural because i got pretty good with the 6 great bike i might say! traded it in on the r1 a year later and 10 days later BOOM a fucking bitch hits me at the intersection and leaves me to die, hit and run on my new r1 what the **** now im bike-less until march... hopefully! ive rode dirt when i was younger til now

:cheers
