I recently became a biker:
only on Spring 2000 I bought my first motorbike, a
Suzuki GS850G - 1983), but now I'm trying to take back the
time I've lost in this field: now, my car is just my "secondary
I used my GS850G for one year, then I had the possibility to
buy a Suzuki GSX-F 600, that I owned
until May 2003. GSX-F 600 isn't a top-end racing bike, nor the
most comfortable cruiser, nor the fashion-bike of the moment
but... it works well, it has enough power for the normal street
use, it's cheap, and it can give some nice sensation even in
In the meanwhile, I bought together with my brother an old
but still "kicking" 1990's Suzuki GSX-R 750. We use it to have fun on
normal roads but mainly on circuits.
So, replacing the GSX-F 600 with the brand new Yamaha YZF-R6, a much more sportive and "extreme" bike, has
been a sad thing from some points of view.
Less than one month from its purchase, my new R6 was stolen. I've
spent summer 2003 without my bike, and on half August 2003 I bought
another one. So, I can just do one thing: I wish worst luck and
bad sufferings to those who had the nice idea to steal it. Afterwards,
the second R6 got stolen as well. Any other comment is useless.
Despite of my "supposedly mature" age, from time to time I
like to have a sportive ride on a circuit so, each time I can,
I try to slide with my knees and my boots (well, with my bike
wheels as well) on the surface of nearby circuit (actually not
just nearby, since we've gone to run to the international Circuit
of Misano Adriatico and Mugello)...
