32 years. Started in 1974 and have ridden consistently right throughout that time. All (well, mostly) road riding.
The one thing I can say about all the mistakes I have made in the past is that, given the opportunity, I can repeat them all.

I'm lost and confused in this strange
world called reality
We all have 2 personalities
One online
One in real life
which one are you
It's not how much your willing to put in, It's how much your willing to give up
It's not what you know, It's what you can prove
