Number of bikes owned? 5
Favorite bike owned? Tough one, RGV taught me a lot but the R1 is a mad rush.
Favorite bike? M1
Favorite Rider? Noriyuki Abe - shame he never managed to get a WSBK title.
Favorite racing league(AMA, WSBK, IRR, FIA ENDURO)? WSBK
Most prominent bike related memory? My very first ride, getting the bike to about 150kph on the highway. The noise, the sound, the adrenaline rush. From that moment I knew I would be riding for as long as I could.
Biggest crash? Not a big crash but it was when I first started riding, was chasing a few riders and went in too hot into a corner and I target fixated onto the crash barrier. Hit it doing about 20ks. Bike landed on top of me damaging my collar and right knee.
Fair weather or All weather rider? Fair weather.
Fix it yourself or get it Fixed? Try to fix it my self.
Mountains or Canyons? Canyons (thats the twisty bits right).
Every been to a track-day? Been to 3 track day at EC.
Brand loyal or brand slag? Owned Hondas, Kawasakis, Suzukis and Yamahas so not donīt care.
Rather push your bike or drive a car? Iīve pushed a bike uphill for 3ks, never again. Car for me.
In less that 20 words why do you ride? The freedom, the feeling I get when I take a corner just right. The sense of calm when riding my favorite road.
