I,m King of the World

 

You could say that I’ve been doing this for quite some time, let’s see, got my first road bike in 78. Okay let’s not do numbers as it may make me look old. We’ll just say that it’s been over 30 years that I’ve been riding on the road. If you take in all the years that I spent on the farm growing up as a kid you could say more like 40 years or so. You get a bike when you’re young and then you grow up, you know, become more responsible as bikes are not safe, so they say!! Done that, but still kept the bike. It's funny when you’re my age and you meet somebody for the first time and because you ride a big sports bike they think you're trying to hold onto your youth. Little do they know that at my age I don’t care what they think! A good ride is like a form of meditation, you clear the mind and only think of the road and how to ride it. The more I commit to this the better the ride and all the crap in your head is gone.

Little do they know that at my age I don’t care what they think! I turned 50 this year (2010) and still love a good ride on my R1, it's like a form of meditation, you clear the mind and only think of the road and how to ride it. The more I commit to this the better the ride and all the crap in your head is gone.

A Day at Eastern Creek   This photo on the left was taken at Eastern Creek Raceway is Sydney in 1999 at a track day. Carson with one of his Honda CBR600's and me on my Yamaha YZF1000. Of all the people I have met over the years riding bikes, Carson would have had the most effect on my riding. I first met Carson when he was learning to ride and he learnt fast. As Carson become a better rider he pushed the limits which made me explore my own capabilities further. Over the years that I've been chasing or been chased by Carson on the bike's on some of our favourite roads, to say there has been some interesting rides is one-way of putting it!!
