Newly reborn member...

Hey All,

Just a hello as I'm back in the saddle again with the Kawasaki ZX10R thing. Just started working on a new 08 race project.

I've been racing motorcycles for 10 years now and cars for another 6 years. Most of my racing has been on the Kawasaki product (ZX6R, ZX6RR, and mostly ZX10R).

I'm 40 years old and still spend my vacations tarvelling the worlds race tracks (Donington, Oulten Park, Cataluyna, etc) to take schools, or enjoy track time. I was just south of Nagoya in Japan at the Suzuka circuit this past October for a pro race school. Made my way over to Osaka to have a custom suit made at RS Taichi (yes, pix are available if interested)...contact Taka Niwa (I have the email if you need it) if your interested in getting a suit custom made.

I've been teaching new and experienced motorcyclists to ride for over 15 years (about 1000 + per year). I also work with many race schools as an Instructor.

I have several race championships but nothing outside of regional. Outside of that...my hobbies include checking out your avatars...some interesting pix!

Anyhow, I'll be in SoCal and Nevada for a bunch of track days and schools coming in the next few months...I'll be a student again, always so much to learn. If anyone is attending any WERA races or local events, I hope to meet you there.

Take care!

Thanks!

James
