Thumbs up How far have you come???

Lets see how far some of our members came from the first days of riding. I find it funny to look back and be one of the clowns that i hate and hunt down all the time.

Me in 2000

LOL. I was actually thinking of starting a thread just like this. I have probably the most squidly video ever to post on here, me on the back tire setting it down at about 90 mph with a cut off shirt, jeans and a helmet. I later found out what riding a sport bike is all about...THE CURVES! Full leathers, helmet, gloves and boots for me now. This was only a year ago, Ive came a long way since then.
