    Another new guy!

    Hello to all of you from another new guy from Nashua, NH!

    I've been riding for a long time and it was mostly cruisers or similar rides(mainly a Triumph R3 ). Last year I made the switch to sport bikes and there's been no looking back. I did a couple of track school days at NHMS with Penguin last year and am itching to go back on track again(damn this winter!)

    Switching from a cruiser to sports bike and then track re-kindled my love for riding big time!! I use a 2003 CBR 600RR for the track and also ride a 2014 BMW S1000RR that I will eventually come around to using on the track.

    thanks for the welcome again guys! Here's a couple of photos from the 2nd track day.. The riding position was much improved from the first time around though there's still a whole lot to learn!! Any and all critique is welcome!!

    Looking forward to interacting and learning from all the good folks here!

    Welcome to the party, pal! (in my best Bruce Willis voice)

    I am a big fan of the Honda 600's (had 5 of them over the years, including your year)

    Nothing wrong with the Big Beemer on the track, but I would suggest sticking with the 600 for another full year, if possible. While I am on a 1000 now, I'm glad I spent many years on the 600 first.

    Thanks for the welcome and the advice Tony! Much appreciated! I do intend to stick with the 600 only on the track for now as you said, a 1000 would be too much to handle on the track right now. I look forward to doing track days with you next year!

    Welcome...

    Litchfield here. A bunch of us ride together out of Seacoast Sport Cycle in Derry.

    And I've done a few track days myself. Maybe I'll see you at a TTD or Fishtail event!
