    New track day rider from Boston!

    Hi everybody!!

    My name is Nate, and I'm a track-0-holic. I've been riding all my life! Got my first bike when i was 12. A spanking new Honda XR100R. Didn't have it for long due to my father's unfortunate circumstance at the time, but none the less the 2 wheel bug had bitten me, and I was VERY sick. I spent a lot of time on the dirt until (due to my uncle being scared of his shiney new bike) I came across my first street bike: 2003 ZX636. Even after a few near death experiences and an idiotic 18yr old mentality, my fever for riding grew that much more. Fast forward to June 22nd, 2013. Enter the ZX10R. My current ride and my baby. Got her at 11.8k miles, and after 7k this season now at 21k. Still ticking no matter what I throw at her! This past year I experienced my first 3 track days and I'm absolutely hooked. A crash in the last one has lead me here in search of the never ending well of road race knowledge and a track bike so I can stop roughing up my used to be shiny street machine. I hope to get to know everyone soon and be an asset the NESR community!

    PS - I'm an experienced mechanic. Anyone looking for help fixing their steed (or cage) I would be happy to lend advice and/or a helping wrench. Ride safe brothers!

    Is there any way to upload photos without having to provide URL's in this forum?

    Rumor has it that the 2004 and 2005 were BEASTS...

    I hear you. I still have my first bike.

    Keep in mind; the ZX6RR is the same bike as the 636, minus a few cc's(and like 2hp), but plus a slipper clutch, and some other racey type shit.

    There's some good roads behind the Larz Anderson area and Jamaica pond (Jamaica Plain). There's also some good roads through Brookline and Newton; Storrow Drive and Memorial Drive are also fun; the key is to hit them on a weekend early morning or a weeknight (other than Friday) around 7pm or later....riding during any other times in Boston and you're gonna want to proceed to find the nearest gun and insert it in your mouth. Lol
