eSportbike 7+ years ago


Anybody still around from 2000ish? I haven't logged into this site since 2002 and I probably haven't touched my bike since about that time either.

It's funny to see my avatar and bleached hair which was the trend 7 years ago. I'm now a multi-national corporation business professional. Talk about what happens over time.

Anybody remember the flash animations I made back in 1999? I just uploaded them to a site again if anybody wants to take a look and remember way back then!

The Squid

How to wheelie

Drop me a line if you remember me, let me know what's new and what's happened in the last 7+ years. I'll drop back by to see any messages when I get the chance.

I got on here because I was showing my girlfriends daughter bike video's on youtube and saw some terms we started back in the day on here. I was hoping to find bike stories I posted back then but it looks like anything over 6 years old was purged. I remember logging every bike story I had on here, to bad I can't read them now.

Yeah I seem to remember you, only my handle on here back then was 'BlackMica(h)'.

So are you going to pull that bike out of retirement & dust it off or what??? :

Re: eSportbike 7+ years ago

Amazing.

I will pull it out, maybe in the spring. But I'll probably be putting it up for sale. I might take it for a ride or two, but my new toys are boats. That's about the time I stopped riding as well. I just bought a 28 foot cabin cruiser over the Summer. I'm looking for more family oriented stuff.

Not to mention if I was in a bad bike accident I could risk my future and career.

My youngest brother got into bikes. He has an R1 right now I believe. Brand new but hasn't done any mechanical mods, just superficial mods.

How's everybody been?

Re: eSportbike 7+ years ago

Rhathid~ I wish I could say that I've left and returned but sadly I can't seem to break "the habit". : Try as I might I'm always here. Maybe an intervention is necessary? That or I swear if I reach 30,000 posts I HAVE to retire. :

BTW, there's nothing wrong with R1's: :

Re: eSportbike 7+ years ago

Okay, you guys are causing me to want to ride again. This kid down the street has a Busa, but there's no way he'd know I know anything about bikes.

The issue is, I have way to many hobbies so I have to give something up if I want to do something else. I'm to A.D.D. to stick with one thing. I don't even have enough time for the hobbies I'm currently into.

For instance, this is my next hobby...

Notice the display.




And to be honest, unless you put a bird into a dive or do something very crazy, there's no adrenaline factor.

Re: eSportbike 7+ years ago

Mirage, is that your R1 or just a decked out promo model, because that thing looks bad.

I noticed Gixxie is still around and has a fan base. I remember when she was just getting into bikes.

Another member who has been around here way too long : The flying is interesting, that is something I have had an interest in but the time/money has never worked out. : Good luck on whatever you do, I know riding is what I will be doing until I physically cant anymore...

I seem to recall the handle.

Glad you're having a good time Rathid, & that life is treating you well.
