Re: ROLL CALL
OK, I'll go next... My birth name is Kathy, but everyone calls me Kitty & I'll probably answer quicker to that. I am 28 years old & live in the San Diego area. My older brother (by 12 years) taught me how to ride dirtbikes when I was about 8. When I was about 10 & he was in his early 20's, he went into a partnership on buying a Honda/Yamaha/Kawasaki Dealership. So, I was always around bikes for the majority of the time when I was growing up. I would go into the shop, see all the bikes, & want a streetbike SO BAD that I couldn't stand it. When I was 15, I finally learned how to ride street on a little Ninja 250. I got my first bike for my 16th birthday. It became an obsession & just went on from there. I went from the Ninja 250, to a 1987 Honda VFR 700, then traded that for a 1986 Honda VFR 750. I just sold that VFR about 6 months ago for an Aprilia Falco SL 1000. I spend most of my time on Palomar Mountain with my own bike, but occasionally, I'll race a friend's bike up at Willow Springs with the CMRRA. I'll be keeping my Aprilia for a long time, but I'm planning on getting an Aprilia RS50 as a 2nd bike in the near future so that I don't have to borrow bikes anymore when I want to race.
