Back in the day I was riding a black FZR 1000. In 2007 I switched to a FJR to better ride with my wife. Over the years folks stopped riding or moved away. I was mostly riding to commute. About a year ago I sold the bike with only 40k miles on it. I just wasn’t riding it anymore. A big reason is that I started working from home, and with no big rides to plan for the summers. I was finding it hard and harder to get out. My skills were waning and I found to be irresponsible of me to ride with two kids and wonderful wife at home.
I still have all my gear in the off chance that I might find myself in a position to ride again.
I do still believe that life is meant to be on two wheels, and have picked up Mt Biking again.
Did someone say Saki? I’ve been getting digest emails from SB.WS for years and lurking. Miss the old days, glad I found SB.WS, because if I hadn’t, I wouldn’t have found AlcoholicR1! 15 years married this year!
I did the msf class work under you at Ron Turner when you had the zx7r I believe. I’ve got 2 tlr, 1098, rz350, and ride my Aprilia 250 scooter the most lol
Trying to get minimotos back at fscj or something.

@Spyral it’s been a long long time. I miss those days myself. Good to see some names I recognize.
Me, I’ve been on a hell of a ride, I live in Colombia now where I’m building a resort, I’m partially paralyzed but not from riding, I’m actually looking to get back on after 3yrs of being off 2 wheels.
@Rob still got that Avatar I made you in the SBN days?
Hope to catch up with you guys in person some day.
Damn Jet, long time no hear. Hows things going? No idea on that avatar, the pc I used back then took a big dump. CF has a FB group for the CF OG’s called CF OGs. About 130 of us there.

@Rob Fuck man, it’s been what… 20yrs? You were one of the first people I met back on SBN. It’s a bit nostalgic coming back here.
I finally got a new ride, KTM 990 Adventure, put on a klicktronic hand shifter since I’m half gimp and then…the end of the god damn world happens and I’m stuck inside. Fate is a cruel mistress.
I hope everyone is doing well, stay safe/stay the hell away from everyone

@Jet Still working here. Our shop is considered essential since we make tooling for a number of medical and military suppliers. Still in southern WI.
It’s a shame forums got deserted. The new layout is awesome. I don’t want my moto shenanigans tied to others

@zx250r I’m still holding out hope that FakeBook and Twatter will stop being the places of preference when it comes to forums. Not sure whatever was the huge draw…FakeBook groups suck and it’s a bitch to carry on a conversation as threads get lost over time.
When that fad dies down, SBWS will be here waiting.

Wow! Great to see a lot of the old crew from back in my Orlando group riding days still around.
I left Orlando back in 2004 and haven’t lived there since, unfortunately.
Still riding but on a different bike since O-Town.
Back then, I had a 1996 GSX-R 750 blue and white paint scheme.
Now, I have a 2008 GSX-R 750 black.
I miss you guys and those great group rides and the two wheel Tuesdays at Winghouse and Steak and Shake.
