Red face Hello from South East England

Hello everyone,

My name is G, I am 31 yo and I am new to this forum.

I have an old GPZ500s that I fully rebuilt for track use. It was my bike when I was a student and then kind of left it in my parent's garage for around 10 years because of travelling around, working in foreign countries etc. I have spent the last 3 months getting it up to speed and how I should have just to get some nice tyres, test run and should be good to go. It was a complete disaster when I recovered it, it was a wreck.

I remember my track days a long time ago and I loved racing against CB500s, everyone was making fun for me riding a GPZ500s, for some reason the bike was not to their taste

Looking forward to riding on track here in England so if I can find a buddy around on this forum would be amazing.

Have a great day!

Welcome to the forum.

Never mind what people think, it's only about what YOU think! They can ride their own bikes, you ride your GPZ500! And enjoy it!
