Hello from Malaysia!!

Hey there everyone my name is Garret and I moved from Missouri, U.S. a few months ago over here to Malaysia. I've been around bikes since I bought my first one at age 15 (1993 Kawasaki zx6) and I've had countless bikes since, mostly Kawasaki of course. I started doing trackdays when I was 18 and have done a couple races as well. I'm living the dream now, working for and helping a bike shop grow (SBM Motorsport) and getting to ride/race on a Moto GP track (Sepang). So if anyone decides to visit Malaysia, feel free to look me up. I'm always looking for other sportbike enthusiasts to share my interests with. Here are a few pictures for you guys.
At Sepang a few days ago:


The zx10 I rode at Sepang:


At Heartland park Topeka, Kansas on my 09 zx6r:


Putnam Motorsports Park in Indiana on my 09 zx6r:


Barber motorsports park on my 09 zx6r:

Just a picture from Arizona Motorsports Park:

Welcome to Malaysia Garret....
Thanks for the welcome bro. Last week I was in kuching, I've been doing a lot of flying back and forth while getting settled it seems like. My girlfriend lives in kuching and I'm trying to bring her to KL with me eventually (when she finishes college) but for now I have to jump back and forth.

I did my R&R in KL in 1967. The hot spots for R&R then were Bangcock and Pubic Bay, but I took a chance on Malaysia and never regretted it. It was nice then and I'm sure is much nicer now. Count yer blessings for being able to live there. And welcome aboard.
