Hello Wrist Twisters - time for my introduction thread

Hello everyone, my name is Lash and to tell you about me, I'm a motorcycle connoisseur and a riding junkie. I just love to ride, ever since picking up my first motorcycle in 1996. I'm probably one of the most laid back people you will ever meet, always been a die hard Kawasaki fan, but I just like motorcycles so I can appreciate anything with two wheels.

Outside of motorcycles, I love to snowboard, am big into computers and technology, enjoy photography, and I'm always down for a good espresso.

Looking forward to contributing to the Wrist Twisters motorcycling community.

Welcome Lash. Liking the changes but as soon as everyone here is adjusted and had time to settle down from the trauma of not having WT for a full day we are going to have to do something about that Kawasaki problem... Its for your own good. Before you know it you will be bleeding Honda Red and riding a 919.

Hey Lash, just curious, where did you come from? Did you work with websites on other forums? What motorcycle forums have you belonged to before? How did you find Wristtwisters and come about acquiring the site?

Inquiring minds and all...

Yes I've ridden through those areas' incredibly beautiful twisty roads. But it's been way too long ago so I look forward to the next visit! It's just a long day's ride away... Congrats on your exciting new ownership and spiffing up the place!

My lawnmower is a Honda lol... seriously though, I have an old 2-stroke Honda 250R for my ATV and have had many Honda dirtbikes over the years. I've ridden the Honda 919 before, the wind blast at 100mph+ really slowed me down. It's not that the bike wasnt fast enough, I just couldnt take the wind blast on it.

I am an admin on another forum thats been around since 2001, its for Kawasaki motorcycles. Kevin and I had long talks about this forum and the appeal to me was becoming part of a site that isnt one-brand specific. I love that Wrist Twisters is an all-motorcycle welcome community.

Welcome Aboard New Potus. Yup, they let anyone join this community even people WITHOUT bikes! Not that it has anything to do with me.
