Hello and welcome to my little corner of the web. My name is Matt Brown and I'm a self confessed motorcycle fanatic based in the United Kingdom. I had fancied getting a motorbike ever since my sister bought one (no idea what make it was) in the mid nineties, but had procrastinated about it until one grey miserable October evening. I was watching Mad Max, the original Australian movie starring everybody's favourite crazy man Mel Gibson and then it struck me. I knew what I had to do and two weeks later I was on my DAS course at North London Motorcycle training in Burnt Oak. Three weeks and one failed test later, I passed. Since then there has been no turning back. The motorcycle lifestyle had me hook, line and sinker. I hope this website/blog thing, will give others some insight into my motorcycle life and experiences. I'm learning new things everyday, adding photos, blog entries and reviews of my kit and bikes. My opinions are my own and totally un-biased. I'm currently riding a black 2008 Ducati 1098s and after owning a Honda Hornet, a Kawasaki Zx7R, Z1000 and a Ducati Monster 695 I'm also riding a lovely CBR954RR FireBlade. Thanks for looking around, I hope you get some level of enjoyment out of the my musings.
