My name is Jack, aka flickmeister, aka ILAKSMU (Illustrious Leader and All Knowing Soothsayer of the Motorcycle Universe), aka pompous ass. Been riding 44+ years, mostly hard core sportbikes since 1978 when I bought a Zuk GS1000E. Spent several years roadracing, a few drag racing, and eight as a MSF instructor. Have attended three of Keith's California Superbike Schools, two CLASS schools, and one of Ulrich's Team Hammer Schools. I also taught the new rider's school when I was racing with the FGPRA (Florida Gran Prix Rider's Assoc., now defunct).

My current ride is a 2006 Gixxer Thou'. Absolutely the best motorcycle I have ever owned. It does everything so incredibly well. It's comfortable enough for me to sport tour the country as it comes from the factory, either on one wheel or two, your choice (I'd pick two, I'm old and suck at wheelies). So smooth, so easy to get along with, until you twist that last 1/8th turn of the throttle. At that point, you better have a damn good idea where you are headed. Talk about Jekyll & Hyde, cheeeez......

I still seek out any information I can get my grubby little mitts on that may improve my riding or make it more fun. I have tried to be a student of the sport as both a learner and teacher. I am a 60 year old highly over-opinionated treacherous old fart. Most importantly, my lithium has been on back-order for six weeks now. I think I'm doing pretty damned well considering, but ya just never know when you'll hit that wall and go over the edge.....
