Hello I'm Richard. I hail from Victoria BC Canada. I'm 48 married 3 kids, have 30 years in the navy and have been riding for the past 20 years.

I've ridden from Alaska to New Orleans and back, Australia, India, SE Asia and Hawaii.

I have owned Learn to Ride motorcycle training school for 7 years and instructing for 16.

My fleet consists primarily of 1990-92 Honda CB250 nighthawks, an 81 CM250, 2018 Suzuki Tu250 and a 2000 Suzuki GN 250.

I look forward to using the forum to troubleshoot and help others resolve issues because its one thing to own a bike its another to be able to ride well and even more so properly take care of your bike.

The GN I bought was owned by the previous owner for 2 years. Carb was full of gunk - he didn't know about fuel system cleaners. He dumped the bike trying to push start it from the wrong side, chain drooped horribly. I look forward to using this forum to educate and promote knowledge. Having said that I'm not a great mechanic, I just know a few things and believe in sharing of knowledge. Thank you
