My big love is the R6, but I'll always have a little crush on the nakeds... I have the pleasure of being part of the Motortourer team and I deal with all the marketing-related issues. Feel free to add me as a Motortourer friend and/or contact me if you have any comments or simply want to chat about bikes; I'm always in for that!
