Cool Good morning from London, England

Hi all.

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Steve, a loveable, strangely addictive 25 year old 'motorcyclist' (not a "biker") from London, England.

I've been riding since October 2007, and bought my first bike and current steed, a '07 Kawasaki VN900 Custom in the December of that year.
I've spent a bit too much money on customising it, but all the chrome doesn't stop me from riding in all weathers as we get a lot of weather here!

I've racked up about 13500 miles so far, mostly on weekend rides. I've ridden to France and Belgium in continental Europe, and I've ridden up to Scotland too as part of an Iron Butt.
I'm treating my cruiser like a tourer, and I love it I couldn't be happier with my choice in bike, my newfound hobby, plus all the wonderful newfound friends that come with being a part of such awesome forums like this one.

My hobbies include motorcyles, cars, riding/driving, computer games, facial hair growing, sleeping, eating and going to the gym.

Oh, I can't seem to make an avatar... i keep getting "upload failed" or "invalid URL" ?????

For those of you who don't know... this is my humble 900 Custom:

Thanks Joe.
I'm having trouble setting an avatar, but hoping that'll sort itself out in time.
