Well, my name is George, my nicknames are various but include "Boomer", "BFG", "Mr. G", "Fatty" and many more of a more or less insulting nature. In the world of the Kawasaki GTR1000/1400GTR/Concours/Concours14 and it's devotees I am more commonly referred to as "Boomer" but I answer to just about anything that's said in a friendly way.
I am, as you may have guessed,
a total GTR1000/1400GTR nutcase/addict/junkie/weirdo/geek. I own several of them and see no
reason why I should stop there. I love them for a wide variety of reasons but
the dominant one is that they are big and can accommodate my 6'4" 350lb
frame and still let me pretend I am a fast motorcycle rider. The GTR1000 is a fast,
comfy, decent handling machine that is good at many things but has (like all
good machines) it's little weirdness's and quirks. It also has a motor that just
loves to scream it's head off and I take great delight in giving it some serious
thrashing. About the only bike that could possibly wean me off the GTR1000 would
be a GTR1200/1300 so,..
Kawasaki have introduced the 1400GTR,... and I have one,... and I love it! <BigGrin>
I am 44 years old, with a mental age of 16, and while I can get all serious about some things, I tend to treat the world and life as a big joke. I'm what I like to call a "Realist" but most Optimists refer to us as Pessimists. My attitude is that I always expect the worst from any situation. That way when the worst happens I was prepared for it,.... and when it doesn't it's a PLEASANT surprise. This tends to make me a mostly happy person. <VeryBigGrin>
