Smile Greetings! Now the fun starts...!

Hi everybody!
My name is Phil and I'm new to the site....

I live in the north of England and have loved everything 2 wheeled since I was 5! I bought my first bike 6 days after legally being allowed to own one in '86, it took another 14 years before I bought my first car! I rode 365 days a year no matter what the weather! In 1999 I bought a new YZF R6 and when I went to trade it in 18 months later no one would take it because it had done 34000 miles!
I started racing in 2001 on an ex factory FZR400 built for Steve Hislop (RIP) to race at the IOM TT, then a CBR600 and finally on an R1, after a few off's it was time to retire however I am the race control officer for our local race club and also a national instructor for novice road race riders.
After not owning a road bike for 6 yrs I have just bought a '95 YZF750R to play on in the summer. I want to try and improve it with any ex-factory or kit parts that i can get my hands on, so if you have any.....

Despite the cost of living, its surprising how popular it remains!!!
