Greetings from North Jersey -Racer turned Sport Tourer

Hey All! Greetings from Northern NJ. I recently picked up an '07 Triumph Sprint ST 1050 ABS with the intention to put down some serious pavement mileage this year so I figured it was time to find a Triumph forum and join it. My dad just picked up a K1300GT so of course I had to get something to do long mileage treks with. My supermoto or rc51 don't do well over the 150 mile range. I had an '01 ZRX 1200 that was great fun but decided to step it up this time around. I haven't even had the chance to use the bike yet with the snow on the ground but I've already added a set of genmar risers (I'm 6'2") and a zero gravity double bubble windscreen. (the racer in me knows the benefit!). Here's some pictures of the bike!

I have been street riding for 16 years (since I was 17) and raced in CCS, LRRS and ASRA for a number of years. In 2006 I won 7 class championships aboard an ex-factory Yamaha R6 racebike and also finished on the podium at Daytona in the CCS Team Challenge race (one of my greatest accomplishments). I instructed with www.teampromotion.com for a number of years. I also owned my own performance and service shop for several years. I mostly took care of racers and track guys and still do for a few key customers. I do more tire and wheel service than anything and would be glad to take care of anyone in the North Jersey area. I'm not a major business or retailer, just someone who still owns some expensive tire equipment and does some sidework here and there still cause I can.

Besides that, I'm a volunteer and paid EMT. I do underwater Dive Repair work during spring-fall. I teach CPR & BLS for Healthcare professionals and also teach Diving 1st-Aid and Medicine for Scuba Divers.

I enjoy supermoto, track days, the outdoors and am pretty much an all-around adrenaline junky with a big, charitable heart. I recently came back from Haiti where I was part of a medical team that treated 2400 people in one week. Check out my website at www.helpmehelphaiti.com for pics and info on the trip.

Feel free to drop a line or say hello!

Cheers,
Eric
