Welcome to my website. I’ve created this site to share my experience with motorcycles. I’ve been riding since the age of 13 riding friends dirt bikes and mini bikes. I owned my first motorcycle at the age of 18. It was a 1973 Honda CB200 that a neighbor had given me. It was in part and pieces and had to be put back together. But it was mine and really got me into riding. Fast forward to 1989 I bought a 1989 Yamaha Route 66. This was a 250 V Twin that I owned for many years. In 1999 I had a bad back injury that kept me from riding for many years. In 2016 my back finally felt like I was able to start riding again. I didn’t want to spend a lot on money on a new bike because I wasn’t sure if I could ride again, so I purchase a new inexpensive Chinese bike for $1,100. A RPS Hawk 250. It was shipped to my house in a crate. All I had to do was assemble the bike and get it registered and tagged. I ran across a forum call Chinariders.net. This is where I first learned about the bike. I became a member with the screen name of JerryHawk250. From there it became a habit with all the modifications to make it a better bike. Next thing you know I’m doing write-ups and making videos of the bike. I was hooked and there was no turning back. lol Over the years I ended up a bike a year just because it was so much fun building and modifying these inexpensive bikes. In 2019 I purchased a Venom X22R 250. This had to be the most fun modifying. I’ve done everything from porting the head, installing a high compression piston and cam. Next was the 2020 Venom Ghost Chopper 250. This was a nice little cruiser style bike. In 2022, I bought a Kawasaki Vulcan S 650. This is the bike i ride the most and is probably my favorite. Imagine riding a cruiser that handles like a sport bike. This is it. That same year I purchase the Lifan KPX 250. This was by far the highest quality Chinese bike I’ve ever purchased, The KPX has a full 250cc engine with a 6 speed transmission and fuel injected. All the previous bikes were 5 speed with a carburetor. My last bike is the Venom E-Vader. I bought this bike to bring camping. I want something I could ride around the campground and take short rides around town. The next bike i have my eyes on is the Lifan KPT 400. This will be an adventure style bike that should arrive in the US some time early spring of 2024.

Hope everyone enjoys the new website. I’ll be constantly updating the site so be patient. Also please make sure to check out my You Tube Channel. Link at the top of the page. I’ve made videos on all of the bikes and there mods.
