Personal motto:

If you don't ride in the rain, you don't ride

Florin likes things with wheels: cars, motorcycles, even huge vans. He sold his car some time ago and went for just two wheels... it seemed enough. Bikes are a lot of fun and adding a motor makes things even nicer.

Florin will race you up the hill on a motorbike and at the top, no matter if it's you or him who got there first, he'll meet you with a smile.

He just likes the road and enjoys the ride. It's all about the road and ride; and another nice story to tell when you get back home in one piece.
