Glad to be here (:

I'm just gonna lay it all out.

My name is Raiko Inazuma Williams. Raiko is a handle I used for my online characters when I game. Its spelled 雷子 in Japanese and it translates to Thunder kid/child. Inazuma is 稲妻 and translates to lightning, or flash of lightning. When I came out as trans I tried using a play off my deadname which ended up being Chanelle, but I didn't like it and ultimately went with a name I was already comfortable with.

I'm 30yo, and ever since I was little I've had an obsession with speed, planes, and motorcycles. I actually brought the movie Top Gun to show and tell when I was in kindergarten (planes and motorcycles all in one!). I wasn't allowed to ride motorcycles until I was on my own, so I left at 19 to join the Air Force. I started riding at 18 and just kept it hidden at a friend's house. I've been riding for 12 years and have had multiple bikes.

2001 GSXR1000 (friends, what I learned to ride on)
2002 GSXR750 (my first actual bike, didn't keep it longer than 3months)
2005 CBR600RR (had it 2012 to Dec 2015 got hit by a car)
2008 CBR1000RR (traded it for my 2nd CBR600RR)
2011 CBR600RR (trackbike)
2020 S1000RR (streetbike)

Combined I'd say I have maybe over 100,000 miles of riding. My CBR1000RR was over 100k on the odometer but not all of it was mine. And my S1000RR is at 18k now. I'm not sure how many miles I put on my other bikes.

I did 7years 3months active duty in the Air Force as a mechanic, and now I work for United Airlines doing the same thing. 1 tour to Afghanistan.

I have a little corgi named Ein. Which is German for 1. His name is because of the corgi from an anime called Cowboy Bebop. When i have freetime I enjoy watching anime. Anime was actually probably the first time I ever felt jealous because of gender, and in the 90s as a kid I didn't understand what I was feeling, until I left home.

Sooo all my thoughts are super disorganized right now and I'm more than sure I'm forgetting things I wanted to say. But if anyone wants to ask any questions I'm an open book.
