Re: Oh NOoooooo!!!!

Welcome to the club! I can still remember turning 50. I wonder how long that will last.

Re: Oh NOoooooo!!!!

yep - I hit 50 this past February. Personally, I like it better than 49 - such a weird number! Think of 50 as the start of the second half - just don't do the math!

CWS's suggestion to take a ride is a good one. In April I completed an Iron Butt "50CC" (cross-country in 50 hours or less) to celebrate, and this past weekend turned 50,000 miles on the LT.

You're still in the game so keep playing - Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday Steve. It's better than dying.

Well there go the demographics for owners of LTs: it's now become the official bike of old, experienced riders who appreciate the finer things in life. Thanks a lot, Steve.

Re: Oh NOoooooo!!!!

You are older than DIRT!

But you've still got 4 years on me. and if you can read type this small you're still doing pretty good.


Happy Birthday - and you should really consider some cosmetic surgery, dood.

Happy Birthday!

Judging by the picture on your BMWLT profile, you certainly have aged well!

Seriously: Congrats man. I had the same misgivings about hitting the 40 a couple years ago. (How old is 40 in dog years?)
