Considering I was born in the Reagan decade I guess that would make me one of the youngest...

Long-in-the-tooth and loving it!

I am now 68 and have been riding Beemers for 35years. I'm on my second KLT now and plan on wearing out a couple more before I'm finished. My riding buddy (for over 50 years - he's 70) and I did an Edelweiss Alps tour last August and loved every mile of it......planning on Rome to Sicily next.
Ride safe and long.

Congrats! That is what my dad did, retired from professional riding (press) and kept riding smaller bikes just for fun.

Yeeech; how do you conclude that?
The largest single segment in the survey is 45-49, but with 50-59 and 40-44 contributing to the curve. Last I checked, no gray here ... in fact, my doc said to go for it every hour on the hour while awake! My wife agrees !!! :eek: Must have been the high speed flying ... balls to the wall ...

If that (40-49, or... even 40-59) is old ... then, perhaps, I should stop teaching martial arts, hiking up and flying my paraglider, riding my bicycle, skiing, (quit long-distance running just about four years ago), certainly turn in my badge (although I passed the last PT / but the 26 yo I ran with did NOT) and MOST Certainly trade in my 1150 for something more akin to a gentleman of my gathering dusty years ... you see, I clock in at 59! :cool:

It may not be old, but it sure makes you older than I. :histerica

It was interesting to see just how few LT owners there were in my age group (33). I wasn't surprised since my "peer group" seems to gravitate towards either crotch-rockets or cruisers (HDs, mostly). But I want to ride with the Mrs and she doesn't want to ride her own. That landed us smack-dab in the LT, GL or UCEG market. The LT, at least to me, was the obvious choice of the three.

52 and (not) counting.
No gray balls. Yet.
The way my 20-year old son is drooling over the LT (So! Dad! How's the old ticker, anyway? Feel fine?) we may get a very young member one of these days.

I'm thinking that the poll is over 2 years old, nearing 3. Would the entire population shift or with some leaving and newer folks joining change the distribution?

Hmmmm.....

I'm 44 for a few more weeks, then I move up in to the largest percentage of members who have voted.

45 is whats on my license, but it drops by half when I'm on my LT! Seems a few gray hairs blow away every time I run her down the road. Fortunately I'm still replacing those!

73...and bought my very first bike, an '03 LT and two weeks later put 3000 miles on it. Greatest (or at least one of the greatest) experiences of my life. Loved every minute of it.

I turned 75 last month. This is my first post to this forum. I just bought a 2003 R1150RT-P last month. It is BMW number 4 for me. Previously I owned a 500, built in the early 50's, a 1972 R75/5 bought new by me in Germany and a 650 with Earls Fork. I sold the first one in 1963 and the other two the same day to the same person in 1987. So far, I am enjoying the R1150RT-P. I hope it will be as good and reliable as the other three were.

I just voted and just as I figured, I'm above average :)
Mr. Silver Buffalo:
I'm on the down side of the bell curve.
