I am72, Ive been on motorcycles since 14. The cages have missed me so far and the foolish riding habits of my youth did not get me killed. I still ride too fast and challenge my skills in the twisties more than I should. But it seems I am as young as my ability to keep up with my younger peers. If I go out at high speed or on a curve I did not make, I will have gone out having the time of my life doing my best to be competitive.

What just happened? :histerica :histerica

I was asked to vote and the Post said #63. I ain't lying I am only 59.

Only started riding in 1979. I was told you should never ride someone else's bike unless you could afford to pay for it (my buddy). Well he let me learn to ride his and the very same day sold it to me. He is not my buddy anymore. He has been a true friend since then.

He has a K100LT the pioneer of the 1200LT and I finally got one after listening to him. I rode that one too but did not have to buy it. Why? Cause the next thing he told me was "once you buy a BMW you will never buy any other bike". So he kept his and I have mine.
ride safe :bmw:

PS: that 1st bike was a 1979 Kawasaki . . . KZ1000ST a drive shaft and a whole lot of hp

I'm 65 - have a friend in FL who is 84 & still riding his GoldWing - he does at least one 2,000 to 3,000 mile trip a year - I have slowed down some - I now ride 12, to 15,000 a year - I would think those numbers will back off - I don't get along with the heat in the summer like I use to - tom

74 last June. Got my LT today, a used one (1999) but have not ridden it yet. This is my 7th bike, I have five Honda CTs and a Yamaha Vstar 650. Been riding for about 50 years including riding M/C as a police officer. I'm a cancer survivor (throat cancer - never smoked)
