Now that this thread has new life, us old farts can skew the data. 71 here,and my K bike is on the lift getting the shocks removed so Ted Porter can rebuild them, new (4000 miles old) rear swing arm to take advantage of the fresh pivot bearings and a final drive that is so tight it is amazing. Refreshed fuel injectors by Mr Injector, new front wheel bearings, you name it. Darn thing will last longer than me now. The S1000R bike is still a young pup with 3000 miles on it as I traded in the 2015 for the 2017 with 5 more HP, let me tell you that think keeps the blood circulating. :surprise:
I hope to keep riding for quite a few more years, of course I can tell the difference these days. But one has to fight old age best you can.

I believe I was inbetween my R1100 and K1200 when this thread started and had no idea this forum existed. 58 now and hoping for a few more.

Wow! It looks like the age has skewed DOWN since the last time we ran this poll. The majority of votes was in the 50-54 range the last time. Now it looks like the 45-49 range has more people. Very interesting! Keep'em coming!

K1200LT riders versus the rest of the K1200 line.

Can't believe there is only one person listed in 70 to 75 age group.
Will be meeting a friend in Omaha on 7/11 and heading up to Canada for a month.
I'm 72 and he is 3 months younger than me. We each have to cover about 1,400 miles to meet up, me from Az and he from Fl.

This thread was started back in 2005 when I was a youngster at 65 years of age. As of three weeks ago I am now 79 years young and still riding. Maybe it's time for someone to start a new analysis.

Yes, it would be interesting to see the new statistic! I have also added a few years, and at 73 still riding strong! I actually just got back home from taking a 200 miles ride 0n my RT to go for lunch. Solo, as always . . . .
