Yep, that's me.... 46 years old and riding around just waiting to get maself kilt on that there big ole bike. Come on, that statement you made is accurate, as far as it goes.wheels said:I agree with weapon x. There are a lot of 40 plus guys who have never owned a motorcycle but have always wanted one. So they go to the dealer get a big bike big cc and really dont have any experience with handeling a bike that big. Hopefully they will learn quickly before becoming a statistic.
Now, THAT does sound like a older idiot playing the fool!!!!kymedic said:And the whole older riders starting out without any experience is also something to think about. Last fall worked a single vehicle MVC where the rider of a brand new HD just didnt make a curve. Speed wasnt a factor he just had little riding experience and panicked. Luckily he landed in soft mud and only suffered a broken clavicle and 1 very bruised ego. He had just paid $25000 cash for his big new HD. Totalled with 22 miles on it.
