54 - Here soon to be double nickels. Got my first mini bike in 1970 , first street bike in 1977 and been riding ever since. And hoping for many more. Got lucky and found a wife that loves to be on the back seat everytime we can.
65. Got the 1st Honda in Tallahassee, Fla. in 1964, a 150cc. Didn't even have a Honda shop in the city. At the time, it seemed to be really cool! Went to a 250 Scrambler, then a 305 Superhawk. Now, that was a fast bike!! Been thru Harleys, Yamahas, Suzukis, a Kawasaki, and now in love with my '07 1300S! I do feel old, but I'm hanging in.......:doorag:
I'm 63, started riding when I was 14 years old, stopped for 25 years but got back in the saddle in 2005 and have logged over 100,000 miles since. I plan on riding
untill I can't hold one up anymore then trike it and ride some more!
Hi Guys just joined this forum and thought I would introduce myself. I'm 51 and originally from NSW but after retiring from the Army after 32 years now live in Adelaide. I have been riding for about 20 years. My first cruiser was the VTX 750 shadow and upgraded to the VTx 1300s in 2006. And love the bike so much I have set it up to pull a trailer. Hope to meet up with fellow VTX riders in SA.
been told by my loving grandson that I'm older than dirt,maybe because I told him I used to babysit Moses. Been riding for a lot of years, why I remember one time on my first bike I almost wiped out trying to dodge a large clump of dinosuar ***** !!!...lol

45 yrs old and riding since 1980.
Rode a GS750 and CB450A (auto) from Indianapolis and Vegas in 2012. Had a ball.
1200 purchase in Muncie and Indianapolis (2 x bikes)and sold for 500 ea in Vegas. So worth it. Anywhere you can buy beer in a Chemist has to be good.
Well, it's been just over a year since i posted the above, i hope every one are well and still riding, in which i reckon most of us are, So here we go; We have 7 steel plate arses riders in their 60's, and 15 hard arse riders in their 50's, and we have 6 shovel bums in their 40's ,and we have 4 pyjama pants in their 30's and we have 2 nappy's in their 20's, Most of us have riden several bikes in our life time, and im surprised that we have a quite a few riders in their 60's inwhich is brilliant, as i said last year i had placed the above on request from another person on another association, how ever , all information has gone, so as i said i don't know where this will take us, can someone further this or build on this information, knees to the breeze, Greg, [spidrfire].
