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:

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.

I've been riding for 48 years.

Some of those down on the farm before I had a license!

A lot of the bikes in the beginning were smaller 90cc, 125cc, 150cc and low power output....but it was fun!

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.

G'day, here's one for you, how old

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].
