  • How old is you and how old was you?

    Since we have a couple of threads discussing what bikes we are currently riding and considering many members are still riding ZZR's,

    I figured I'd start a thread about our current age and how old we were when we first started riding.

    I'll start:

    BIG O - 49 years old. Started riding when I was 15
    I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

    Started at 21 and now 68.
    Young riders pick a destination and go. Old riders pick a direction and go.
    A motorcycle can't sing on the streets of a city.

          So I guess this is my Golden anniversary year. Wish I still had that beautiful blue Mini Trail.

          How To Cheat on Personality Tests
          1. When asked for word associations or comments about the world, give the most conventional, run-of-the-mill, pedestrian answer possible.

          2. To settle on the most beneficial answer to any question, repeat to yourself:
          (a) I loved my father and my mother, but my father a little bit more.
          (b) I like things pretty well the way they are.
          (c) I never worry much about anything.
          (d) I don't care for books or music much.
          (e) I love my wife and children.
          (f) I don't let them get in the way of company work.

                  Turned 37 last month.

                  I was 14 the first time I road a motorcycle, an early 90s Honda XR250R. At that age I think I was 5'4". Had to lean the bike far over to get on it, then keep it that way to kickstart it. I spent a lot of time dumping the bike on the ground.

                        It’s starting to look like we are a bunch of old farts but riding keeps us young!!

                            Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.
