I'm 40 and ride a '01 R1. Took the MSF class in August of '05 and started riding in October of '05. Proud to be the top finisher in the class. Was shocked too when the instructor called my name because there were younger ones and more experienced riders in the class. I had no experience whatsoever prior to going to the class. I now have over 44,000 miles under my belt. Could have been a lot more if I don't work 6 days a week 8-10 hours a day. Not to mention snow days. I'm probably one of the oldest around here. We'll see. I'm telling you guys and gals, I will keep riding sportbike until my body says "NO". I said that because I've ridden 825 miles in one day (over 14 hours) and didn't have a problem with it. The only thing I can say is when I'm out riding, I feel like a teen. Sportbike changed my life for the better. It just feels so good when people waive at you, smile at you, talk to you, etc. Nothing like it. It's a therapy. Working 6 days a week and having two kids is no easy task. But when I get on that bike, stress goes away. My favorite thing to do is 100 miles before breakfast. I'm telling you, there's nothing like starting your day that way. Funny, a lot of times, I feel like keep going. I was like...why do I have to come to work this morning? Sorry if I posted longer reply than I should. I guess I'm just glad to be one of you guys who love riding sport bike eventhough I'm older than most of you here. Hope you don't mind.

I'm a young 57. After I blew up the engine on my CBR, I've been riding my GS1000. I bought the GS when I was in my 20's. My first four-stroke after riding two-stroke street bikes for eight years.

I'm 40.5, and currently ride an '05 GSX-R600. I had a CT70 as a child. Then started riding street bikes for real in '89, though my ex-hubby (BF at the time) tried to teach me to ride in '83 on a Kawi H1 500 Triple. That didn't work out so well.

I'm 42, My first motorbike was a 125cc Victa Lawnmower motor in a tubuler steel frame, no suspension and about 9 inch wheels. I was 8. In total, the number of years that I haven't owned a bike of some description since that time falls at 3.

So.... 31 years on bikes

I was born in 1894. My first motorcycle ran on steam. We called them tweelers back then, short for "two wheelers".

I was present at the births of both Jonathan Suzuki and Robert Honda in their hometowns of Skokie Illinois and Lansing Michigan respectively.

More interesting facts about me;
I invented highsiding. I termed them Jingle Whoppers. The name did not stick. We did them for fun and profit as panhandlers on the streets of Paris.

Eddie Lawson, Freddie Spencer and Wayne Rainey may have pioneered dragging your knee but I pioneered going around corners for I invented Handlebars. Prior to that motorcycles were controlled by kites and a series of sails.

I caught Harley banging Davidsons wife. I brought the two men together and told them if they wished to recover from such a scandal they would have to create motorcycles that combine a severe lack of power with a laughably high prices. They were men of their words.

I took a 300 pound sailors wife home from a bar one night right after the second world war, ruining the front forks and stretching them forward severely. Several journalists saw this before I had a chance to fix this and termed it a "chopper".

My brother Bartholomew invented the clutch. Prior to this advancement we would wear metal gloves and reach into the hot engine to switch between gear ratios. We were faster shifting than any modern day race replica and have the nubs to prove it.
