I'm 31 in August.  Started riding random junk dirt bikes, don't even know what they were because they were just that junked out that parts were missing, painted, jimmy rigged, etc, when I was about 9 or 10.  Didn't get my first "real" bike till I was 23.  It was an FZR600R, which was replaced by a GSXR1100 when it's oil pump went out at 8K.  Sold the Gixxer because I knew she was going to be the death of me and picked up my 77 kz650 three years ago.  She's been my only ride until this past year when I picked up the 81 kz650 (which is getting sold to finish funding the cafe build on the 77).

45.  My first motorized 2 wheeler was a mini-bike when I was 11.  Rode friends dirtbikes, mostly Hodakas until I got my first real bike, my brothers old Ossa 250(wish I had it now!)  Rode a few different bikes from 1977 to 1990, including 3 years in Germany(great riding in Europe ;D).  Started again in 2000 with my XS650, added my XS850 in 2006.

Just turned 37 today May 16th.
Got my licence when I was 19 on  80cc honda elite  which I rode for several years .
Then I got a suzuki waterbuffalo for a number of years blue with highway bars heavy as all hell. Had a 82 yamaha virago for a number of years and most rescently my 73 tx650 I just finished building last fall, Still working out the bugs but having a lot of fun in the process. Hope to have by the end of the year 50cc honda or yamaha scooter to get back and forth to work. I work 1 1/2 miles from my house. My gas bill will really be nothing then.

With that commute, you can walk!

I'll be 53 in July!  :o  I don't act or feel that old most days!  ;)

I started riding back in high school on friends bikes. My folks wouldn't let me get a bike! I had to wait until I was out of my parents house!

First bike was a '74 Kawi H2 back in the spring of '77. Only rode it for the 1 season 'cause I traded it for a new KZ1000 in September of '77. I still have the KZ, but it looks a little different now!  ;D

I currently have another '74 H2, which is for sale, a '76 KZ900 and have started a new Tracy H2 project.
