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.
The Kawasaki Line-Up:

"Keepin' the Good Times Rolling"

STREET:
'02 zrx1200r "DailyRider"
'05 zx10r "RetroLookRacer"
'77 kz1000/zx10r "Superbike"  

PLAY:

TRACK:
'81 GPz/kz550 "TrackBike"

FOR SALE or GONE:
'75 s1-250 Triple "Survivor" 4 Sale

Im 31, turn 32 in August.

 My first bike was a lil Kawi 80cc trail bike. Dunno the model, as I was 5 and cant remember that far back most days..lol Since then i have owned a myriad of dirtbikes, my fav being an old KX250 my dad gave me. Wasnt the biggest or fastest dirtbike ever, but man i had a blast on that thing. I also broke many bones and added a few scars to my body on it and other dirt bikes. My FIRST street bike, which i had for a matter of months untill i decided i was WAY too big for it, or it was too small for me, on or the two, was a Yammie 185cc, dont remember the designation. I shortly thereafter bought a 76 Honda CB550SS, and shortly after that a 77 CB750SS. Both of which became my first "cafe" bikes. All cosmetic changes, simple stuff like bars and seat changes. No mechanical differences except for pods and a pipe. I quit riding for a number of years back in 01-ish, sold both the Hondas off (man i kick myself now for selling them as cheap as i did. I think i sold them BOTH for a total of 1500 bucks and they were GOOD lookin bikes, vintage market wasnt great back then tho either) Over the past year and a half or so, I started riding again. I picked up a lil KZ440 to get my legs back under me on. Then i scored an XS400 reeaaaly cheap (75 bucks) Both of which i still have. I also have the 77 GS750B cafe im working on, and a GS1100G. In August i will have delivered a GS1100GK (the full touring GS) and have plans on picking up a couple of projects for the winter at the Walnecks show that month.

I love em, bikes, and cant get enough. I would like someday to own a Bandit 1200, or a TL1000R but thats probably about the extent of my MODERN bike list. Maybe a "oldschool" looking Triumph or Duc, but im not big into the modern stuff.

27, turn 28 in a couple weeks.

I've been riding for 8 years.  Started on an '85 FJ600, '98 Katana 600, '85 XL600R, '00 CBR929rr, and my current project is a '78 CB750ss.

I've been teaching the bike course at Durham College for 3 years now.  The CB is going to be my street bike this season, and the CBR will be on track duty.

Who Isn't!

Is it creepier for a 23 year old to say that or a 40 yr old? hahaha

It takes decades to develop the proper creepiness...

I'm 41 going on 25. My first bike was a an XL175 at age 14, when I finally got my mc license 2 years later I found a XL350 and then it was on! It just kept going from there, had a cb450, cb550, then a nighthawk 450 and later a 750, to a Hurricane 1000 and then a 600 f3. But sadly stopped there about 9 years ago when I witnessed a friend wreck his Duc 748 and do some serious damage to himself. Thought I was done for good until I discovered the cafe style machines earlier this year, it's as if I was 14 again discovering 2 wheeled power for the first time and man I am once again consumed by the passion and obsession that is 2 wheeled freedom!
