I'm 76 and no bracket was provided! What the heck. Have been riding since 11 years old. You can do the math. Not sure what the OP has in mind here or is trying to prove, enlighten us.

WOW!!! 66 years, very very impressive and respectable!

re: There is nothing to prove here... Just a topic...Every thing in life, particularly vehicles, being that with four or two wheels, when designed, created, manufactured, and sold has a target market.

As an example "Starbucks' primary target market is men and women aged 25 to 40. They account for almost half (49 percent) of its total business. Starbucks' appeal to this consumer age group through hip, contemporary design that is consistent in its advertising and decor, and working to keep its products current as status symbols."

Since R1200R target market is not publicized or readily available, it was proposed to create a poll where members can, without prejudice,
share their age. That's it!

After all, you can treat lots of topics on any forum with the same attitude: "What is the reason" or "What are you trying to prove". Nothing, there is no reason, just a topic for conversation.

Cheers
Steve

Thanks for the explanation. I know several here in my area that are still riding after 80. One is Tex Earnhardt who owns the Earnhardt car dealer ships. He was 85 in Dec. My kind of guy!

I am 31 years old. This is my 17th motorcycle since the age of 16 when I got my very first bike, a Yamaha DT50. Of all the bikes I have owned, this one is by far the best all rounder.

I can't do the poll as there isn't a bracket/button for me to click. So I've been excluded :crying:. Why..................:surprise::)

I don't know how to answer. When I'm off the bike, I am 60; when I'm on the bike I'm 20.

I'm happy, there are 2 more brackets for me to go!!!
But there should be brackets going up to 120 just so people don't feel like they're at 'THE END'
And who knows, we may find the target age range is about 110! ;)

There aren't so many younger bikers these days due to the hoops they have to jump through to get a licence. I've noticed when out most bikers are middle age & over, but watching them ride you'd think 30's.
When we all roll off the conveyor belt, will biking come to an end?

Poll Options

The poll options only allowed for 10.

I umm'ed and aaaa'ed about which age bracket of 5's I was going to drop off, I was not going to assume, so I dropped one off each end.

Do include yourself in on either end, closest to the age you are though.

Which ever end...your in my mind.
