Voting age bracket does not go high enough for me. What's the meaning of this?? Trying to leave the experianced and more mature out of this! :grin2:

No, not at all Jack, most riders will have hung up there helmet and boots by your age, YOU are the exception it seems :smile2:.

The poll only allows for 10 entry's unfortunately, its great to hear a complaint such as yours, its a positive complaint.

Never TOO Old

Let this story be encouragement to us all.

I'm 31, and have been lusting after a bimmer boxer motorcycle since I was 22. Not sure why these aren't more popular with younger riders.

Maybe some have hung up their spurs, but there are a lot of us left. I am still young enough that I fit in the last category, 71.9. Been riding for 60 years next year if you only count powered two-wheeled vehicles, longer if you count bicycles.

This is ageism at its worst. We need a space for 75 to 80 yo's - like me. Now - where did I put me teef...? :grin2:

I was 25 when I bought my first BMW. I had just gotten back from Vietnam and it was a reward to myself for surviving. I have been brand loyal ever since.
