I'm bumping up to 48 shortly, been riding for 35 years, first bike was 1979 Can Am 175 qualifier, raced off and on for 11 years for places to ride in southeast Pa., gave up riding for 6 years after moving to Colorado, my wife was the first to want/get a GG 300 (I got one a year later), and I started trail riding again seriously the last 3 years. My eyes are going as the lights get dimmer (sigh) but still don't need glasses. No major injuries, no stitches, no broken bones...I gave up my major vice recently (Mountain Dew) and switched to Diet Dew (another sigh) trying to lose weight gained since marriage. Never drank, never smoked. I ride with folks 18 years younger and 25 years older so I think I have many more years ahead of me! Can't wait until this riding season gets into full swing in Colorado!

2014 GG 300 Racing E
2002 ATK 605 Dual Sport
1974-86 Vintage Can Ams, SWMs, Puchs, etc.

Turned 41 this year and been riding off/on since 10 years old. My parents took me to "Sidewinders" , a local flat track race venue, when I was 1 week old! My uncle raced flat track for several years. I have been infatuated with motorcycles ever since. Raced a few harescrambles and enduros over the years, but mostly just trail ride with my family and friends, which for me, brings the biggest smiles. One major "get-off" at 18 yrs. old which resulted in 2 broken wrists, a surgery, many stitches in my face and a week long hospital stay. No health issues now, just 20 lbs. overweight and love my wifes cookies. I still like to mix it up with the younger crowd from time to time, just to show 'em how it's done!

Started on a Sears catalog mini-bike w/ Briggs and Stratton 5hp engine. I thought I was pretty hot on that mini-bike and rode the wheels off of it. My first "real" dirtbike was a 1976 Honda XL250.

The List is long:
Yamaha IT175, IT490, WR250, WR450
Honda XL250, XR500, XR250, XR400, CR480
Kawi KDX200, KDX220
Suzuki DRZ400
KTM 200, 250, 300 EXC
Gasgas EC250 ('03)

I love my '05 DE300 Gasser and it fits my needs just fine. Cant see going with anything else!

I will be 60 in June.....doesn't seem possible!
I have tried to live my life with the intent of not having any regrets when the time comes. I think I have pretty much achieved that. I have had way, way too many bikes to list in my 45years of riding. I have had a DKW/with leading link forks, two Bultaco Pursangs, two Pentons, two Huskys, loads of Yamahas and Kawasakis, a couple of Hondas, even an Aprilia trials bike! My last two new dirt bikes have been GG's. I have raced in many states and Mexico and have done pretty well. Yep, no regrets....well, let me just say that I have a little regret for one of those Bultacos....the 125 sucked, the 250 was
the best MX bike I ever had!

I've had those. My sister-in-law got me a micro brew club membership for Christmas, where they send you two types of beer from two different breweries every couple months. Some good stuff. For the mass produced stuff I think Canada has us whipped, right Scotty? Like that stuff.

My bikes over the years, spanning some time off periods:

'71 Rupp mini bike
'72 Kawasaki G5 100
'74 Yamaha YZ125
'76 Bultaco 370 Pursang
'76 Yamaha 650 (street)
'79 Suzuki GS1000 (street)
'81 Honda CR250
'83 Yamaha IT490
'86 Kawasaki KDX200
'87 Husky 510
'96 Honda XR400
'98 KTM 200 EXC
'99 KTM 300 EXC
'00 GasGas XC250
'03 GasGas EC250
'07 GasGas EC/DE 250
'08 Ducati Hypermotard 1100 (street)

Next? Maybe a 300 soon, still thinking about it. I race less, ride steep nasty stuff more. It might fit the bill better than it used too.
