Default Average age of GG riders!!

Guys/Gals... here is a poll based on the eyesight post in the General forum:

How old are you? I'll start, I am 37.

I think the GG's are like a fine wine. When you're young you drink crappy cheap beer (jap 80/125cc)

A bit older and you think you can handle more (Jap 450/euro 525cc)

Then you get smart and you drink something that won't give you a headache in the morning. (no jap equivalent) (GG 200/250/300)

I wanted to vote twice but couldn't. I got my crusty old butt in the survey but not my 17 year old's.

I guess that's one way to look at it. Been riding for over 40 yrs. I'm 52.
My first bike was a green SL 125. Opps I guess it wasn't a XL....
I would say my GG300 is like a nice glass of Glenlivet.

38 years riding. I'll be 52 this month. My first bike was a brand new Honda SL70, for $425 out the door. It was too small for me when I got it and I rode it for 3 years!

41 years old. been riding forever, but i'm relatively new to offroad - only been riding offroad full time for 3 years (yeah, i had dirt bikes before that, but only randomly rode them, and had zero technique. i also lived in an urban area with zero offroad areas), and been racing for 2......better late than never! still trying to rid myself of bad habits i learned on the street...

52 sounds like the number, three of us so far.

I don't drink wine, prefer good beer. Not Bud either, I ride through the water that is used to make a lot of that swill.

Just turned 50. Caught the motorcycle bug at 10; the neighbor had a z50 which didn't run. They said that if i could get it to run, i can ride it. (long before law schools opened enrollment to anyone.) Try that now.

That led to a used 1971 SL100, which led to an obsession which hasn't yet abated.

I bicycle commute about 3000 miles per year, run at least 30 miles per week, and feel really good. Bones still heal pretty well. The brain seems fine. No medication. My only really problem is going from great vision (20/10) to not being able to see well up close. I guess I have to deal with it. Other than that, all seems good.

I drink maybe 2 beers (no swill) per month, and smoke 2 cigars per year. That's it for vices.
