53 here and riding on/off since teen years. Don't ride enough (3 times last year including getting the shit kicked out of me at the Maine National enduro) and spend more time on the mtn. bike. Maybe this year more dirtbike riding 165 lbs, body and plumbing work great (read no Viagra needed here) but like many others the close up vision needs cheater glasses. I'll take it considering what some otheres my age already deal with.

I'm 52. Got my first bike when I was 14 (Honda SL125) and haven't been without a bike of some sort ever since, usually several. I'm enjoying riding now maybe more than I ever did - over the last 5 years or so there has been a huge increase in organised fund raiser trails rides. These are often on private land and have provided sooo many more riding opportunities.

Good post!

Well the age meter is about to roll over to 42.
But your only old as you think you are. I keep trying to think I'm 25. It's not working!

Started riding on my 10th birthday got a Yamaha TY80 trials bike to learn on then came the mx minis. Raced motocross and trail rode up until I was about 17 and then girls, party's and getting out on my own got in the way of dirt bikes.

I got back into dirt bikes when I was 31 and have rode mostly offroad since. Not much mx, just what are added to the Hare scrambles courses and a MX practice day here and there.


Huge thanks: GAS GAS OFFROAD US, Skagit Powersports, Cycle Gear, LTRacing, Scorpion Racing, users of, and CFMC!
