I know that we have one hell of a variety of ages in here. Some of us recently stumbled on motorcycles and others were born with them. So lets see where we sit experience wise. I hope I included enough options.

I was thinking about 20 years, had to choose between 16-20 and 20-25.
About 10 years for me. Early on it was all dirt (not counting the two mopeds I had) , street for the last few.

I've got plenty of experience; just not on motorcycles.

42 years. Started riding my Dads 60's Suzuki 50 (the one with the white plastic leg guards) first in the back yard and then sneaking around town and out into the country. There was a break though when our boys were young.

Got my first bike when I was 15. Got my license at 16 and have been riding since, so that makes about 25 years. Man I feel old now.






Ah, you're still a child. Wait until your 50th birthday: you'll wake up with your teeth on the pillow in a puddle of drool. No, really. I wouldn't kid about something so serious.



My father used to talk about all the advantages of turning 80: you get to have a tremendous bowel movement every day. He said with any luck, you'd even wake up first!

I chose 6 - 10 I've had a motorcycle license for over 30 years, but didn't ride for many of them. When I was younger I lived on a bike, when the kids were growing up I got away from it.



Back in the saddle again!



I did ride bicycles seriously for several years. I feel safer on the road on a motorcycle than a bicycle.

I rode back when I was a young teen, been riding seriously for the past 2 years, after turning 52. Must be a mid life crisis.

My first regular ride was a borrowed English 2-stroke of uncertain age in 1948. Then nothing for a while. Then a brief fling with a HD 45, which I never really mastered. Then marriage and family intervened and no more biking until 1964 when I bought a Yamaha 2cylider 2 stroke to commute to work. My son learned to ride on that bike when he was 11. I kept that one until 1980 when I went into flying and selling ultralight aircraft. Seems I still had to have something on two wheels so I traded $500 worth of flying lesson to a guy for a little Suzuki - I think about 80 or 90 cc. Then my wife retired from her job and we sold out everything in B.C. and moved to Alberta. Then followed much expense and time spent restoring and remodeling an old farm house, plus landscaping and all that goes with "relaxed" country living. That was 15 years ago and it took me this long to get another ride; my GL650i. So, while I started riding 62 years ago there have been more years that I didn't ride than years that I did.
