Just wondering about average age and careers of you riders

#1 Unread post by Ahmad1 » Sun Aug 20, 2006 12:55 pm

Hey i'm new to biking and probably will have to wait about a year before i can get one. In the meantime i was just curious to know how old the riders on these forums are, because i may have to wait many years before getting a bike. Also, wat occupations do you guys have so i can see if theres any trends to bikers. Are there any doctors out there who ride..cuz thats my career goal. Thanks in advance.

Im only 16 with no job lol. wat about u guys? plus...can any of you do weelies?

I'm 22, single, enjoy long walks on the beach, and long motorcycle rides into the sunset. I don't wheelie because I enjoy having skin. I'm a computer engineer who works on flight control systems for military and commercial aircraft.

I'm 22 and work as a software developer (web-driven database applications) and a Linux system administrator (100+ machines). I don't wheelie because I don't care what other people think when I'm out riding. 8)
