Actually, considering their closer proximity, the Russians are more likely to come marauding down from the north than the Chinese. But I think the main reason it hasn't happened yet and probably never will is that we're real short on parking spaces here.

I think it is the other way around. As predicted by Trey Parker, there will come a day when Canada and North America become friends, this is the day that Gummi will make a run for it through Alaska, hence all the training he has been doing, and will knock on the ruskies door shouting, lookee here, I love you.

Always good to hear from older riders, dobber (older than me, that is!) Gives us all hope.

Iam 67 just got my license last spring. I got into bikeing last year because because I hadn't done it before and looked like something I would enjoy. ( good decision ) as I have enjoyed a year of it. I'am a retired millwright,crane operator, stock car driver and now a part time truck driver which pays for my bike and riding. I haven't made up my mind yet what I want to be when I grow up.

Twenty-four in a week. Been riding for, two days now, if you don't count the MSF class :D. I am currently unemployed, studied International Studies and History in university. I have worked on and off for years for a concrete company, first in quality control and then in their building materials store (in sales), and worked at Papa John's as a manager (I went 62 days last summer without a day off, then cut back to six days a week :D). I quit both to move to Russia and pursue teaching English as a second language. Got my certificate, did not get a job right away, decided if I had to return to the states anyway I might as well job-search for a career where I can make money, rather than search for a job teaching English that will pay room + $12k a year. Just hooked up with a recruiter, he thinks I will be in sales or marketing in two to four weeks :D. That sure would be nice :D.

I'm 54. I've been riding a little under 3 years and have about 50,000 miles/80464 kilometers in that time. I'm an author and a research professor at a think tank.

48.. Corporate IT Project Manager

Always wanted to learn to ride but had a ER nurse Mom and then got married with children so it was put off.
This year I decided since the kids were in college and I had the opportunity to inherit my father in laws Harley that it was time.

Young enough to remind myself if I keep working out and training the body I can relearn how to shoot some decent laps at the motocross track and do some cross country riding and racing.

But old enough to remind myself that mistakes can become broken bones and concussions that will slow me down in bigger ways -- a quick sudden STOP...

So it's all going to be about cranking up the strength and fitness, and lots of work on the riding technique... and some cross training on mini-roadracers :-) and cycling, hiking and climbing... wear's the ol' chalk bag?

focus focus focus, relax and ride.... then crank it up as I go...

well I would think the age of 22 would be incorrect since he would have started riding at 17 but then again maybe the poster is including time riding dirt bikes?

I work for a state government office and I don't do much all day except making copies for somebody else, I make $71K per year and the only reason I have that job is for my good looks and perfect body so the women can look at and dream about me all day.

I'm 47. I'm a web developer and graphic designer. I don't wheelie - but, I have done an accidental stoppie :)
