G'day all

Been riding since I was 17, learned on my late mate's Suzuki A100 two stroke. As I am now approaching 53 that makes it (wait till I get the plastic brain out) 36 years with a break of 5 years. My first missus wouldn't let me ride.

Call it 30 years. ain't life grand.

Keep the black rim protectors on the black stuuf and stay upright.

Fearless :D

Started when I was 7 on a Honda 'Amigo' but I had to wait till I was 8 to get my 1st bike, a Honda 'Mini-Trail'!

SO....that makes 36 years....Cool!

4 months 5,000 miles and counting. I pass MSF course in December start riding ever since. I plan to take ERC course right after 6 months period due to stat about a big percentage of accident with 6 month to 2 years experience rider.

Well, I started 37 years ago on a 1960 something Honda Sport 50 (unless you count the Taco 22 mini-bike I rode when I was ten). Lots of bikes came after that 'till I hit my mid-30s, then I took eleven years off. I had been commuting by bike for years, when I finally decided that EVERYONE in a car was trying to kill me!

After the eleven years passed, I had calmed down and really wanted to ride again, and bought myself the Bonneville. So, that makes 26 years actually riding.

13 years here- boy they just fly by when you're having fun! When I started EVERYONE told me that all riders have an accident in the first 5 years. Still waiting! Anyone else hear that one?


PS Did I just jinx myself?

This question reminds me of another, that being: How long have you worked here.
The answer is: Ever since they threatened to fire me.
Ha ha.

32 years (on and off road)

36 years this year, and I am only 42. Started on a Honda 50 Mini trail and been on two wheels ever since. Now riding an 07 Heritage Classic Softail. Best bike I ever had!
