My wife saw the shirt and asked what the age span was of our forum. So here's a quick survey, participate if you wish. I'm not trying to be noisy, just curious. Of course my wife says age and maturity have nothing in common, she says I'm a 2 year old in an old man's body. ��

Nice thread les, I’m old in years, but still have a lot of ‘youthful’ energy per se. Let’s just say I was born during the tri-5 Chevy years. Biking does help keep me motivated. BTW, love the t-shirt!

Looks like from early results the 50 - 60 age group are leading the pack. Since I've got a few of you in years how about grandchildren. I'm a proud Pop with 8 grandchildren, 4 boys and 4 girls, ages 5 to 19. When everyone comes in that's a total of 18 people counting wife and I. Sure glad the wife likes to cook.

Two grandchildren. Myles, he’ll be 11 in August, Madyson, she’s 9 and runs the household. She’s ‘Gampa’s girl’ and wants a Motorcycle, not a car when she turns 16. She loves to ride with me on short trips when we get to visit.

So.....I'm the old guy here. I'm surprised that there is a 19 year span of no one.
Not old, just more life experiences. 😀

No one is their 20s or mid-late 30s. Interesting.
I know for me in my younger years it was all about sports bike. Trying to prove something. Now I want to enjoy and experience.

I like the looks of Sport Bikes and appreciate the speed they have. I just have never felt comfortable on them. Always felt like the 'family jewels' were being crushed.

Interesting that 40% are in the 50 to 60 age group. Explains why a lot of 80s bikes are referenced. The newer bikes are more comfortable and reliable but in my younger years the 70 and 80 bikes were a blast to ride.

I'll be 68 in 2 weeks, and have 5 grand kids. The oldest is graduating Sunday. Youngest is 3 1/2. Bikes took a huge leap in the 80s, but I think my Star 1300 is the very best bike I've ever rode. Yea some sport bikes will run circles around it, but they beat ya to death. I like the steady pull that the 1300 has. Makes me smile.:grin::grin:

Some of the reasoning i think the age bracket is what it is could be that here in Canada.. Ontario specifically insurance on the 1000cc or bigger cruisers can be quite costly based on age. My first bike a 2013, 750 shadow phantom insurance was $2000/yr and I was 40 when i started riding. The Vstar is now only costing me $900/yr. If i was younger I'm sure out would cost a lot more. I've heard kids (25-30 ) paying 3-4000 on 750cc cruisers.
