Re:Age 4 Years, 3 Months ago  
I'm 23, started with an automatic dirt bike when I was kid, didn't touch a bike for years until my brother started fixing up a 37 knucklehead. Relearned with that baby then some practice with newer Harleys. And now I've owned my first bike, my awesome R* for about 6 months

33 been riding crotch rockets for 13 years. This would be my first slow bike

But man do I love to be able and just sit back and cruise on this Roadie. The wife is a lot more comfortable too

66 this month. Started at 20 years old, but took about 15 years off riding. Got my R* last spring, and will ride until I can't throw my leg over it!

Re:Age 4 Years, 3 Months ago  
Wow this post started over 5 years ago and is still going. May as well add my 2 cents. I'm 52, broke my collarbone on a minibike with those crappy band brakes when I was 10. Continued to ride same minibike with collarbone brace, crap brakes and now bent forks. First real M/C Yamaha 80 dirt bike. My current Road Star is bike # 94. At least 40 of those never ran or ran poorly. Not rich or from a rich family, Army brat, never made more than $18K a year as an adult. Married my high school sweetheart, they said it wouldn't last, they were wrong. She rides a V-star 650 Classic. Have had 4 sidecars too, hoping for a 5th one. Disabled now but still riding. I have CHF, COPD, Diabetes, Hypoxia, Narcolepsy, Sleep Apnia, and some really ugly toenails. Still a sexual Tyrannasauraus Rex.

Re:Age 4 Years, 3 Months ago  
Im 31. Got on a dirtbike (my buds) one time when i was 15 and got snake bit. Got my first road bike at 17 road it a season and had to sell it. Met my wife and had a kid real fast, she was deathly afaid of bikes for years so we had a lot of fights cause i wanted back on two wheels. After she finally caved in i got her on the back shortly after and now she loves riding.

Happy life again!

Re:Age 4 Years, 3 Months ago  
I'm either 38, or 12, or 95, depending on who you ask. I had a B&S mini bike as a kid. I got a 86 Suzuki GS550L a couple of years ago and fought with getting that thing to run right for a year. Got the R* in March and couldn't be happier. The wife who is 33 grew up around bikes and was wondering when I would finally get one.

Re:Age 4 Years, 3 Months ago  
I lived in the Hudson Valley of NY and rode a bunch in the 80's and early 90's. I swore off 25 years ago for no particular reason other than life got in the way. This past January my son and I rented a pair of Heritage Softails for a day. Three days late I bought my Road Star. Son got a V-Star 650. We ride together often. In June I added a Venture to the stable. I've got over 12000 miles in so far this year between the two bikes. I'm loving it. I'm 62.
