Well, long about 51 years ago, I started riding them damn thangs and I started when I was 14. Or was it the other way around?

The last dirt bike I owned was a 68, 120, Kawasaki Bushmaster. 20+ years later a Dub-R, WOW :)

My wife says she has three boys 11, 14 and 41! Degenerated disc in my back (to many years of Judo), Knees not in good shape (to many kicks in Karate). Who cares, let's ride :D

42. Multiple disc failure.
Began riding again 3 years ago with a 1992 DR350. Only dirt bike before that was a 1971
Hodaka Ace 100 my father bought for me at age 13 in 1972. $375.00 off the showroom floor.
Back is doing much better this year after getting rid of the '92 DR and going to a 2001 WR.

42. Started riding at 14. My first bike was a Hodaka 90, then a Super Rat then I bought the 73 Elsinore 125, YZ250, YZ465, DR350, and now my beloved 2000 WR. Man am I feeling old.

I turned over 40 last December. Been abusing sport bikes since '78. Bought a WR400 last spring and spent the rest of the season wondering why it took me so long to get into the dirt. This year... well... I have a week-old RC51 in the garage. 470kms on the clock. I kinda like this turning 40 thing... :)
