Started on the downhill side of 40. A couple of years ago I bought a little Hodie 100 to take camping. Found it cheaper to buy whole bikes than parts and before I know it I had over 30 bikes! Bought all the ones I couldn't talk my folks into as a kid. Hey Bobwombat, did you come to my garage sale?

It is good for us all to refuse to show or act our age. My wife shakes her head when we go somewhere and I end up sitting with the high school kids rather than the adults.

Remember, you don't quit riding because you get old, you get old because you quit riding! But I do have to work on Monday so it's always in the back of your mind when you think of taking chances isn't it?

Keep the rubber side down on that R6, I broke my shoulder and colapsed a lung on my XJ 600 back in 94, that street stuff is dangerous :) . I had a KLR 250 too, it was an 86. My how far the thumpers have come since then.

Yeah Ga426owner, whatever! I've been 39.5 for over a year now!

I too started counting in decimals when I was 39. In fact, I'm still doing so. I'm at 39 + (21/12). For those of you under 40, age math gets more complicated when you pass 40.

50 and been riding for 33 years. My WR has me more excited about riding than ever. Can't wait to see what's available when I'm 60.

Jeez, I can't believe that I am almost 5 years older than the average age of all the posts.

I can remember when I was 10-15 years younger than the average age of everything that I liked to do.

What really sucks in my opinion is the fact that I could not afford to do all the things that I now love when i was young, but now I can afford them and I am getting to old.

Somehow this seems like some cruel trick

39 (really!).

Which coincidentally is the same number of hairs left on my head.

Im 16, I normally post on the YZ side but saw 91 posts on this topic and decided to come see how old everyone is! Looks like im the 2nd youngest on the WR side! I have been riding since I was 10yrs old! I do 99% MX and SX! And have only had 2 broken arms and 1 concussion! LOL.

The reason they can ride like that at 16 is because they don't have to worry about such things! Mom and Dad will take care. No offense, I would do the same for my kids. But if I broke both arms now, my wife would simply place me in the garage and leave me to my own devices to solve such problems. That is assuming she couldn't get the doctor to euthanize me rather than cast the arms!

2nd: Honda Z50 ('77)
3rd: Honda XR100 ('81)
4th: KDX 200 ('85)
5th: XR250R ('86)
6th: KX 500 ('95)
7th: XR600R ('94)
8th: WR400F ('98)

Favorites: WR, with a close second to the XR250 in the mountains of Southern Colorado.

In my spare time, in order to make a living to support my family and my habits, I fly jets for the Navy in Jacksonville, Fl.

Butta,
Does Calico Jacks still exist in Jax? Loved Tuesdays and quarter beer night there. Oh, when I was young (29)... I dearly loved Florida. Of all the states I have lived MN,IL,FL,NY,CT,CA,GA,PA,NH,SC, Florida had by far the best looking women. What a state!! :)

npuza,

Yeah I did break both of my arms at the same time! I wrecked on a 130ft tabletop and snapped both of my forearms :) ! About the wiping of my @$$...the casts only went up to about 2 inches before my elbow so I could move rather freely! I wont go into details because I might offend someone LOL...take a look at the YZ426 board it is more like a "flame board" because someone offended someone! Bunch of nagging if you ask me! Later,

Garrett

Maybe you misread it...married with two kids.
I don't get out like I used to. Have to live vicariously through my single friends, but they are all pretty depressed about the local area compared to San Diego (which is where we all spent a year before coming here). Anyway, the beaches are always a good show.....LOL
