30. You punks under 30 better be prepared for the downhill slide.... Knees & shoulders were doing good until I hit 29 - too much abuse on the joints.

Huh!
I feel like I'm about 60! :)
Can't move without creaking, clunking and clonking.
I'll be in a home by the time I'm 30! :D

My 5th motorcycle was a 1957 Maico 250 with a swingarm front end, hit the front brake and it went up instead of down. We're both 43 years old now.

Turned 39 in April, but I have tantrums like a 2 year old but act like a college student the rest of the time.

Ditto Brian Meadows on the joints. You don't realize how important they are, until they start to go away.

I'm 37 and feel like it.

I raced in my first motocross in about 10 years last weekend. Boy have I gotten slow in my old age. I signed up in the 30 plus class, thought I might have a chance. I was wrong.

I had a real problem with the double jumps, don't see too many of them in the trails I normally ride. I just couldn't get the nerve up to try the doubles. The WR worked good on the track, I just set the dampning a little harder.

Oh well, I guess I will just stick to the trails.

Roy
