Been a lurker here for info, but I caught this thread. 31 and been riding 20+ yrs. Owned many bikes, but bought a plated '02 WR426 this last May with the intention of making it a supermoto. Now I've done a couple of races and I'm completly HOOKED. MOST fun on any bike I've ridden.

50....... Started on a Sears 3hp Briggs at age 6.

Moved to a Honda Mini Trail at age 9 on Christmas day. Mom was p*****. Dad must have been cut off for a year because he never bought me another bike and told me I had to pay for them. I found out why after I got married.

Had to deliver papers a mow yards to get a Honda 100 at 12.

45. Started on a Honda Mini Trail the first year they came out. Think it was about 1965 or 66, which would make me 4 or 5 at the time. Got a Yamaha GT60 "Mini Enduro" when they came out in '71, then graduated to a '72 CT1 175, an RT1 360, and then made the jump to an RM125A in '76. Rode that 'till '82, when I boutght an '81 RM465X. Still have it, and bought an 01 WR426 about 2 years ago.

I'm 35 and will be 36 in November. I've been riding since I was about 27 and my first bike was a 80 Yamaha IT125. While it wasn't the monster that my WR450 is it was a fun bike to play on, kinda like a large pit bike.
