41 years old, after 18 years pause, bought my WR450 Januar 05, the XT350 as a project bike for my 12 year old son, the wife´s TTR250 Last winter, and then added the CR125 for my son 2 months ago (now 13 years old).

Now it is a family sport and we can see us riding into the sunset decades to come...... if all goes well.

45, but very immature for my age. (what I want to know is will I always think and feel like a 25 year old? Strange how my wife ages and I don't... well, except for the lack of hair on my head, earning a few pounds (not the British ones), hairy ears, sleeping in my recliner, snoring loudly, etc.)

First bike was a $50 1972 (?) Yamaha 125 enduro when I was in 7th grade. No kickstarter (had to push it) , or headlight, or tailight, a pair of vicegrips for a shifter, duct tape instead of vinyl for upholstery, no baffle, etc... My pride and joy!

AWWW that is sweet!!

My 1st bike was a harley Davidson enduro. I wish I still had it. I'm guessing it would be worth some $$ now.

Hey Jim,

You are one of my heros. I want to be ridin well into my 60's!! I'm 45 now.

Btw, I'm sure you've seen KTM will be delivering fully dual sported bikes this year. Their EXC's are 50 state legal. They will be hot sellers! Cheers,

28, but with enough metal plates in my leg that I walk like a 75 year old. My first bike was a 73 Suzuki TC 125. I did yard work for two Saturdays for this old bike. She ran hard and I still have the gas tank mounted in my garage. My current bike is the 06 WR450.

34yrs. Rode Quads from 9-18yrs. First Suzuki lt185 in Pittsburgh, to Quadsport 230 to 250 quadracer! Bought a 2006 WR450 in November-05. My parents didn't allow Bikes.
I feel like a teen again! Now I don't have to ride friends bikes when the parents are out of sight!

Same here. I got my WR last July and I wish I could have had it 10 years ago when I rounded up my old LT500R. I was 23 when I got it. Now I'm 25. I wish I had known what I was missing in the bike's. I've had and raced 2 $15,000 quads ( Banshee and 250R) and 1 $10,000 one ( 500 Suzuki ) and god only knows how much money mom and dad had in the ones before those from age 10 just to keep them running. I just like to pleasure ride now and I'm NOT spending $6,000 on a suspension set-up for quad to make it ride like my $6,000 bike does stock. I

44. Rode from the time I was about 10 through 16. Pretty light stuff - no motocross. Got the CRF 230 to ride with my son, then decided I wanted more.

Believe me, the WR450 is more.
