    OLDEST TW Riders

    I just turned 70 - been riding dirt since the age of 12 - my wife says I am getting too old and brittle to ride.

    Who is the oldest TW rider here

    As long as you don't crash it doesn't matter how brittle you are. I have a friend who is 69 and still comes on 50 mile ice skating trips with us. Age alone should not preclude your fun.

    I'm 62. But feel 20 years older early in the morning. Does that count?

    I just turned 73 and still ride. Just not as much or with as much élan.

    Just turned 68.

    Still pretty active, but learning my limitations, a lá Dirty Harry.

    Which kinda led to my downsizing from a 950 to a 200.

    But just as much fun as ever!

    72 now and did not start riding again until I was 70 after a break of 55 years since I had an Allstate scooter. I ride mostly to camp and explore, not hardcore technical stuff. I trailer the TW to my base camp destination as I don't care for long highway rides.
