    Question How long have you been riding motorcycles? Old timers speak up!

    Just curious...

    54 years for me and have loved every minute of it. I still get the same smile on my face every time I ride one just like I did 54 years ago...

    I actually used to start up and ride my dad's Cushman scooter when he was called away to sea duty for months at a time when I was 10, but we won't count that or tell my dad, okay?

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    I won my first motorcycle in a poker game at the University of Ga in 1964.

    I guess that works out to 54 years for me too...

    2 weeks. I'm new to riding.
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    8 years and I'm 58. I bought my first TW a couple months before I turned 50 then an FZ6 for my 50th birthday. Some times I wish I had started earlier but then again I'm pretty sure I would have killed myself.

    A mere 42 years - passed my test in 1976, so probably another year needs to be added to that

    Experience = hours in the saddle + terrain variety - you can make up your own mind about that .....

    Admiral, haven't you heard the old adage that "You can go to hell for lying as well as stealing!"
