I don't feel old at all but as I was 53 and a few months old in April I'm probably middle aged.  So lets hope I hit 106 and a few months  :lol:

51 with two son's in their early & mid 20's - Four year old Grand son & a second (bump) due in September. Plenty of aches and pains from earlier bumps and bangs but mostly from now having an office job & having very little time to get much exercise I think, hmmm really need to change that, but mind still thinks I'm 21 which I'm hoping not to change just yet  :laugh:

Very please to be in the same bracket as 45 year old's tho  :cheers:

My story is. 64 yrs old. First bike at 8. First road registered at 16,Ariel 500 Red Hunter, superb bike. So many since, the best? Yeah its in my shed at moment.The worst, CR250 Elsinore and 850 Commando. Any bike better to ride than 14, my old Ducati Darmah, many mods over 15 yrs, 80 bhp on dyno. Just a brilliant machine. Loved maintenance but could make me smile. Hard to describe its personality.

Haha well what can I say! I'm always riding something :rofl2:
The way I see it.
I know people about my age and older and there only after having babies. I don't envy them with nappies and sleepless nights!
While mine are able to pretty much look after themselves.
I'll be that 40 year old in the nightclubs since I didn't get a chance to in my 20's :clapping:

I'm 70 and there are nights when a distant swishing noise keeps me awake. Best reason I know to get on a bike and wreck a rear
