    How old are Trophy Riders?

    Sorry to hijack another thread which (re) appeared lately. Whilst the age question was asked, there are 9 pages of results any of which are on topic. It would take a long time to get a sense of how old we are from reading through.

    I am just curious how old most of us are. I know the genre doesn't lend itself to younger thrill seekers. I just wondered whether we get any surprises when the results are all in one place. If you declared your age in the other post, I would encourage you to post here as well.

    Cheers, Keith

    Not surprised... Seeing as you old geezers have more time to drive.  :745: :745:

    ikkieman if you call the 50's bracket "old geezers", then what do you call my bracket.......70+. I hazard to guess. But after riding since I was 15 I couldn't think of a better way to thumb authority. I hope to be doing it into my 80's.  :821: :158:

    Will be 62yo in October.  First rode a bike in 1968 and by myself the following year.  Few breaks in between.  Only major accident was in 1973 and developed my sixth sense shortly afterwards - hasnít failed me yet.  Two things I canít stress enough: donít take anything for granted, including traffic/road situations.  No dope / alcohol impairment EVER while riding a bike as you always must have your wits about you (alertness).  Iím struggling at the moment due to physical ailments but hope to ride for many more years.  Riding bikes is better than sex IMO!?!?

    Seeing as I'm a Dutch guy I love to say things as I see them. Add that to the percentage of 30-year olds who ride trophy's, and anyone outside my bracket is a old geezer.  :745: :164:
    I love to rile people up.
