How old are you 'blade riders?

I'm 64 and about to take delivery of my second blade - a 2003 954, which I hope is going to be more comfortable than my 2012 20th anniversary model that I sold a couple of years ago. Are you all much younger than me?

Re: How old are you 'blade riders?

I'm coming up on the 44th anniversary of my birth... and have a pair of rather comfortable 954s One has a lowering link" which has taken quite a bit of pressure off of my hands/wrists

I also own a Suzuki V Twin "cruiser" bike which I have also grown fond of over the past couple of riding seasons. SHHH! Tell no one

Had to "expose you"

I'm 45, wish I was 25, feel like 75, ride like I'm 85.

Yeah, those chaps were the beginning of the end, for me anyway. Dave rocked them though, far better than I ever could.

61 in August.

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.
