I'm 58 and ride a GSX-R1000k2, my ride before that was a '99 R1, I'm looking at a'05 1K for next year or perhaps an '06 750 gixxer.
Unless I kill myself first I'll be riding at 65, I do keep myself fit with gym work and riding a mountain bike.
wow... Good post. I don't have a 1k but was lurking and saw this thread. Good to see my hopes of riding for years to come is realistic. Oh and I am turning 21 next month, MX since 7 and street since 16. SV650S and want a 750k6 or a 1k within a year
