I started riding two years age 42. After being diagnosed with borderline / pre diabetes I realized I probably wasn't going to live forever as previously planned. I had always wanted to ride so I thought I'd better get started. My only riding experience was on a 50 or 90cc minibike and a small dirtbike as a pre-teen, and on a rented scooter on a Greek Island in the 80's.

My first bike was a Honda Shadow VLX600 cruiser. Since then I've had a Buell XB9SL, a Ducati Monster 800, and a BMW F650GS. I currently have a Buell XB9SX, a Harley Dyna Superglide, and a BMW Dakar. I use my late start as an excuse / rationalization for having had so many bikes in a short time frame...

Then the wife started riding.... it's been a revolving door of bikes around here while we have been trying to sort out our preferences. We both feel time is defintely NOT on our side. I wish I had started sooner, but I'm glad I didn't start in my teens or 20's. I've never been a reckless person, but wisdom does occasionally accompany age.....
It's not much of a tail, but I'm sort of attached to it.
