Had a cb450 when I was 19, but nothing after that until I was 39. do I feel cheated? Well, yes and no. I raced and toured on bicycles for all of that time, so I reached 40 in excellent health. If I kept riding motorcycles back then I'm sure I'd weigh about 250 lbs and would be a smoker to boot, if I managed to live to see thirty. At 44 I feel (finally!) mature enough to ride a motorbike and stay well within my limits, with nothing to prove to anyone, content to cruise around the back roads, waving to other bikers like I'm running for mayor, not getting ruffled when people scoff at my ATGATT and letting my faster friends leave me in the dust on occassion.
