Wicked who started riding after age 30

my first bike was a rupp 4 1/2 hp minibike as a pre-teen. i had a lambretta serveta scooter in college 150cc i believe. i'm 51 now and bought a suzuki 1K vstrom 2 months ago. took the msf riders course and readily admit i'm a novice. put 3000 miles so far, and am planning to ride 1500 miles on it over thanksgiving weekend to see family back in TN. my wife is beginning to talk to me again after the purchase. i've always wanted a bike, and 3$ gas helped rationalize it for me. loving it so far. commute most days to work, 45 mpg is twice any other vehicle i own! jet
