I built my first bike at age 13 from plans from Popular Mechanics back in 1955.
Still riding at age 71 after probably 50 or more bikes.
We spend six months in the mountains of Western North Carolina where the riding on and off pavement is wonderful, not so great riding in SW Florida in the winter but the weather is decent.
Just got back from Bike Week on the Ural, great time at the sidecar meet at the Flea Market.
Hope to keep riding for another ten years or so.
