47. Rode my first motorbike when I was 16. Starting regularly riding friends bikes when I was in college. Purchased my first bike of my own (a used 1985 K100RS) when I was 23. I've always either had a BMW in the garage or had my eye on one since then.
Over the years I've had a list of bikes including a number of years when I didn't own a street bike because all my extra cash was in road racing equipment. The list includes Honda VFR750, Ducati 900SP, Honda RS125, Honda XR100 mini-motard, Aprilia RS250, BMW R1100GS, Wood-Rotax SJ676, Harley-Davidson Road King, and BMW R1150RT.
For me the F800GS is a near perfect compromise. It's not really excellent at anything but great at almost everything... or at least adequate.
