Rode 50cc mopeds from age 12. Became a moped courier around Amsterdam, and my boss had several small displacement motorcycles (80/125/250) that were disguised as mopeds. Got into Vespas and rode old two-stroke Vespas without a license for more than a decade before I decided that I wanted to ride bigger bikes, so I got my license around 2000, when I was thirty-three, which coincided with meeting the girl who'd become my wife. She got her license fast and we moto-camped all over Europe. I got my car license in 2008, when my wife complained that she had to drive our son everywhere.
We bought our first car today.
