GS/GS Adv. Owner's age poll

If this has been done recently, the mods should feel free to nuke it.

That said, I'm just curious as to the current ages of folks who own these bikes.

I'm 62 and have been riding since I was 6 - Jap bikes and H-D's. I'll be taking delivery of my first BMW in December - an R1200GS Adventure.

Thanks for your responses and interest.

I turn 40 in a couple months, and just started riding 3 years ago. Started on a BMW F650, and moved to the Big Pig 1150GS last year. LOVE THIS BIKE!

Looks like us old farts are hammerin' them young 16-25 punks (probably because we're the only age groups that can afford these things)!

Thanks to all who have voted/responded so far.
