53 years old. Rode my first bike back in the mid 60s and never stopped. This adventure thing looked interesting...ride the bike, camp, take photos, ride the bike and so on. Now if I could just figure out a way to include shooting guns the dream would be complete. :)

This thread is skewed. Young people use the interwebz more often and are more represented here on advrider. I've met a lot of riders who are older and have never heard of ADV.

I'm 30. Bought my 800GS at 28. At 24 when i bought my first street bike I would have never considered an adventure bike... until I realized you just need more than one bike!

Started this when I was 14 and a few years after I began to wander my pappy says to me one day "Call home every so often,your mom worries", Dad understood,staying in one place wasn't in his blood either, even today I take every opportunity to be "on the road" THE ADVENTURE NEVER ENDS it always there calling you to come see what's up ahead .

So I don't think age has anything to do with it I think its attitude

And the fact that only 10% of the world is tarmac, the rest is an adventure.
Yes!

I just turned 70. I got an Adventure Bike last year. I've had woods bikes for decades, but I guess that I'm starting to take it easier. The previous time that I went adventuring was about age 28. It was a BMW boxer that went from Michigan in the USA to half way across the Sahara in about 2 years. I'm not old, just not as young as I used to be.

It comes down to peer pressure. Maybe their buddies have a sport bike. If they bought an adventure their would be a lot of ball busting.

I'm 36. I got into the duel sport adv stuff because I wanted to go more places, and have a more comfy bike. First bike I had was a 81' cb750 custom (most uncomfy p.o.s. ever and sloppy on most any surface other than nice flat roads.) I would ride by some interesting gravel or dirt road and think I wish I could go there.
