I'm 20, just traded my 07 KLR in on a F700GS! Been riding the KLR since I was 16 and dirt bikes since 9.

31, been dreaming of a F800gs for almost 3 years, finally bought a second hand almost full option 2011 with 8000 miles on the counter. Got my license 2 weeks ago. Was into quad adventure riding (Suzuki ltz 450) for 10 years, but always wanted something that we could ride comfortably 2 up.

Youth is wasted on the young

I am 59, six decades next spring. Been riding an R1150R for the last 3 years, a long line of Airheads before that and the usual cadre of Japanese bikes as a beginner starting 35 years ago. Just took a month long run from Virginia Beach, Va to Lake Elsinore, Ca with zero mechanical problems. The machine held up better than the rider.

I got my R1200GS when I was 30 and I'm about to turn 32. Never met anyone younger than me with anything other than a crotch rocket, harley sportster, or a dirt bike, let alone a BMW. I can't get anyone to commit!

In motorcyclist years (crashes, surgeries, No SO to help take care of me, not taking care of myself, blowing off physical therapy, not going to the doctor in general, too much sun, wind and road noise, wild swings of emotion (I got a new bike- I threw my favorite bike in a ditch))

I am 1 million years old.

I started doing the "Adventure" thing in 1990 on an 88 KLR650. Back then I was the guy that was riding the big, weird, dirtbike looking thing. Now I'm just another douchebag on a BMW Adventure at Starbucks.
This is SPARTA!

I'm 34 years old with a bit of body damage and pretty high miles. I think I'd probably be considered a salvage title after the stuff I've been through
My lame, but photo intense day trips around Wyoming can be found here:
