75.

The even more amazing thing is what Fast Eddie's rides are like at 75. Multi day mega rides, off road rides, riding in all day rain, camping in the rain... I think you get the idea. This guy is a force of nature!!!

Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!

71 in December. 55 years riding, started at 15.

I will admit that health issues are starting to slow me down and it pisses me off! Back, knees, hips and more.

66 will be 67 in Sept. Started at 15 and never been without a bike except during Vietnam stuff. Had a Honda CB-160 in Korea but nothing in Thailand.
Thought I may have give up 2-wheelers when I hade a hip replacement in September but it turned out perfect. Still ride horses, motorcycles, and snowmobiles and hope for many more years of enjoyment.

I'm sneaking up on 60, but still a little south of it.

I totally act my age.

I'll be 71 this month. It appears to that I have a few years to go before I'm the oldest.

66 will be 67 Sept 27. I'm a 25 year old kid trapped in a 66 year old body and I love to ride motorcycles.

65. My claim to fame is that I have socks older than some of the riders in this little group...
