Way past their bedtime to reply.
Just curious at to how many older riders we have on here and who is the oldest rider. I'm 56 and proud owner operator of a Gen I and Gen II Busa. I'll never stop riding these beautiful beasts. Shocks the hell out of some of the "kids" in my area when I pull up at an event and pull the helmet off to show a gray haired dude riding a Busa. I'll admit, I don't ride them nearly as quick/fast as they are meant to or can, every time I I get on it, past experiences kick in.

53 here ... rode it like I stole it almost every ride
I'm over 56....and still riding my 09! Of all the Busa riders I've seen...think the youngest were in their 40's!
I should have posted this earlier. Some of the old folks homes cut off the internet connection at 6 pm. Hopefully I'll get more responses tomorrow.
59 years old here. Love my 2008 Busa.
Well into my sixties but I give no specifics. As they say age is just a number and mine is unlisted.
Last fall, I did the Yamaha Champions thing at Miller Motorsports.
Just bought a black 2012 S1000RR as a stable mate and took it to Jennings -- but it wouldn't start. OK it had 600 miles on it, so you apparently can't ask German machinery to work forever. Now it is recalled.
My 04 purple has 5 figures on the odometer and never let me down. But it has got me up nearly every time.
For those of you who still have acne, it will be different after 50 (if you're lucky) but it can be better in a number of ways.
I just can't remember them right now.
What? No replies?
I guess a few PBR's and it's beddie time for the kiddies.

I'd rather be riding my motorcycle thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about my motorcycle.

55 and just did an Iron Butt BunBurner Gold last weekend-1500+ miles in 24 hours.
Wow! I'm starting to feel young at 39 . . .
It only takes a second to show someone you care about them......The police call it indecent exposure but whatever......
SumBeach ,you are young. I thought I was cool for being 53 but the sixty plus guy almost made me not post.I'll see ya when I'm 65......
Excellent, we have several older riders. I thought I might be one of a handful of members of this site over 50. Starting to feel better. Bring on the replies.
My age is a secret, but know that I will never get as old as I look.

Always ride as if everyone is trying to kill you, ... as they are.
