    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.

    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.

    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.
