Average age of the XR owner?
on: May 29, 2019, 12:14:23 PM
I saw this question on an old XR forum but couldn't seem to find a thread about it here.

I bought my XR a few weeks ago and at the ripe old age of 31 I got berated by my biking buddies that I bought an old mans bike already! (They all have superbikes, Superdukes etc)

I've had 9 bikes in the last 4 years with the last one being my beloved Aprilia Tuono V4. Unfortunately I had to sell the Tuono and get a "more sensible" bike as the Tuono sucks for commuting (fuel range).

So am I a young pup amongst the old dogs?!

Post you ages if you feel like it :)

After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.
