Default Old Geezer

Geez, should I admit this or what?

Well I'm 58 years young and I've been riding since I was 18. I presently have three different bikes from a wickedly sick Harley Dyna CVO that is built with 115 Hp and 112 lbs of Torque, a Yamaha YZ-450 dirt bike and now the HP4-Comp. So I guess that makes me the Gran-Pappy around here for the moment! I'll still whip your ass in the twisties though!

70 - riding since age 11. Started with a home made "scooter" using a snowblower engine on a cut down bike frame, then moved "up" to a Whizzer motorbike which I acquired as a basket case about 1956 ( http://www.moped2.org/whizzer-bike.htm ). First "real" motorcycle I ever rode was an early 50's BSA 500cc Gold Star owned by a friend. Current rides are a GS Adventure and Speed Triple R. HP4 Standard on order with request to my dealer to upgrade to a Competition if one should become available. Most here no doubt consider me an old fart, but still physically fit, flying helicopters and driving performance cars (since the 60's). Cant go on forever but will make the most of it while I can!

43
Been riding for about 25 years with most of my dirt bike experience when I was about 6-8 years old. Didn't start riding on the street until I was about 20. Several years racing in the CMRA with a few championships. Used to teach track days for about 3 years.
