I'm "only" 34 and I too want to ride sportbikes for as long as possible. I've been working out regularly though for the past 20 years. Been a strict vegetarian since 1995. So people often mistake me for being 8-10 years younger. But damn, I do notice how my body has changed. I need more warm up time in the gym before I lift anything heavy, and I need way more time to recover from injuries. Time stops for no one......so have fun while you can!

Oh, and to the youngins.....respect your elders, you too will be old one day

I'm only 33yrs old but here in Thailand we have a couple older guys (63 & 64yrs old) that do trackdays almost every Monday and also race with us. They are actually really fast and I only hope to be still riding when I get that age.

Just turned 50; ride my BMW S1000RR to work every day, track it as often as I can (12+times a year) have put 44,000 plus miles on my 2011 in the last 24 months.

Been riding since I was 7 years old and still can't find anything else I love as much as Motorcycles. I will ride until I can't walk anymore. I know a local rider who rides a Yamaha R6 and still does trackdays and he's 81 years old!!!!! When I grow up, I want to be like him...

I love my bike and hope to continue riding till I can't. I am only 46, but feel like I am in my 20's...somehow I think that feeling is related to my chosen hobby!
