0 years old and just started riding motorbikes after 30-years. Bought a cruiser (Kawasaki 1500 Classic), tourer (R1300RT), naked (F800R). All boring.



Bought a 2020 S100RR M and I AM ALIVE!! All my senses come alive. I am flying! This machine is AMAZING ...OMG!!!!



All reviews, YouTubers - don't believe them. If a 60-year old can ride this beast, so can anyone else. One sales person even laughed at me when I said I wanted a sports bike. Now ..............I laugh at him.



I've had this now for a week, and I have to say - this bike is soooooooo amazing. The power, the control, and modes, the comfort features. OH wow!!



My wife says ....Honey, you don't get so excited about me! ....LOL!

Its an amazing bike. I have 3 of them now. Each has its own special hardware features.

Enjoy and I am sure you are waiting on 2021 so the sun will shine again.

Good for you! I'm new here myself but have had such a warm reception. My bike is still waiting on parts for the front brake recall (ETA March) so I'm glad you got a chance to get out there.

From your post: "My wife says ....Honey, you don't get so excited about me! ....LOL!"

Let's just say my wife has three months to warm up to the idea about me getting a motorcycle when it shows up in our garage.

Good for you! I'm 73 and ride my RR in the mountains pretty aggressively for as much as 300 miles in a day. If you eat right, exercise diligently and don't fall into the trap of thinking you have to "act your age", I believe you can ride a RR very proficiently into your 80's.

Love this, congrats!!!!
I'm 52 and got nine of them. Not a single one is a cruiser. Lol
I was out of the sportbike scene for nine years (had a 109), till my buddy bought an RC 51 and left it in my garage. Within a mint and a half I owned that thing and went downhill from there.
They keep you young, have a blast!! :)

Thanks for the inspiration FLYRYDER. I was hoping to ride into my 70's. That's not a lot of time.

Yup! We are on the same path. I'm looking to swap out my cruiser and my RT!!

I'm new to this forum as well. I just put a deposit down on a 2021 RR; can't wait. I'm in my 50s and appreciate you all for the inspiration!
