Just turned 53 a couple weeks ago and I've been riding since I was 13.

Early 70's Honda Trail 70
Early 70's Hodaka Super Rat 100
Suzuki RM250 (couldn't tame that beast. Got rid of it so I could live to see 20 )
80 Yamaha 650 Special
80 something Kawasaki 454 LTD
79 GL 1000
long time with no bike. Jobs, kids, life.
2004 Honda 750 Shadow Aero ( this bike was flawless and dripping with chrome. Rode the hell out of it until Navigator said get something more comfortable for her)
1994 GL1500
2004 GL1800

Rode my son's Kawasaki r1 just long enough to realize I didn't need to go that fast so I really never got into the sport bikes.

A few. First motorcycle was a 1970 Suzuki TC90. It was my daily commuter and paper route workhorse. Since then its been five BMW's, five Hondas (including three Gold Wings), and two more Suzuki's.

62 years young year. Just for fun, I put a list together about 8 years ago and it was over 50 at that time. It's fun looking at the list and remembering the bike itself as well as the memories with it.
