Just wondering who the youngest rider is. I am 23 and should have my GW within a month or two. I have two other bikes (00 GSXR-750, 03 CBR600RR) but I need something for serious touring.

Im 27, working on 28 here in the next month. I started riding Wings when I was 20-21. Started off on a 78 GL1000 which I just recently sold to MarkJ on this board. Got a 1800 in November of 04. I used to go to some GWRRA rallies and I would get the youngest rider award. The last one I went to, my wife (girlfriend at the time) and I both got the youngest rider award.

In this months Wing World, they claim the youngest rider attending Wing Ding was 15. I thought you had to be 16 to get an operators license...

Well I have given both my grandkids a ride on my wing and valkyrie at the tender age of 9 months old and they both grinned from ear to ear and even giggled a little!

Well Captain, here in Iowa you can get a Motorcycle Permit, just like a car permit, a licensed driver must be close when he drives. I know this because I'm the father of the Youngest driver at Wing Ding this year. He road his 750 Shadow there and then we went farther, we drove over 2100 miles. :D :D :D :D

We took rides when Brenda was 8 months pregnant :) he is now 4 and we just went on a short trip to campout with friends. I got my first wing a 1976 at age 20 or so. After my buddy kept runing off while i was on my KZ1000 :) he left me in the dust on the long haul. I been hooked and am on number 7 now.

According to my wife, I act like a 12 yr old when on the Wing. But alas, the DL says I am really 49, but I don't believe it!
