Smile HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU GOT YOUR FIRST CRUISER ?

Just wondering, how old were you guys when you decided to get a crusier ?
I got mine when I turned 50, it was a birthday present to myself.
Previous bikes were sportbikes or standards.

I guess I've got it backwards........went with the cruisers/standards in my 20's - 30's.
Turned 50 this year and I'm on my......... 7th or 8th sportbike.

20 (1985). That's when I got my CB900 Custom full dress (if you could call that a cruiser). I've been riding for a LOOONG time, so when I started riding, there where nekkids and there were Harleys. I had been riding for quite a few years when the GPZ 750 came out. I've had 15 street bikes, and my Gixxer that I have now is my first "super sport" bike. My next bike will probably be a Street Bob or a Road Star 1700 or something. I love my sportbike, but I'm starting to get older, and the cramped riding position is starting to take it's toll when commuting. I like the look of the blacked-out Sportster Nightster, but I just can't bring myself to ride a Sportster. I worked in Harley shops for too long (I actually worked for Tommy from On The Border Cycles back when it was Pasadena Cycle Supply at their original location).

I was 33 when I started out on a Honda Nighthawk 250. Not exactly a cruiser, but close.

My NEXT bike will be that Ducati Streetfighter.
