There's already been numerous threads about this, but it is still fun....

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...t=years+riding

So, it will be 29 years next month

I am a former MSF instructor, and yes, I took the course too!

Dozens upon dozens of bikes.

I raced pro motorcross, arena cross and supercross as a kid. Moved to road racing, and now just old.

I've logged hundreds of thousands of miles. Ridden thru the lower 48 states numerous times. Once did an 11 month tour, which took me thru 40 states and 30k miles in 11 mnths.

Lets just say I've been around the block a few times

I'm a 3rd generation biker. Grandma, Grandpa, Mom, Dad, all rode thier own bikes. By the time I was 17, I had already ridden thru more than half of the country following them on extended tours.

I did take a year off of college to do my long tour, solo of course.

your right! guess i had a brain fart. Got my first "street bike" when I was 19. Don't know what I was adding on that thread. had a kx80 when I was 17. I'm 31 now. I don't really count dirt bike as street time. Hard to get run over by a cow in the pasture.
