Is 50 years old too old for a Honda CBR?

I know someone rolling around on a CBR1000, and he is 50+/- couple of years.
Is he too old for that hardcore of a bike or should he be considering an FJR or something similar in his sunset years? I guess he gets around ok on it but looks a little funny when you see his knee high socks at stop lights with the velcro strap tennis shoes.

Oh, I reread the first post, nevermind.

I don't have a CBR.

Nothin' off an officer more than stopping a racing "crotch rocket" to find out it's a grey headed ol' fart. Ask Badchev....he's dissappointed a few officers that thought they'd get to chew out some young punk only to find out it was some wise old fart.

QFT Actually had a cop tell me he expected me to be younger when I took off my helmet.

I think a more valid question would be;
Is 30 old ENOUGH to ride Supersport liter bikes?
