I'll have to give it a look, though I'm not sure I'm "professional" enough  :001:

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

It seem only fair that we ask "who's the youngest on this Forum"?

Chico

No-show below mid to late 40's, so far it would seem - are they too shy and bashful perhaps?   :084:

Or maybe it's more convenient to access the 'experience' using the mobile and so much less risky for the . . .  risk-averse.  :492:

Sadly, young turks are rather thin on the ground these days.

I can manage early forties! 42 next week. Just got back on a bike for the first time after a DT 50 at 16 and loving it.

This thread's pretty inspirational. Hoping I'll still be getting out and about on two wheels in 30-40 years time like some of you lot  :123:

It would appear I'm in the whipper-snapper range being 45.  :152:

Licence for 20 years but not many miles (due to marriage, kids and subsequent divorce  :046: ) until the last 3 years, bikes include ZZR 600 and a couple of Thunder Cats.

Early days I had MZ 250 a CZ 125 and a Frances Barnett 250

I have to confess to being 78 years old, currently riding a Tiger 800. My first bike was a Matchless 500 back in 1955, no restriction on engine size then and no compulsory helmet either. I've never been without a bike since then and have no intention to stop riding any time soon.
