How old are you Poll .

Post by MartinMille BANNED »

Hi Everyone

Today I spoke to someone that also rides Ducati's but not Bevels , after a while he came to the conclusion that only old farts (now) , back then when they couldn't afford them are still riding them today

I disagreed with him of cause as any Bevel own would have

Lets see what ages we come up with

I've been riding bevel twins since 1978 when I bought an 860GT. I've had my SS since 1984 so I've never really given them up.

Bought my first Duc when i was 21 : a 500 Desmo.
Worked hard to buy it and even harder to keep it going :-D
Since then always 1 or 2 ready.
Now that I can't remember what I did on my 50th birthday, still riding them hard (albeit a bit more carefull : Grande fratello is watching).

age related

Post by Lumpy »

I`m 49 and when I voted it moved my age group up to 50%...........spooky hey??? I did`nt think so either.........
Hey I`d have one `O` them new fandangled Ducati`s tomorrow but what do you fiddle with and adjust and tune and improvise and improve on them when in the shed. My daughter always says "why don`t you get a motor bike you don`t have to work on Daddy". I always turn to her and open my mouth to answer but then pause and reply "if you don`t know you`ll never understand sweetheart". She seems content with that and so am I.

Hmmm seems to be a distinct large grouping. IF I waited another 2 months I could have boosted the 50 and up's :-D .

Had the '78 Darmah since '87, a 500 parrallel before that too.

Fell in love in '74 with the sound of an SS, it used go past every morning while I was waiting for the school bus :P
I survived :-)

I think you should have a 45-55 age group,I reckon that will change the stats dramatically.I'm 42 and my mates think I live in la la vintage land,and given that the 80's are now 30 years ago,well they'd be correct!!
Old farts indeed.(not me of corsa,I'm only 42.)
