41. I bought it when I was 37 after owning several KTM LC4's. I just picked up motarded KTM 625 SXC but am considering keeping my DR. I always say that if I were only able to have one bike for the rest of my life it would be a modded DR650.

From 9-2012 SE Washington/NE Oregon

I Win

I think I win as the youngest!

I sold mine last month to upgrade to an XR650R, but I bought my DR 650 when I was 15 (3 weeks before turning 16). I rode it for 9 months and then sold it to uprade to the xrr. All my friends make fun because its a dirtbike and some even say I should get a harley


Obligatory Pic...
(yes i know the blinker is hanging, this is before I replaced them.)

57 now, I bought it several years ago just before I turned 55.

It took me six months of tweaking and experimenting to get it like I wanted it to ride the CDT in July 2010. Then I almost sold it last year but took one more ride and changed my mind.

I figure now to keep it until I get out of riding. In fact, given the around town fun factor of the DR and that my wife is no longer interested in riding, the Wing will go first.
