The vast majority of people my age are riding "crotch rockets" that their mommy and daddy bought them, and have no interest in working on them.

Every time I talk to someone roughly my age (24) on an old bike, they talk about how it's a POS and they want a new one.

Oh well, I have advrider.
Go ahead and move to Atlanta, we'll take care of ya.

I had a beard and road old bikes when I was 24. Does that mean I was cool and didn't realise it?

we all did it

Here's a pic of my friends and me circa 93 all of us in our 20's. We all still ride, but there is Goretex involved now, not just black leather. I liked the video, any of us could probably find something to relate to. Yeah they are a bit goofy swerving back and forth, but it would be pretty boring going in a straight line. You are idealistic in your 20's and want to identify with and be identified by certain groups or sub groups, once you live through that you don't care as much. Just be glad you did it and had fun.

Loved the vid, reminds me of some of my friends and their bikes. Except for most of us have grey hair (what little we have), are a little larger around the middle, and are least 2-3 times there age. A few even have vintage helmets for special rides.

I may say that about my R80 sometimes, but I only hate her when she's mean to me...which is typically after I've been mean to her.

But I agree with the modern young guys statement. I have one friend that rides. He rides a Speed Triple. Blegh. Least I managed to convince him to buy a /5 and we're restoring it nowadays.

That is exactly my lifestyle. I'm just older, fatter, work all the time and have no friends, other than that I would fit right in

OK, BUT I HAVE NEVER PUSHED MY CB... come to think of it I haven't ever really seen a CB being pushed anywhere? Shoulda put a Suzuki GT or T500 or other old two smoker that needs pushing every now and again. LOL

Bloodwieser you got a garage?!?!? Im in Albany... I totally agree with the riding alone thing, I have since i started riding when i was 16 bc none of my friends we aloud let alone wanted to get their licenses. then when I was at college there was ppl to ride with, all hardcore street racers. they were good to me though bc I was and still am pretty nervous to get my knee down on a blind double line corner.. i did learn alot though, mainly i like riding alone hahaha.
