38.

I wish I was into these things along time ago, as the ladies like my rig.

Got my first rig at 39.... 43 now and still enjoying the ride. Must say that I do have to have a solo bike as well. However, when it comes to making smiles, the hack can't be beat!

I'll be 49 in about 6 1/2 hours. Still enough time for you guys to pool some money for a nice gift.
I bought my first sidecar rig on a whim this past summer. I now have a new Ural waiting for me to go pick up.
Like many others I have other bikes in the garage and wouldn't think of giving up my FJR1300. Different tools for different jobs. My wife no longer is comfortable on regular 2 wheelers and we like riding together on slower seasonal roads. The Ural is perfect for that.

If I knew that women went crazy for sidecars, I would have built one ten years ago!

40, I got my first hack a bit over a year ago. Its an early 70's (like myself) Ural. If i would have known that they made me feel younger I would have gotten one long ago.....

56, Got my Ural a couple of years ago and been having a blast, rode all sorts of other bikes since '71, wanted to try something different, like many I wish I had thought of it sooner.

How old is 'old'?

57.

Should have done this when I was 20. I would have had to join one of those religious groups that allows multiple wives though. By now I would have had a whole harem. Damn these things attract the ladies, especially with a border collie on-board!

Or maybe it wouldn't be a problem because they are attracted to the dog in the sidecar and not the rider?

I also still have a bubby solo to play with and ride to work. Why am I working at this age? Oh, that's right - To fund my addiction to motorcycles and sidecars!
