I'm 32, I'm sexy and I know it. Ask Bee Maa he'll tell you.

I turn 33 in June. I might not be so sexy then.

You certainly got Mrs BeeMaa all hot.
Of course it could be that she just had a menopause moment.

BTW - I'm 41 and the Mrs is 48.
Now excuse me, I have to find my Geratol.

I'm 46 now, but have had my hack (1979 Harley FLH) for 24 years, in my 20's no one ever picked on me about the 3 wheels, as I was the one haulin there beer and spare crap, in my 30's I started riding with different riders that did not understand the hack thing, and took some crap from them, I always had some 2 wheeler beater if needed, but as rides got longer i caved and in 1997 and got a new Electra Glide, the hack took a back seat to the ease of road trips with the new bike, to date the hack has 67,354 miles, and since 2003 has been only been used a few times, 3 years ago I took the motor apart for rebuild and that as far as it got. But some day it will be back out, running the grandkids around.

I just got back into riding bikes after 20 years of raising kids, buying a home and working my ass off. I've loved hacks for years but never had an opportunity, read cash, to buy one. After buying three bikes, a Bonneville, a TW200 and a Ninja, I'm looking to buy/build a hack rig. My wife isn't really into riding two up but a hack doesn't sound like a problem. I'm turning 50 in the Spring.

Rode in my first sidecar when I was 6, a fully enclosed job that could carry 8 kids. Started riding 2 wheels when I was 13. Bought my first sidecar age 51. Should have done it a lot sooner.

I'll be 58 in May, I put together my first rig about 5 years ago, a CB900 Honda and a Hitchhiker sidecar. I never really road it too much cause the Honda was a cold blooded beast that took forever to warm up. I traded it last spring for a 1999 KLR650/Sputnik setup and I've had a such a blast with that rig....
That I'm working on mating a 2005 BMW R1200GS to a Dnepr sidecar.

I'm 54, got into hack'n 3 years ago when I decided I wanted to ride my brothers bike, (2007 DL1000 V-Strom) He passed away at 53. As an above knee amputee, sidecar was the only option and I love it. So if I am "the average sidecarist" with 1 leg, all you guys, to average out with me must have ......oh never mind bout that right there...

Got into hacks at 42 but wanted to dive right in earlier... Finances held me back. So it was solo bikes only.
Time moved along, so did career..
My original idea was to hack a Hinckley Bonnie but decided against as I figured a company putting forth a rig from the factory was worth a look. Pulled the trigger on a 2008 GU and well wouldnt you know, its the only bike in the stable right now.

Well my mom will be 91 in July and is still living on her own. Does not have 2000 acres but does walk to church everyday and the grocery store when necessary. No she does not ride but I have had her on my bike when she was in her 80's. She said it did not feel like we were going over 100 MPH

2000 acres????? Does he cut his own lawn?????

Bought my first hack at 62 yrs - an '85 GL1200/EML hack - Treated my father in law with a ride to Homer Alaska for his 90th birthday - life and celebrations do not get any better - will surrender the two wheel bikes before I retire this one! The sidecar community is awesome, as everyone stands ready to support.
