Welcome to the asylum!
Almost 67,been riding solos for over 50 years...hacks over 40, About as good as it gets in my mind.
Turbocharged CB750 with a Bingham MK II which is also 40 some years old
I bought gas and a pack Luckies for 25 cents each!
That's what I said, I bought a gallon of gas and a pack of Luckies for 25 cents each. I'm gonna go take my nap now.
Will be 71 tomorrow. Still working full time. Retired once and may again sometime. Planning on 5 weeks in Alaska this summer...using truck/camper not Ural or BMW.
Most of us no longer use the OHHHHH word. I remember .25 gallon of real gas not vegetable fuel everyone was nicer on a honda (RIGHT) driving 100mph on a gravel road and changing 4 tires between PG and Mcbride on the old jeep trail before the hwy was finished. Driving thru the hydro tower on hwy 16 Terrace to Prince Rupert. Riding legal since 1965
I may have responded to this thread before, but too lazy to look. But, while I hate to admit it I find the hack sometimes more fun to ride. But, I find myself sometimes making excuses when I'm riding it. Someone might ask about it and I interject, unsolicited, that I also have multiple two-wheel bikes. They didn't ask but perhaps it's just my way of saying 'Hey, I can ride a two-wheeler also and I ride this hack out of choice, not necessity.'
U-turns on narrow roads are a pain, not so with a hack. While it doesn't snow in FL, well, I read and see lots of folks having fun in the snow with hacks, not two wheelers. And, let's face it, they are cool.
Enjoy your trip to Alaska. Lived there back in the '70's. Be sure to spend a couple of days in Haines, and of course you must be
going to Denali; pop down to Kenai. Oh, be sure to take a gold pan!
Guess it's time to fess up...I'll be 75 next month. Been two wheeling since 1949 [ 3.5 hp Salsbury scooter ]. My 'tug' is
41 years old, my 'chair' is 28 yo. ( Moto Guzzi Eldorado w Watsonion Palma ), and I still have, and ride, three two wheelers. [ '76; '79; '03; ] although my knees are telling me that I'll be spending more time on the rig! If I had to sell my bikes...the rig would be the last to go!
I remember cigs at 24 cent and a penny box of matches made 25 cents total. And gas during price war was as low as 17.9, normally 21.9. I made 50 cents a hour pumping gas.
Still don't have a hack but maybe when I get old I'll get one.
I'm 34 and have just recently got my first combination, my daughter is 5 and my dog is 3. The 1997 bike is the newest vehicle I have ever owned and was also the most expensive but it came with the chair profesionally mated which is good for a newby.
You are gonna have a blast.
Welcome to the asylum.
Thanks i'm enjoying it so far, at first I was amazed now heavy a light sidecar felt and thought i should have spent far more and got one with steering mods but I'm getting used to it now.
37-ish. Riding since I was 13, legal since 18 (bought my first bike the day after my birthday. mother was NOT happy.) Picked up my first hack 3 years ago and will always have one from now on.
20 yo. Just got my first sidecar earlier in the year... well actually got my first 5 sidecars earlier in the year. Long story but ive got plenty of em lol
I wish I could've afforded a hack when I was that age. Ah well, I'm 34 now and I'll take delivery of my first hack as soon as I return from this deployment.
I tell ya, 9 months of combat pay and no taxes or living expenses really makes a lot of things within reach all of a sudden. Debt free and bought a rig to boot? HOOAH!
Got my motorcycle license in 1975 and my first hack in 2006.

Exactly the same dates for me plus my second hack (Rokon) in '08 and third (Hondigan) in '13 at the ripe old age of 57.
68, been hackin' since '72. Dist 37 #1 sidehack in '75....fun. Riding since 1960.
I'm 70 and have only been on three wheels for 6 months. It's very different, but once I got used to it I have found it much less stressful.
