Real funny you mention that, I'm 35 and bought my first new Beemer 3 years ago. Even funnier, in this group we ride with is a friend of mine who's in her 50s and she and her husband have a couple beemers. Her nephew is 19 and he rides with us too, he has (of course) a gixxer and a hyabusa. Well, one day, my friend said to him "Trent why don't you just get it over with, sell those two ridiculous things and get a 1200GS, you will wind up with one eventually anyway." A 19 year old kid, just not gonna happen.
