48 this November, the BRP is very enjoyable to all age groups, but mostly 40's and 50's
69 years old here--bought a used 2006 in 2008 for a TAT ride in 2009-- finished the 5000 mile ride on my birthday (68)--the ride included the WRT. In 2007 rode my GS to Prudoe Bay. Next summer another ride. Have not decided if it will be dirt or on road.
LIFE IS GOOD go after it while you can.
My Girlfriend is 21 and owns a 1994 XRL I keep joking that the bike is almost as old as her
51 and just put 1400 miles on my newer L in Montana and Idaho.
I've had my XR for 3 and a half years now.
44 years old. My '06 XR650L is the latest in a long line of XR's I've owned over the past 30+ years.
52.......I also have a Goldwing and a KTM 525 exc.
38. I got this bike about 2 ago coming this sept. I also have a 99R1 that has a s load on money dumped into. (it sits in the garage alot after the L showed up)I can't believe how much fun a bike that cost me $1400 used can give me. I keep telling myself I want a ktm 690E for my 40th birthday. But I keep putting money into the L. I just won a scotts damper for the L. Ben
43 .... many years with xr 400 ..... a few weeks with xr650 L
I'm 23 and have had my xrl650 for three years...
bought her brand from the showroom and took her out and promptly lost her virginity in the dirt....
I also ride Dl1000, a CRF450X, and Hayabusa.
48, bought my first "L" in '93, the year they came out. I have three now and have had 4 others since '93
just turned 52, just sold a 97' XRL and replaced it with two KTMs
how do you like your dl1000, im thinking about getting one for me and the wife to adv tour (mostly roads, thats why i have the xrl) but im torn between the wee and the vee...(please im not trying to start a debate!)
im just curious how it compares to your xrl as its a common item between us. (i know its two different types of bikes)
-sold for two orange bikes! :eek1
I love this bike, I have Pipes, big windshield and Gel seat. My wife loves to ride on the back. We travel alot on it. It gets good gas milage and runs very strong. Tires are cheap and easy bike to Mantaine. You can't go wrong with the 1000. Its power great for two up also.
I didn't think 63 would put me so far up toward the top of the age range. In the 80's I started riding seriously again and bought an XL500 then an XR500, then an XR600 an XR350 and an XR650L. They have all given me great joy and good service. The XR600r is brutal to start but I've finally gotten that one down to a kick or two. The XR650L is a great dirt cruiser I ride 20 miles to work (which includes 6 miles of dirt road).
I was 40+ when I got my XR650L. It's not a mid-life crisis, because I have been involved in various motorsports since college. Dualsport bikes are slowing down from participating in competitive events, actually.
You're asking the wrong forum. Most ADVRiders are middle aged, so those are the responses you are getting. Don't worry about age, it's just a number. It's easier for middle aged people to act like teenagers, than teenagers (thumpertalk.com, cough) to act like adults. The reason is that we old farts have many more years of practice acting like kids.
