    57 and still going strong and loving my 'bird. Wife (54) loves it, too. It's still the perfect blend
    of sport and tour for my money; it's great for carving a canyon and great for two up touring.

    I'll be 45 in December, this is the best bike I've owned. It is a pleasure riding the bird.

    Re: Just How Old are Birdies

    At 1st glance the poll is a lil misleading.
    The increments are not equal as you get older.

    Yeah all my family said that;; You are too old for a bike like that.(I'm only 48)
    I could have made them all faint if I could have borrowed a stretch busa for about a 1/2 hour. lol

    Re: Just How Old are Birdies

    The older I get, the more I appreciate this bike. I've got no back issues, so it's a pretty easy sell.

    I'm 28 and will be 29 on the 18th.

    At least that what I tell myself each year around this time......
    Is this the spot where I am supposed list all the bikes I have ever owned? Or maybe just all the farkles I have on the one I own now???

    Re: Just How Old are Birdies

    I will be 50 in September.
    ANY bike makes feel like I did when I first started riding.
    But the Bird still does it the best.
    As said above, It's great when you pull up in a group of bikes with considerably younger riders, and take off the lid.
    First they are surprised that an older bloke is on a hyper bike, then they realise they are admiring a ten year old bike.
    Still makes me grin.

    Re: Just How Old are Birdies

    I will be 53 this year. I have heard it said
    SECOND CHILDHOOD
    MID-LIFE CRISIS
    WORRIED ABOUT GETTING OLD
    My wife of 29 years said it best--
    It is not second childhood, because I don't think he is done with his first
    yet!
    You are never too old to have a happy childhood!

    Re: Just How Old are Birdies

    I'm 40 going on 28.
    I bought my 97 bird as my 40th b-day gift for myself this year. I test drove one at a Honda dealership back in 99 and always wanted one after that. I've put on 600 miles so far and smile every time I lean into it and whack the throttle.
    My 12 year old son rides with me sometimes and loves tooling around the winding back roads here in Maine. Every time I mention I'm going out for a short spin he's getting his boots on and asks "Can I come too Dad?". The other day we went out and with the wind in my face and the sweet night air it brought back memories of when I was 19 or so and rode around on my Honda VT-500 Ascott or my friends Kawi ZX-10 (which I eventually bought from him). That's good stuff.

    Re: Just How Old are Birdies

    30 going on 31 later this year... have had the XX for a year and a half now... had a BMW F650 for a while before that.
    I know i'll buy a BMW R1200GS or other similar dual-purpose bike at some point of time going forward... (some of the more scenic destinations in India don't offer roads that the XX will enjoy)... one thing's gotten seriously clear of late though - the XX won't get sold to fund the dual. Is a keeper. Unlikely there'll be a better bike to ride.
