RE: Average CB1100 Rider Age
Since May of 2013? Yep I have added 4 years and 1 slot. Deep into the 8% group now. Don't know that I will make it into the last group. We shall see.

I turn 80 in a three weeks so you will have too add another category beyond age 75 Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin
No worries ferret, you'll make it into the older categories with ease.

Thanks ferret Thumbs Up Thumbs Up
I have uncommonly good health and strength for my age and I plan to ride until I can't.
I just put the CB in winter storage this weekend and now have to wait until next year.
At my age I sometimes wonder how many "next year's" of riding I have left, but don't dwell on it.
I also think I have the good sense to know when to quit - at least I hope I do Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

RE: Average CB1100 Rider Age
On today's ride I saw an 'older gentleman" shuffling up his sidewalk towards his garage and I thought to myself "That guy is chasing me. Wonder how long before he catches up with me"... ie: wonder how many more years before that is ME? Just in the last 6 months I've gone from going up steps a foot on each step, to step up a step, bring my other foot up beside it, step up a step, bring my other foot up beside it.

Sounds like a bad knee?? I resemble that remark too. Hope it gets better.

Sorry to hear that. Let's hope it's something that can be corrected.
Remarkably, I have no knee or hip problems and really haven't slowed down that much and can ride all day with the best of them.
But I take nothing for granted and take good care of myself with a healthy lifestyle, etc., and I have genetics on my side.
