Poll on age of our cruiser riders

With all the articles out there about younger people not into cruisers or motorcycles at all for that matter lets see who is riding these bikes. At least in this forum. Poll will be open ended and totally anonymous.

Wolfy,your vote didn't show up.Only showing me and 1 other 50's.

For what it's worth,this is my first cruiser,in my 50's,but...ever since I was in my early teens I lusted after big hogs.Lack of funds is all that kept me off one till now

81.....82 in May if I make it..

Been riding again since 08 after a 53 year layoff....

5/22/18......Edit: I retired from riding last week because I just feel it is time and I don't want to get hurt or hurt anybody in case my brain/body malfunctions...Nice to be the oldest one...I still could ride if I wanted to, and very well, but it is time..I am at peace with it.

My first cruiser-like-ish was a GS450L at age 33. I briefly owned a Marauder in mid-2016 but never got it running right. Heph is my first real cruiser that actually goes.

Gripping the throttle, his knuckles went white with desire; the wheels of his Vulcan exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45...

The reason it didn't show up was because I was on Tapatalk and the voting option was not available there. I had to check-in to the regular forum-site to do that. So, it looks like little ol' me is the sole 70s dude here, so far, and that's OK by me.....I prefer riding alone anyway.

31 here. Just bought my first bike......2017 Vulcan S. I started with the idea of jumping on a Ninja 650 but that went out the window for a few reasons.
