After 35 years of biking I sadly had to take a break from it 2 years ago due to medication (it affects my balance). I will be back though, oh yes. :)

No clipped in pedals then? Would look nice with some Crank Brothers egg beater pedals...

Nah, don’t like em. I can wear the sexy Lycra, or rock some shorts/jeans and chilling gear and cycle to work/pub etc wearing trainers or shiny work shoes. Never really got on with them.

I wouldn't call myself a biker but I have a bike (Honda Blackbird): a few hundred miles a year but every time I go for a "last" ride before I hang up my (Dainese, natch) leathers I decide to hang onto it for one more summer... (stock photo, same colour)

I'm not a cyclist either. I also have one of those other bikes. You know, the ones they forgot to fit an engine to so you have to use your bl**dy legs. Idiots. Mine's a carbonfibre Specialised, flat bars, proper pedals like Amormusic's, and racks for Ortleib panniers, topbox and frontbox. In 2015, her outdoors and I rode it 850km along the Camino Frances from St Jean Pied de Port in the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela. 18 days sticking to B and C roads as close as possible to pilgrim's walking route rather than head down max miles stuff, knackering but hugely satisfying.

Why hang up your leathers?  I'm looking to book more trackdays this year, despite breaking a collar bone.  Again.  I'm 70 now.

Yep,  59 and still riding a 450 MX bike, only stopped racing last year because of other priorities,    Ninja and a Harley for the road!

How does it go,  "ya don't stop riding because of getting old, You get old because ya stop riding"  or words to that effect......

This was my last bike, sold shortly before Christmas. Before that I rode old British, the most recent being a 1954 Velocette MSS. I think I may have given up riding, though I may be tempted by the new Guzzi.

I've had a few bikes over the years, started with a Suzi GT185 in 1977, since then I have had:

RD400C yammie wheelie machine.

a couple of small yammie  2 strokes (250 and a 200 Ycs3e)

CB400F2 Honda Yoshi cam, K & N filters and Dustall zorst.

XS750 Yammie a bit of a dog.

GT750 Suzi so thirsty

Z1000ST Kwacker big and heavy.

R100RS Beemer most comfortable bike I have ridden for long distance, used to ride Stevenage to Livingston and back most weekends for about a year or so.

K100 beemer stolen :(  no real opinion, only had it a month.

GPZ750R Kwacker heavy, but quite quick.

GPz500S Kwacker put me off twins for life

GPX600R Kwacker stolen :(  As quick as the GPZ750R but handled better. Toured Scotland for 2 weeks on this camping.

finally FZR250 exup, had this little pocket rocket for 10 years, loved it.
