Just turned 60. Still not quite sure how that happened. My first bike was an '82 Suzuki GS650G back in '83. Now riding the '04 Bonnie and an '07 Weestom.

I turned 65 yesterday. I love the Bonneville which I continue to modify to my taste. I like to work on mechanical things........the Bonneville is so easy to take apart and reassemble. I hope to be able to ride my Bonnie for many years to come.

53. My '07 Thruxton (new to me this summer) is the kind of bike I always wanted as a kid but could never afford. I've been riding since I was 20 and I'm still making up for lost time.

'07 Thruxton: Rox Speed 2" risers, 130w/90w headlight w/ relay, OEM tank pads, OEM fly screen, TPUSA carb powerpack special, Hagon nitro shocks, Progressive fork springs, "old style" fork gaitors, Napoleon mirrors, screw-in oil temp guage

40. I've owned a wide variety of bikes since I started riding on the road at 20. Purchased my first Triumph this past Summer, a 2012 Bonneville mag wheel. Absolutely love it for lots of reasons we already know about! It just does so many things really well; not over powered but not under powered and; a phenomenal aftermarket.

31. Bought the bike in 2010, my first bike. Never road before, or even paid much attention to motorcycle aesthetics before then. I think I've gravitated towards the Bonnie for the classic design, and utilitarian riding position. Spent most of my teenage years busting my knuckles under the hood of musclecars, so this was a rational (or irrational, depending who you ask) for me.

36. Started riding scooters 12-years-ago. Took MSF course 10-years-ago. Smashed the hell out of that poor Nighthawk CB250 and got my largest bike this year, a 2012 Bonnie Black for the looks and the ride.

Not long turned 61! Back in the 60's I was riding a Lambretta TV 175. Wish I still had that scooter. Now riding a Bonnie SE and loving it. Have over the years owned three Harley's, two Fatboys and a Nightster. Two Speed Triples, a Street Triple and a Speedmaster. Not all at the same time however.

That's what I'm talkin about
