I'm curious to know what's the age of most geezer glide owners. This includes all bikes in the touring family. This poll is not public so your name will not be revealed. So..how old is ya??

Me...I'm 26.

31, bought at 28. For me if you do any serious riding its the way to go. Though I know some who are tougher then me.

Also if you ride your bike day to day it makes a big difference.

I get that "Geezer Glide" crap all the time and I just smile.:thumbsup: Every ride I've been on, long or short, I get, "Man I've got to get me one of those!" I met a 24 year old with an Ultra a couple months ago, said he liked to jam while he rides.

Bought my geezer glide at 31 (32 now).

Funny thing, almost everyone I ride with (AZFal is the exception) has moved from the other rides to either a Road King or EG now. I just heard the latest, a friend of mine on a Sporty 1200 (04) just bought a RK Custom.

!drunk!

22 year old Road Glider here. It's my daily driver when I'm in the states. That shark-nose fairing, some soft lowers and I'm rockin' year round. Had smaller bikes with no fairing or windshield, or 'bags for that matter. I needed to upgrade to allow me to put on the kind of miles I wanted to. I average about 1K miles a month when I'm stateside. I love this bike.

How many people still ride a smaller bike? I've though about getting one for zipping around town. But don't know if I would ever ride it. Was thinking building a softail, or rebuilding high mileage one.
Think about maybe an enduro now. Atleast this week.

Make sure you get an enduro. Don't try to relive your glory days w/ a motocross bike. I've got a KX250 to tide w/ my daughter on her XL100, and they've become much more high-strung over the years...
Beat you up on trail rides, too.
I'm old.

You got that right. A few years ago I picked up a KDX not KX model. Much more suited to trail/enduro riding. The KX line is way too peaky for trails.

But, back on topic now. I'm 49 and picked up an Ultra back in November of '05. This was in addition to my '04 FXSTI that I still own and have no intention of selling. I love both. The Softail will become my day-tripper and commuter while the Ultra will be used mainly for trips and 2up riding. They both have their own qualities.

Just turned 65. Started out with a '53 Hydra-Glide when I was 18. Then had 2 '68 EG's, one had a side car, then an '87 EG and now the '01 Ultra which was triked at 20k after dropping it in Canada with my wife on board and loaded down......
