What is the average age of the members in this FXR forum?
I know some of you are quite elderly :whistle: and some are quite young but I wonder what the overall average age is.
I just turned 64 in June

What it appears to me is the FXR seems to keep their riders youthful. I'm still wondering why I even wanted one in the first place. Haha

"Breed me"? LOL Thanks, that made my day!

I'm not a cult member, but I'll toss out a theory that the "older guys" seem to like the FXRs because they are actually old enough to remember them and/or know what they are.

Maybe a poll should be done on the average age of Frank Sinatra fans...

I cant imagine seeing a brand new FXR on the showroom floor. A bit before my time. But I appreciate it for what it is.

And Sinatra is great. Dean Martin. Marvin Gaye. Hell I love old music. I was raised by my grandfather listening to all the older music (in comparison to myself) and got to hear all of his harley stories about his '50 hydraglide he bought new. I'll see if he has pictures of it somewhere.

This could be a new thread - "Why did you get an FXR?"

Not even close. Because they still handle & can perform as good as the new Harley's, and look great doing it. The new softail frames, ride and handle really good but are still heavier stripped, than my P w/ fairing & bags.
