    grew up in a farming/ranching area where kids were driving tractors and farm trucks for their family farms at 12 so police didn't care as long as you followed the rules of the road.

    Started riding in 2005 at the age of 31 on a 200cc scooter. Sold that this spring and got a 1984 Honda Magna V65 (1100cc).

    just wondering since there's no one around my age who rides around here. i'm gonna be 20 next summer and plan to start riding in spring

    my parents say i'm too young.. and my friends tell me they don't want to go to my funeral :squint:

    I think i'm just gonna start bringing different gear home, one at a time :o
