Uh, I've been riding 11 years, but that isn't an option on the poll. I ride ~20,000 miles/year, without commuting.

Welp I started riding Dirt when I was younger and rode cruiser when I was 16 but to me that doesn't count since the experience is so different on a sportbike so I went with the 1-5 years

Hehe, I noticted that too Megan. I guess riders with 11-14 years don't count! :D

I've got about 10 years, but most of my miles have come in the past 3 years when I have been more serious about riding.

Been riding since '97 I believe so that would put me at 6 years. Damn Kawi you been riding that long and you still aint faster than me. :redflip


btw I fixed your poll so it would include riders with 11-14 years.

well this is my 5th season of riding. Most of my riding has been on the Kawi 250 with occasional stints on a VFR800 and a couple rides on a Honda Shadow. I threw myself under "1-5 years"

Started on a quad at 4.. Went to different bikes and such over the years.. never really had a steady ride, but, putr in plenty of saddle time...

I don't know if that counts as 15+ or not.. So, I ain't voting.

I'm 26 now and I started riding when I was 17 on an old 82 KZ 750, I still have that old bike sitting in the corner of the garage. Maybe I 'll pass that old relic down to one of my kids when they get a little older!

No sweat. Dude "couldn't touch" might be pushing it a little. I hung okay. Then again I was on a clapped out 600 with like 70 horsepower. You shoulda been kickin my ass. :D


It's more fair now. :D
