There is an old "How old are you" poll, but it was started in 2007 and died out in 2009.  A lot has changed since then, so it will be interesting to see if our demographics have changed.   Thumbsup

127 views and only 8 votes in the poll.    I wonder if most of those views are google web crawler ad bots or some shit.    Thumbsdown

The poll doesn't show up on Tapatalk so us phone folk can't vote. I'll do it next time I ride here on a PC.

Hmmmm.

I'm 53.  Someone above posted about how long they'd been riding, and I realized that I've been riding motorbikes for almost exactly 30 years.  I bought my first bike in August of 1983.


So far, only seven people younger than 40 have voted.  Ouch.   Sad  Not to get overly metaphysical here, but does this reflect an issue within motorbiking in general?  The motorbiking obsession certainly would be healthier with an influx of young blood.


Or maybe the impact on motorcycling of safety overconsciousness in general?  And why is the richest society the world has ever known so scared of stuff?   Headscratch

Good for you!  I think I'll stay here if you don't mind, though.

I've got nothing against more "mature" riders.  Just think it's strange there aren't more guys my age here.  Could be they've all been run off by all the political BS, or maybe they just didn't think they fit in.  Over at Adv Rider, that's certainly not the case and there seems to be a more balanced mix.  Not sure why.

I'm guessing most of the u-40 crowd is generally not interested in touring and primarily ride sportbikes. Our local sportbike group is probably about 80-90 percent under 40 and it's like pulling teeth to get them out of the city limits.

I'm 62 and I act like I'm 30. I just bought my second ZX14. I put 60,000 miles on my first one before selling it and buying another.  Age is a state of mind.  I walked across Spain last year, a 600 mile walkabout.  I still walk, bicycle, hike, climb mountains, ski and ride every opportunity I get.   I'm pretty much as fit and as strong today as I was in my 30's.  The less you do the less you will be able to do.  Keep moving and don't slow down.  It's harder to hit a moving target.

Add me to the group that was under 40 when I got here, but no longer.

Odd part is, less chronic pain now than I was in my 30's (long standing back issues that have mostly been resolved), but less energy now too. Those two things shouldn't go together.  Headscratch

S/T bikes, just like D/S bikes, tend to draw an older crowd. Why? As we age we tend to back away from the extremes of the sport. On the typical D/S ride the over 50 crowd runs around 50%, same for most rides involving S/T bikes.  On the other hand if you're 50 or older and show up for a sportbike ride or  at the local MX track you may get called "pops." Smile

Are their exceptions? Sure, some old riders continue to rock on MX tracks, harescrambles, etc and tear up the street or track on sportbikes but they are in the minority compared to the younger crowd.  Just the way it is.

As for the aging demographic of sport-touring? I think it's mostly because of the lower number of folks coming into motorcycles over all.

And yes, the ADV market is "hot" and the S/T market has cooled.  For one thing the big-ass bikes they are calling ADV bikes these days are powerful, comfy, and have lots of cool bells and whistles.  And most importantly they have that "Adventure" moniker attached to them. Pure marketing genius at work.  You go play on your "Sport-Tourer" I'm jumping on my "Adventure bike". Doesn't matter that they are both likely to be ridden on the same roads and end up in the same places, one is cooler than the other. Wink

I'm so glad that you posted this up, Windblown.  

I just realized that I'm missing out!    EEK!   I'm not having adventures, I'm just sport touring!   I gotta go get me one of those bikes that takes me on adventures.   Lol








Seriously, though, I think you nicely summarize what's going on out there.   And perhaps our risk-averse society perceives adventure bikes as being friendlier somehow than, say, sportbikes.  Even though many adventure bikes are legit sportbike fast.   Shrug

Yep. Riding an "Adventure" bike makes your piss shoot out 4' further and when you put your foot on the peg just right while standing next to the bike you'll look just like Capt. Morgan. Smile

Well, after 3 1/2 years, the answer to the ultimate question is: “No.”
