    I am really curious as to just how many senior citizens (65+) ride these bikes.
    I'm betting not too many. I might be the only one (69). Now that would be scarey!
    Thanks

    I am only 66, but that seems to qualify.

    Still riding the 03 Chopper I brought home new.

    My first Harley is still with me, but in pieces. Slowly rebuilding for the third time since 1974. Using the original engine, tranny, and gas tanks. But that is all. Things break, bend and get run over while traveling the road of life for that long.

    Good to hear your hanging in there. My daily driver is a sports car, but I also get in the wind, just not as much.

    I'm 70..... Sold my BD Chopper 2yrs ago for a HD Street Glide, but if I had unlimited resources I would had both. Not a matter of age. The BD was easier to handle than the Street Glide, comfortable, maybe not for as long a distance, and it lacked storage. I began riding at age 20. A custom was something I needed to experience and I'm glade I did. :2thumbs:
