I have a question

I do not understand completely just what is 50+. Bikes, or age. If I need to have 50 bikes to be on this forum?

If you must ask, you're not old enough and don't have enough bikes.

I'm glad you used a lower case "b" Mr. 50+ stud muffin!

Actually it is the combined age of all the bikes you regularly ride. Mine is 60 (until my Paramount is finished and then it jumps to 100). If you ride new wheels you have no place here.

Nope. If that were the case everybody (at least all of the men) would qualify. Doesn't the bible say something about "lusting in your mind" counting as the same thing?

Grey is one of the obligations for this forum- If not grey then you have to put up with the American spelling. Only a couple of things to note, How many miles to a slice of pie?- That is very important- and pictures of rides are welcomed- If you don't post pictures then you get hounded till you do.

Welcome.
