    Happy birthday. Now you will be besieged by AARP (if you haven't been already). One of the joys of becoming "mature."
    Reminds me of the woman who, in response to a birthday question about what was the best thing about turning 93, said "No peer pressure."

    Welcome. I hit it last January. I'm still waiting for my AARP stuff to arrive though. I must have made it onto their mailing lists by now.

    Newbie 50 shows up and shames 90% (or more) of the bikes in the group!

    Sigh.

    Welcome anyway.

    I just noticed the newbie is from San Diego. Perhaps DG should be her mentor.

    Happy birthday and welcome! I'm 10 months ahead of you.

    All this talk about the AARP...you just have to use them to your advantage. For example, I'm going to the AARP convention in Boston in September because I got a ticket to see Rod Stewart for $25! Me and the other old farts rockin' to the oldies. It should be fun.

    Hello and happy birthday! Welcome to the best darn little group on bike forum.

    NICE bikes, too!

    What size is the pilot you are selling? My sis is looking for a new used bike.

    Most excellent, the average age here was starting to skew too high, young blood is good! Maybe we can get lower insurance rates now.

    Are you a hottie? I can't tell from your avatar. Post pictures. Go to "Ladies of Foo" for inspiration. But it's not important. A gentle smile and a sweet disposition are all it really takes around here.

    Happy Birthday, and welcome! This forum is one of the best perks of turning 50.

    AARP isn't so bad.... Kevin Costner is on the cover of this month's issue. Paul McCartney was on the cover a few months ago. I never knew 50+ was so young.

    Happy Birthday! You got two great rides. Keep 'em both and use one as your "rain" bike. It'll really annoy the folks you ride with.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
