Or too old to remember what it's like to go fast!

I think a lot of it has to do with being discerning and looking beyond what the masses ride.

Don’t be depressed, I hit 63 a few months ago and survived. Hell, I just came in from kick starting my 520 because the damn 14 month old Lithium battery took a crap on me. Yeah, I got it started, 1st kick!

36 years old now. Rode dirt bikes as a kid and into my teenage years, but had to drop the hobby once I got into the working world. So after about two decades, I'm getting back into it.

74 years old here. I've come to accept that riding at my age is a privilege many people do not get to partake in. 2017 390.

Just turned 50.

The lack of riders under 30 is most likely due to beta not making 50, 65, 85 and 105 cc bikes. Kids are growing up on other makes and develop brand loyalty which isn't usually overcome until they get older and wiser. Beta easily becomes as big as KTM if they branched into MX and made real bikes for kids. That said, I like showing up on the line looking different than the cool aid crowd.
