I bought my first Vespa the day I turned 15 1/2 because in California I could drive a scooter at that age, but not a car... like all my friends. I bought my 2nd Vespa almost exactly 50 years later and now I've been driving it for 4 1/2 years.

Today I saw a post from a rider who is "nearly 60" (so he knows what he likes) and it got me wondering how old the riders on this forum are now and how long they've been riding.

Anyone care to respond?

70 in Fresno (10 years)

34...started with dirtbikes when I was 10 or so. Worked for a Lambretta mechanic through college...Been wrenching on my own Vespa's for 5-7 years or so.

The "seniors" in the club are always fun....better riders too, or at least more cautious and less wreckless (generally).

Just turned 50, don't consider myself a "senior", and I don't want my AARP card, thank you very much.

Started riding at 17 (friend's Honda CB 350), forged my Dad's signature on the permit (hey, I wanted to be "legal").

Took some years off till I turned 34, and I had a couple of Honda Shadows (and took the MSF course).

Took off some more years (it's complicated), and got my first scooter in 2013.

My Dad rode till he married Mom at 28, he raced Indians and rode Cushmans (1940s and 50s) in NYC. Took 30 years off the road, then rode for another 10 years (small motorcycles) until his ALS caught up with his ability to ride.

First vespa, my dad's delivery 50 (3 speed) on which I almost died on Christmas day when I was 13 (and riding illegally as the legal age was 14).
Second the 50 Special that i recently donated to my nephew.
Then at 19 i bought the VBB from a neighbor. That was 1982....

51 and, no please, don't call me senior (yet).

I really don't want to say,but what the hell - I'm 58. I have been riding something or other with two wheels since I was 15 - Harleys, Triumphs, Jap bikes, etc.... All were projects to some degree. The only ones I care to own now are 2T Vespas or airhead BMWs. I tried a ET4 and it bored me to tears, got rid of it within a month. Got a project now (Rally 200) so I'm set.

I'm 53. Been riding since I was in 5th grade.
A lot to be said for learning how to handle a bike on dirt to carry over to street riding.
I started on a Honda Trail 70
Then my mom's Trail 90
Honda Passport (50cc) in High School
Honda CR250 Elsinore
Yamaha XT500
Honda Elite 250

Married/Kids/Dog

Vino 125
Vespa 250 gts
Vespa VBA (Gift from my wife) the bike and I are the same age
Piaggio MP3 500

Sure I feel old at times, but for the most part, I feel and act younger than I am.

I had the misfortune of being born on Halloween while at the same time getting the gene that disdains dressing up. More precisely I was 57 last birthday and I included my age in my post as I get tired of being told by strangers ( usual young bucks with strong opinions and not much knowledge) online that I am an idiot. I have been told that in person much of my life, and those people now express many regrets about the passage of time while I find myself enjoying the freedom of mind that comes with having ridden unsuitable motorcycles up to the edge and not having fallen into the precipice.
I find the secret of youth comes in three parts, a strong generic inheritance is critical for happiness, it's hard to be joyful with chronic pain. Curiosity is a strong component of happy aging, and lots of good memories to fall back on are a reminder that you can and should take risks: fear of desire is crippling to happy aging.
In my avatar I was riding in California when there was no helmet law, after crossing the US and Mexico on a P200. A classic unsuitable bike for a stupid trip. No regrets at all.

73 years old here. Been riding a variety of motorcycles for about 10 years now. I pretty much rode every month until the polar vortex hit here in Michigan last winter. That broke my 7 year 'record' but good. Decided to just tinker with the scooter over the winter this year instead of riding.

Bought my used GTS250 last winter and am totally sold on scooters from now on. No plans to go back to a regular motorcycle and I'm pretty much sold on modern Vespas.

57. Rode a Suzuki 360 around LA in high school (with the wind in my hair - pre helmet laws...but then at 16 you are indestructible and don't need one.)
My parents were terrified and got me into a truck to divert my attention from bikes, and it worked. Stayed in trucks for decades.

In a discussion with my wife 10 years ago during a gas crunch, she looks at me and says "you should get a Vespa." That statement rang a bell in my head and the next day I was off to a Vespa dealer to buy an ET4 - after a brief stop at the DMV to get a permit.

The ET was a gateway scoot, anyone who is into Vespa scooters knows the rest. 😉

Aged 44 and started riding at 18.

There are times nowadays when I glance over my shoulder and for a split second I'm sure I can see the Grim Reaper following me. Luckily he's on a Lambretta so has failed to catch me yet - no doubt due to breaking down every 20 miles or so

Well this is starting to sound like an AA meeting, so ok here goes.

Hi, I'm Mike and I'm over 50.

Like most here I've always been fascinated by machinery. Still remember the time around 6 yrs old I took the little electric motor from an Erector Set and plugged it into the wall outlet. Yow.

Got a mini bike around age 12, and have owned a plethora of cars, motorcycles, and assorted other motorized toys since then. Dirt bikes, trail bikes, street bikes, old British, German and Italian cars... a few oddities, some rare and expensive ones, several clunkers. Enjoyed every one of them. Never in it for the money, just for fun.

Got the Vespa about 20 years ago when a neighbor knocked on the door, and said he was moving, did I want it? It was weird and ugly and had a motor so I said sure. The kids were too small to ride it and I was busy with other things, so I put it in the basement under a tarp and literally forgot about it.

Fast forward... son comes home from college last year and asks if we still have the Vespa. I say I think so. We (mostly me) haul it out, clean it up, and get it running. I've become very attached to it and ride it regularly. Still enjoy our motorcycles, but the quirkiness of the old scoot makes it more of an experience.

As someone above said, one of the secrets of happy aging is retaining a curiosity and desire to learn new things. I'd add another is maintaining a healthy sense of humor - seeing the funny side of situations and being ready, willing and able to laugh, especially at yourself.

Cheers all.

The sense of humor is vital. Laughing at oneself too. I call myself Mr Bean as I bumble through an unfamiliar project. The youngsters I work with call me the weakest link. Then ask ne how to do something.
Too many people fear aging unnecessarily. Death is inevitable but boredom isn't .
Gotta go "test ride" the Vespa. Tweak something I think.
Cheers
Michael.

I got my first bike on my 9th birthday, July 1969. Previously, I had ridden several friend's mini bikes. I've had some sort of bike ever since. I've raced, played and traveled and see my obsession with 2 wheels and a motor lasting much farther into the future. My 9th birthday present still resides in my basement and is one of my most prized possessions, and always will be. I remember my grandfather asking me to get something from the back of his truck like it was yesterday. It was amongst and under a bunch of feed bags from where he'd been to town earlier that morning. I'm sure I was the happiest person alive. I can't imagine how many miles that little bike has, but it provided me with the best childhood I could have dreamed of.

I'm about ready to turn 48. Rode a Rally 180 from about 84 to 92. Helmet laws went into effect here in Cali and it turned me off to riding. I was also moving on from the scene (Mod).

Selling my 180 was a choice I still very much regret. I attended High Rollers in 2014 and it was enough to start the fire. I found my 74 Rally a little later and am now back into riding...with a helmet. I'm still not real keen on the whole helmet issue, but I do now realize that my head seems a little more pliable than it appeared when I was younger, ha ha. The street seems a lot closer too.

One thing for sure, I love riding my Rally. I also think it makes people happy since I get so many "thumbs-up" and smiles from folks. I feel like I'm spreading cheer when I ride.

I just got a '60 Li125 to keep my Rally company. So it begins...

howdy, well I guess confession is good for the soul. 65 year old going on 13 and been road riding for 50 years and have owned quite a variety beginning with 64 Yamaha 250 road bike when you still had to mix the oil in the gas for this two stroke engine. note-it wasn't good for hill climbing.
