Well, if you go by the text book definition of mid-life crisis, than I went through mine at the age of 25!



So I guess I'm gonna be checking out kinda early!

Having just returned from Italy, apparently the EU has extended that ban to other countries as well.

Default Mid-life

Please. I know some men really do have a serious mid-life crisis, but these accusations often seem like the cries of some women who feel threatened by their men taking up a new interest. God forbid they be forced to relinquish some control and attention.



Ladies, relax and let your men have fun with motorcycles (instead of some other less wholesome outlets.) You'll both be happier.

OK, I'll admit it. My conviction for aggravetd homicide had a lot to do with my leaving riding for 19 years. Due to an attempt to jump the wire, I lost my my privileges for using the motocross course in the penitentiary infield.

I had the same bug hit me too. I rode for 17 years. Took six years off to get divorced, remarried, have kids.....

At 41, must be the magic year, I bought a brand new Triumph Sprint RS. Bad Idea, Laying on the gas tank was no longer fun after 20 minutes. Should have purchased the ST.



Traded it on a Concours. Great tourer, bad commuter. Sold it. Now have a 1986 Yamaha Fzx700 and a 2002 M2 Cyclone. Wife hates both. Bottom line- There is no perfect bike. Try them all and buy the one your wife hates the most.
