Wow, just when it was looking like the average age was falling I wander into the room.

Getting my first brick at 65.

Howdy, I turned 64 yesterday, Easter Sunday!  (wife sez she still loves me, when I'm.....)  Thought about dying Friday and coming back on my birthday but don't think the family would have appreciated the humor.  Got my K when I was the tender age of 33, in a couple year's I will have had the same bike half of my lifetime. :yow   Not many places, people or other things I can say the same for.  Must be something too these contraptions.

Ain't that the truth! Some deep thoughts come to mind but you must love the bike:changing bikes is less stressful than changing wives/partners(alimony)or losing friends(grief).

I've never had anything but a K75, have only ridden 3 other bikes than a K75 and have had K75s 5X longer than I've had any specific girlfriend. Obviously, I'm not a well person.

Both my Beemers are just half my age, but somehow they are eligible for the cheaper "Historic" registration.

Historic!!!!!   What does that make me????

It means you're eligible for specialty plates but aren't allowed on the freeway.

Classic Plates in CT do not have any restrictions as to what highways you can use.
Also the value for property taxes in the town where you live is limited to $500.00
So most of my vehicles only have an $11.50 property tax on each one.
