Now that I have your attention! I was conferring with an esteem member here and we remarked how many " Newbies " have joined our community in the last few months. In honor of this we decided to resurrect an old tradition in a new thread. You veterans will recall the thread entitled " occupation ". We would like to repeat that theme for all those members who have joined us since. For all, the question is this: " What do you do professionally, or have done, to support your love of riding ? " We encourage the " veterans " to re-post as a re-introduction to our new members. Your cooperation is sincerely demanded. Since the duty has been heaped upon me I will begin: Age: 53. 25 years as a garage door serviceman. Hey! It's a job, it's not my life. ~ Lee.

O.K. I'll break the trend. I just turned 60 in December 09, I retired in December 05 at the age of 55, I had 30 years with Hostess Cake as a route drive and at 55 years old I had the golden 85 which means we can retire at 100% of our benefits at that time, so needless to say I retired on December 18, 2005. I have been riding Gold Wings since 1985 and my 08 is my 6th Gold Wing.

Retired Jan 2008 after 30 years running Heavy equipment,turned 65 last Oct.
I think there's still some Diesel fuel in my veins LOL Operating 60 tons of
cold steel every day gave me an appreciation for the nimbleness and response of
my MC's . I started riding in 1966 after my Navy years,man that was a lifetime ago.
I'm a proud Canuck,planning another MC tour through the rockies this summer with the
boys,three of them,nice to see them follow in the old mans footsteps :)

37. Bookkeeper from Long Island. Got over the concept that the Goldwing was an old man bike before I hit my first 100 miles.

I rode motorcycles for a beach city police department for 15 years, and currently ride a desk. I have been riding motorcycles since 1965, my currrent rides being a 2008 Wing and a 1975 Norton Commando Roadster. Oh yea, I'll be 60 in June
