    49... just... I have owned VFR's since I was 33. I have had CB1000R, CBR and this by far is the best bike. And guess what, every time I get on it and wring its neck and get it up to speed, I still feel like I am 33. I hope when I am 75, I will still be climbing on board and racing it through the twisties. Keep doing the same thing all the time and you never get old....

    61. Age isn't the problem, it's the high mileage that's killing me. Disabled Vet with a fused spine, but it beats getting shot at on a REGULAR basis. When I can no longer ride, the VFR will go in the living room to look at.

    Thanks for your sacrifice Scotto
    Fused neck here as well
    But the joy outweighs the pain.

    I’m 50 and I’m also a wife. My husband is 61 and we both now have VFR’s. Not too old at all.

    One day all motorbike questions will be inclusive of female and male riders ...one day.

    +1 on that. Just around the corner from 68, though my wife, at 64, prefers pillion. I didn't even get my first VFR till age 56. (the black & white 800s are awesome)

    My next birthday will be my 71st. My gorgeous wife is 56. After a couple of decades of riding heavy V-Stars, three years ago I came across a ‘14 white VFR 800 and fell in love all over again. My wife said “No... It has to be red.” And so it was. Here we are a happy couple with this stunning Ferrari red VFR waiting for its first ride of the season. Still a bit cold, and there ‘s also some residual salt on the roads here in Nova Scotia. I did have to install risers (from Moto Pump) - my spine (neck area) has been hit with arthritis, but I feel blessed that such a minor modification can keep me on the road. Today my riding is more focused on smoothness rather than speed. The VFR is very comfortable - we’ll be out at every opportunity enjoying this beautiful province of ours with its many twisty and scenic roads. The VFR has not ruined our marriage; it has helped it. It’s all about inclusion.
