Ok, I've got 3 months to go before I hit the three score years and ten. 

After 7 slipped discs and a heart attack I'm still kicking off the Super Rocket and Golden Flash in order for me to attend camps and rallies on a regular basis.  If it's worth doing I'll make the effort.  If it isn't I'll make an excuse.

Even so, there is absolutely no way that I feel my age.  Come on.....bring it on!!  There's loads of riding in the old boy yet

 Not going to do the mathematics on it, must be  Old enough to know better, young enough to keep doing it......I've had to buy some new parts for mine, so that makes me younger than most of it- *smile* One of the "new bits" was "new old stock"- the Conical front end...  *conf*

Hi
Getting awfully close to the 60 mark, born August '55.

But I guess that means closer to retirement, and more time for the BSA hobby - this seagoing worklife takes up too much time, and prevent me for participating in a lot of good biker trips and weekends.

  Way to go Kiwi George from New Zealand, I would be non BSA owner now if Musky had not talked me out of it, THANKS MUSKY ! !    Wow with all your disc problems and heart attacks, and you still make 3 rides a week with your club, THAT'S AMAZING ! !  You are the same age as myself, and I am not going to complain about a little knee pain from kicking starting my RGS anymore, it is just at the end of the day, when having to start it more than 4 times.  So does any one know what the average age is now, we have had a lot of responses, with more to come I am sure.
     We are all dying starting the day after we are born, because that is when it all begins.

                                              "LIVE TO RIDE- RIDE TO LIVE"   

This says it all, I will still be riding this 62 RGS when I am 90, if I can still hold it up, and if I can not hold it up, I might make some bicycle type training wheels, and if my knee will not let me start the bike, I will get Steve McFarlanes electric start system .  There is people here on this forum that have a lot worse medical issues than I do, and still ride with out  WHINING ! ! ! !    All of us old tarfs have to stick together,    so lets go and ride........
