I am 69 years old, I live in the Albany, NY area. I did some dirt bike riding in my teens, and became a licensed streetbike rider late in life, 20 years ago, at age 49. I was also a certified RiderCoach for the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. Since then I've owned (in order) a 1997 BMW R850R, a 2000 Honda Valkyrie Interstate, a 2007 Suzuki Burgman 650 Exec, a 2012 Victory Cross Country Tour and a 2008 Suzuki Burgman 650 Exec. I do a lot of day tripping in the summer, and usually ride to NC twice a year.
