    I attempted to get on two wheels long before I was actually able to get out there. My step-dad got me an old Honda, don't even remember the model, and it never ran. That didn't stop me from sitting on it and pretending. I got my license in 2003, but a couple unplanned vacations overseas slowed my purchase down. A friend gave me an 84 Honda Shadow I think it was. I purchased my first bike in 2006, still have it. I just got the FZ in March of 2015. My only regret is that I didn't get a bike sooner.

    I liked Tigershark's post. Look both ways before you cross a street on a green light. And slow down a bit. Well unless its just awesome twisty.

    I started out on a yz80d back a long time ago. Favorite bike is a kdx200 and some unrutted bar banging tight single track with perfect hookup. This new fangled computer controlled 09 is pretty nice so far.

    Does this poll only include motorbikes? Or can it include pedal bikes?
    I have 4 years on the street. Another ~10 years on MX.
    My whole childhood on freestyle BMX and ~15 years DH mountain bikes.
    Because of the pedal bikes, I feel more comfortable on a bike, rather than in a car.

    started in the dirt at 5 yr old, street at 16, finally got licensed and legal at 31. I guess I have been doing bikes for more than 45 years.

    funny my old man sold his bike two years ago, too worried about crashing.
    just sent me an email this week to help him find a manual for his new ride. LOL I told him he suffers from the same disease I do, once you're on two wheels you can't stop. I tried once, sold all the scoots and gear. made it almost a year without a bike...............almost. LOL

    Well, started at 8 on a Yamaha DT80 and now, at 41, still plugging away. 33 years for me. 34 in October when I turn 42 because the bike was a present for my 8th bday. Easily one of the most natural things I have ever done or taken to. I'd have offed myself years ago if I couldn't ride.
