As a retired 62-year-old I took up riding with the MSF course and purchased a classic 1986 Honda 700 Shadow. It was a lovely bike and I even did a ten-day cross-country ride on it. I soon realized I wanted a bigger bike and settled on a 2012 Haley-Davidson Heritage Softail. I love my cross-country trips on it. Recently I met an elderly gentleman who was admiring my bike outside a restaurant. We chatted a bit and soon his daughter came out. They then proceeded to mount their Indian Scouts and ride off. The old guy was 97 and rode bikes since he was 16! You're never too old.

I love these articles. Although I grew up on dirt bikes, and my dad had a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide and I was a passenger for many years behind my husband, and I had my endorsement for more than 30 years, I never had my own bike. So five years ago at age 59, I took the motorcycle safety course and bought my first motorcycle. It's a Suzuki GZ250. Until my last few rides, it was OK because the size of the bike doesn't equate to the sense of freedom that comes over me when I am on the road. I want a bigger bike for longer rides, but none of my girlfriends ride and I am single, so I go back and forth about continuing to ride, even though I love it. Riding solo all the time is getting old. However, these stories confirm I still need to keep doing what I love to do, even if it's solo. Thank you for sharing your passion!

No, I don't think you're crazy. Bikers have a special sort of sanity that's all! I love this attitude: "I found that I really enjoyed the long rides and traveling to interesting places with no real destination in mind."

This is such an inspirational story of a mature woman making a life-changing decision to ride a motorcycle.

I made the decision to ride at the age of 41. At the time, I had a magnificent riding partner, my husband. I passed the local motorcycle course, bought a 1999 Sportster 1200 and we were on our way.

After nine months, we found the motorcycle of my dreams - a 2002 Luxury Pearl Blue Heritage Softail. We enjoyed our rides, me on my Heritage and he on his Ultra Classic, until he became ill and passed away.

That was more than five years ago and since that time, I became a grandmother to a wonderful little boy. I gave up riding for a while but renewed my passion last summer. Still not quite 60, I have to say that I look forward to 60 and being a grandma on a great motorcycle!
