How old were you when you got your 1st FJR?

I am curious if the stereotype is true that the FJR is enjoyed mostly by an “older” crowd (whatever that means). Let’s prove them wrong. Select your age range and don’t lie. This is a scientific study.

Awesome! I only saw 9 polls as of this writing. Sorry if I missed something but if you can point me to previous data, I would be interested.

Curious why you stopped the 5 year interval after 60..... results will be skewed. JohnC and I aren't happy.

And it has all been done before.

Ray is right. Lump me in with the 61 year olds, and I am old. Group me with the 100 year olds and . . .
you are incredibly optimistic.

I will keep my FJR until I can no longer pick it up when I drop it.

The encouraging thing I see is that the “older” guy’s (i’m 64) like john inspire me to know that I still have a fair mount of time to keep riding this thing. Seem’s That i’m Not the only one that wasn’t ready for the g-wing thingy. I do have a number of older wings and have no issue with them but wanted something a bit sportier and lighter/smaller. I do have a 76 1000 naked that I bought new and a 76 Ltd naked and a 78 that’s in line to be customized but those are all actually smaller/lighter than the fjr and way different than the current wing offerings.

Just looked at russ’s Offering and I feel better, thanks Russ.

I would have been younger when I bought my FJR, but I was too young to afford it.

Well crap. Instead of "how old ARE you" (as the title suggested) the poll was "how old WERE you". I voted wrong so have messed up your survey.

R!ider is right. This may be more of a poll of "how RICH are you".
