I had a bike for about 5 years, then took a 24 year break. Been back a little more than a year now.

I've been riding motorcycles for over 40 years and have over 650,000 miles on them. I've riden a Honda 160, a few Yamaha RD400's, put 36,000 miles on my Yamaha XV920R twin in it's first year, owned a big twin Harley, a Yamaha FJ1100, a Yamaha 1200 VMAx, and a hole bunch of other bikes.

Now I just ride my Ninja 500R around town in Las Vegas.

I just started this year, about 2 months ago to be exact. so far I've managed to log over 2000 miles on my bike, and become an absolute ADDICT when it comes to twisties. no drug can get me high like this, especially not legally, or safely.

Have had a motorcycle riding passion my whole preteen/teenage life but obviously with cautious parents and little to no money i couldnt make my dream come true until i got a real job/life about 3 years ago.

Started in 1977 after the USAF let me free, & had 3 different bikes up to '86 or '87.
Got off to be more certain of being around to raise 2 kids.

Then, started again 2-3 weeks ago.
(Always kept my motorcycle endorsement though).

Licenced through MSF in '01. I had limited riding time before then and limited riding time since then until May of '04 when I got my ZX. In the short amount of time I've had my ZX, I've crammed in about 5-10 years worth of riding experience doing Trackdays, racing, trackday instructing and now woods trails & motocross on my KX250.

Oops, I should've been in the less than 5 year category. I've been on two wheels for just over 4 years.

Have been riding for just over 17 years. ;D

Living in Canada might work out to be at total of 6 years. With the riding season being so short.

Kind of like if you were born on a leap year ;)
