I am 47 and have just bought my first bike. I am happily married (Well, relatively... My wife is none too happy about the bike) and a of 3 children (16, 13, 11). At present, I do not have a motorcycle license, but will do the written part (M1) soon. I plan to take a course to get my 'M2' in a few months. I am an elementary school principal. I am your typical academic, with no experience with machines. So, I was very excited to find this site. I intend to pick people's brains as much as possible!
