    OK, I'm 68 last Monday. Happy and proud I lasted this long.
    I ride an ST-S. I find the Ryker interesting with the shaft drive like my older Honda Sport Touring bike.
    I also like the CVT transmission as experienced on my wife's Burgman.
    Just no interest in changing as I'm happy with the Spyder ST and love touring.

    I thought 99 was 'just 66, only doin' it standing on ya head!'

    My 94 y/o Mum & her 102 year old friend still run a weekly 'gathering for the old folk', most of whom are 20+ years younger than them!! (Frequently in mind AND body!!)

    Mind you, Mum doesn't ride a motorbike or drive anymore, but not thru lack of trying!! You ever seen one of those wheeled walking frames rolling backwards down an access ramp with a 'Lady of a certain age' seated aboard steering via the brakes & shrieking with glee! Yeah, if you do, it's probably her!

    You don't stop ryding because you get old.... you get old because you stop ryding!

    I'm 60 and will get the Rally if it's what I think it's going to be and yes I will travel on it. If it isn't everything I'm hoping for I'll be getting the F3T.

    I'm 55 and getting the Rally. But I also plan on buying a two wheeler for sunny days. A Ducati Monster or an MV Augusta Brutali.

    2012 RTL,I am now 72,not really so old and still knees in the breeze. May yet be a 1330 in my future but this is probably my last ride. not interested in less comfort or motor so no Rykers for me. If I had the money I would look at a Triumph Bonneville Scrambler or the Ducati Scrambler ( in Yellow). I had a 1969 450 Ducati Scrambler in Yellow and Chrome.

    No matter how old your are (or aren't!): ANY Spyder (or Ryker...) will make you feel like a kid again!

    My friend is 44 and he’s getting one. My cousin is 35, wants to get one but also had a baby recently. But I’d say 80% chance he gets one by the summer. I hope BRP releases that data this time next year.

    44 here. Started with rockets and then moved to Harley’s sportsters, dynas, and then a street glide. I live in Milwaukee so Harley is king here. The Ryker is the way to go. Fast, fun, and three wheels!

    Nobody is that old----I crashed my turbo Hayabusa land speed racing on an airport strip at 170 mph--visor fogged up tight & I panic braked after going thru the timing traps--coincidentally I was 69 yrs old--nothing like an 80 yard tumble--but I walked into the ambulance--$800 4-6 mil leather suit disintegrates on contact with cement--Kevlar undervest barely looked scratched :-)

    I am 63 and the Rally model is what appeals to me. Very likely to purchase after the first of the year.

    Post Script to earlier post. I now have 1,300 miles on my Rally

    I am in my mid 50's going to take a test ride on a Ryker when my dealership gets them in the next month. I just want to take a "test ride"on one. So I can say I test drove one. Not buying one.

    But keeping my 2014 RTS-SE6.

    I am in my early 50's.... I was in the gym yesterday and a young guy asked me, "is that your bike out there?" I said yes, and without hesitation he said, "Dude, that is badass!". Made me laugh. Point is, this thing appeals to many different age groups on the merits of appearance alone... And those that drive them, will soon appreciate them for the performance they deliver.

    A day of first for me. This is my first post, have been lurking for awhile and I put down a deposit on a 900 that will be my first anything besides a car. Looking forward to trying something new next week. Oh.. the age thing... Just shy of 48.
