Though I am in my mid thirties, my brother and one of our friends made me buy a 2003 KX 250. I picked my bike up in July and have been able to ride it a lot this summer. Occasionally, when I wake up in the morning, I find myself wondering if I'm not too old for this sport. I can't wait for the lakes to freeze around here....at least I don't have to worry about making the doubles....tends to be rather flat out there!! I just ordered my studs last week.
