So i just bought my first bike and im 33. Its not junk but its and old bike. Im finding that the more i search on bikes the more i find that some young 18 or 20yo kid has just bought a new 2006 or better crotch rocket like they just went out back and dug up a big pile o money. Im just getting real jaded on the whole thing. I guess its not just bikes but just the fact these kids have so much money to burn and i cant figure out where it comes from! You cant have THAT much experience at that age to have some badass job. Even if they did, how do they afford insurance for that wicked rocket???? Or do some just ride illegally? Maybe some of them are actually going hungry or cutting back somehow in order to ride, which i commend. But man, im just like - OK i have bills, rent/mort., GAS PRICES and just the general cost of living like most of us and can barely afford any gear and there goes another kid blasting by on some new ZX whatever with a wicked Aria or Shoei helmet and im like 'christ what gas station do i have to rob to get this stuff?' Sorry this is more of a rant, i really think im starting to get old finally.
