Yep , retirees . Before Covid there used to be midweek daytime bike meets near me . Most bike meets I attend seem to have a very high proportion of bald heads , grey beards and pot bellys these days . As I've said elsewhere , these are the end days for bikes and biking as we know it . The passing of this generation will more or less coincide with the turning off of the petrol .

I think in the last week I've seen one younger person on a bike for every 10 or so old gits like me. That said I have seen a few young women on bikes and probably more than when I were a lad. So it might not be all bad.
Back in the blue. No bikes.....

Well I'll probably get shit for this but I'm a member of Sportster Sickness FB group ( I didn't choose the name
! ) and I have to say that my perception is that there is a healthy proportion of 30 - 40 somethings that ride Harley Sportsters . Many of these have come straight into motorcycles because they are attracted by the whole Harley Davidson image thing but I have no problems with that . You don't need to have paid your dues to be a biker , just the deposit . Who cares if they can't use a spanner , it keeps the dealerships busy .

But how many of those will be involved in a motorcycling just as a short term craze?

That’s what I thought. The majority were probably retirees. The rest probably on furlough or laid off.

All my food only eat vegetables. So, I'm an indirect vegetarian :cool:
