I should have found this forum much earlier! So much useful info, thank you. I am Michael and was clearly the oldest person at HARTS St Ives this week for my PreProvisional. Passed, am am pleased to say, but I guess it was cheating on a Honda Lead.... 102cc of surging power and a breeze in the u-turns ! This started 4 months ago when I walked into a bike shop to ask the question "should a man well over 60 get a bike license? " Luckily the guy in the shop was near my age and said "go for it!" Next step is to get some more road experience and then upgrade to a proper bike, preferably something classic to match my age. Anyone got an old BMW crying out for a new home?
