    Average age of a Tuono owner?

    Since purchasing one of these fine (but temperamental) machines & and frankly loving every goddamn minute of the experience, I was just wondering about the general demographic of ownership?
    Looking at some of the T forums it seemís that itís the grumpy old bastards choice of steed?
    Why is this

    With age comes wisdom & being grumpy is what us old bastards live for so stop asking any more goddamn stupid questions,

    Aye. Well I'm 42 & get the feeling that most on here are older. Makes a change to be the youngster these days

    46, feeling about 18 most of the time (but not first thing in the morning when I struggle to get my socks on as my back needs a while to loosen up).

    I got into bikes as they were noisy, smelly, dirty, and (most importantly) pissed people off.

    I should probably have grown out of that mindset. I havn't.

    The T does it for me, and (hopefully) pisses many people off with the Mivv soundtrack

    I'm one of the more mature owners on here then, I passed mid fifties a while back.

    I seem to have mislaid my Akky baffles somewhere, oh well..............

    39 for me. Glad I discovered the tuono at 37. Used to love fully faired bikes when I was a kid but in reality they're there to serve a purpose and that's a race track really
