How old are you?

Post by CoupeSilver »

Seeing as there is an age poll for the Mlites, thought it would be interesting to see what the general spread of age is on this forum.

👍.. Makes sense. I felt a bit bad doing it just for 35/40 owners. I like to include everyone as much as possible.

Interesting, so far quite a bit older than I was expecting.

I'm going to keep bumping this tread for a while (so far warning mods :) ) to try and catch as many people as possible. First couple of days is likely to only catch the very regular contributors.

Aye it makes sense to keep bumping it. I put 14days on the owner specific poll but would leave this running.
It's good to see the age range of forum user's knowing that despite age, we all share something in common👍

TBH the smaller age categories in the other poll make more sense.

I know, I'm just meaning the age categories in that poll, with five year age ranges, is perhaps a better approach.

I don't think age makes much difference to stuff.

I remember when I was a kid my Mum telling me she always felt like an 18 year old in her head in spite of her age, and I used to wonder what she was talking about. :lol:

Now I'm 47 I know exactly what she means. Although physically I'm getting knackered now, my mind in my head still feels like a teenager, and I don't think I will ever grow up. In fact I don't want to. :D

I'm still into the same stuff I was as a kid, still have the same passions and hobbies but I can actually afford to do them now. ;)

But having spent the last 9 days decorating the daughters bedroom from top to bottom I can tell you now, the body isn't as willing as it once was. ;)

I'm only interested in a broad understanding of the spread of age. I chose not to put it down to 5 years deliberately.

Exactly, That's part of the reason I chose relatively broad age ranges. I'm not trying to establish any kind of "mental maturity", it's predominantly just pure curiosity.

That said, I've put up a poll to get a feeling for what models people drive overall. I'm now wondering if that'll show mostly newer models (which would make sense if people are generally older and have greater earning capacity - broadly speaking)

OK fair enough. I'm 60 next year so being in a late 50's category feels more appropriate than the broader 50-59, 55 feels a long time ago now, yet alone 50!
