Re: average age in mopeds

67 got my first moped from my brother who got it for a case of beer about 5 years ago. I ride it to aldis mostly to get groceries and have another one in Minnesota for going to wally world. I love riding it just for fun and attention I suppose as they are uncommon and suicidal in the big city, you have to plan your routes or get run over. I love just putting around and the fact I don't have a battery to mess with.

Re: average age in mopeds

I'm new to mopeds ('71 Moby 40VL), but age is a fairly common topic in my usual social group of older motorcycle restorers and riders (I'm 67)…..what am I saying, a moped is definitely a motorcycle.

We generally are worried that the "younger generations" are not adopting an interest in old bikes, but, in looking through this topic here, it is promising that some of the "old mopeders" are in their thirties and forties......good to see you youngsters still being attracted to two-wheeled motorised transportation.

Gitcher motah runnin'......head out down the drahveway…..

I’m 19. My friend and I got into it together but we’re quite lonesome in it, and I’m away at college. I currently have no moped friends. I’ve seen one guy at my college riding a top tank Maxi and I’ve tried to find him but to no avail. I’m always on the lookout for him!

Re: average age in mopeds

50 here, got my first moped at age 15 b/c I could drive it with just a learner's permit, no insurance or inspection required, just an annual $5 registration. I even installed a CB radio on it.

In my experience being late to class to pop a u-turn and catch up to a dude on a moped/leaving notes on parked peds around campus are great ways to grow a little moped community within your school and are totally worth it
