I don’t see “land before time” as a poll answer!

Born in the Fabulous Fifties! Great time to grow up as a kid, no ridiculous censorship, awesome cartoons, the horsepower race, introduction of rock and roll, leaps and bounds in technology without having to look at it under a microscope, your parents got you a BB gun without having to beg for it, bicycles didn't mountain climb or have tires the size of an o-ring, different looking cars every year, harleys and brit bikes were the choice of most.....

Born in 1949 and I was mountain biking before it was a thing. My bike was a mongrel with a 26" boy's frame" and 24" diameter wheels with fat tires. The crank was too long for the frame and I couldn't pedal in turns without hitting the pedals on the road but I could climb the hills like a billy goat.
When a bunch of us would go off on an adventure on bicycles or feet, we would brown bag a sandwich and a canteen be gone for 8 to 12 hours in the summertime. Neighborhood watch didn't have a name because all parents had the authority to paddle all kids and then tell the actual parents so the kid could get another spanking when he/she returned home.
We all had BB guns and we all still have our eyeballs.
The good old days.
Then in the 60's when we got our second-hand Japanese bikes, European mopeds (the ones with bicycle pedals) or Italian scooters, we all treated them like mountain bikes with motors.
No helmets, just Guardian Angels. We all survived to talk about it.
I'm a kid trapped in a 71 year old body.
