Age is a problem with all groups involved in Vintage Motorcycles. I am the Minnesota chapter Airmarshal of the Airhead Beemers Club. Our club has many discussion on how to attract younger members. We have even been promoting cafe' racer type bikes. We need someone to purchase our bikes from our widows when we kick the bucket.

We in ABATE of Washington are grappling with this, trying to grow our membership as well. The sport bikes don't seem to care about what we see coming... being legislated off the highways.
