Default How old are you?

Anecdotal evidence I've gleaned from this forum suggests that the average age here is higher than I would have expected of any internet forum, and it's gotten the sociologist in my curious.

What is the average age of an internet savvy sportster rider?

I don't think 55+ is the end of life, btw, but when I created the poll I selected "5 options," and after I got creating them I didn't feel like editing it and adding more choices for "55-65" and "65-75".
