A new lad started work at my place on monday, and today i asked him for his details, bank/nz num/ address and D.O.B. When i looked :shock: :shock: i saw that he was born the same day i left school and that he had just turned 18.
It's one thing having a 17 year old bike, let alone talking about things BITD, but when you have someone working for you that was born when you left school it really hits you :evil:

Now that really does make me feel old :oops:

I always feel old when my girlfriend says (and she's about 12 years younger than me): "Hey you've got a grey hair!! Lemme see lemme see!" :oops: :wink:

i started biking in 1993/94 when my rents bought me a kona lavadome which when i turned 11 in 1994 . . i obviously trashed it down the jumps,

im now 24 and still riding kona's. :D

I think you know you're old when your girlfriend is 12 years younger than you, she doesn't need to say anything. :)

Ah bl**dy h*ll you're just jealous :twisted: 8) :lol:

BTW: I am "only" 31 y.o. Started back in 1990/1991 with a Raleigh Discovery... actually I really started off a few years before on a Batavus bike, not a MTB but a normal everyday "going-to-school" bike with a Sturmey/Archer 3-speed hub, drum brakes and fenders etc etc. LOL and when I crashed it in half my parents finally got the message :-D

You know you're old when you have to scroll down on the dropdown tabs on insurance websites to find the year you were born :?
