Re: Introducing myself from canada
Welcome to the forum. I'm in south Van, and I know there are a handful of forum members around the region (and a fair number that only read the forum, never joined, I meet them when I'm out on rides sometimes as well.)
I'd say it's less about your age and more about your ability to ride responsibly, myself, but the ultimate decision will be made by the local authorities (eventually), like tha VPD or RCMP officer that decides to spoil your day. In North Van they consider us to be 'limited speed motorcycles' which require a class 5 license but I haven't found that written down anywhere for other parts of the GVA. Best bet, ride like you know there's a cop around all the time. Let your crazy out only in limited amounts in safer areas. I go down to a bikeway near the river for it. Some areas you're on-street, but other sections are a bikes-only lane separated by a median.
Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
