Now at 52.3 with 21 male and 1 female.

This is interesting, I wonder if BMW targeted this age group?

What I heard from BMW their target for the G310 R/GS was the Young and new riders.
Beside that, the asian markets ......................

Going through the demographics ................ most of the 'new' riders are over 50 (sorry youngsters ;-)) and quite experienced riders.
Like me, most of us have been riding for quite some time and quite some different makes and cc's.
I also agree that this bike is the perfect beginners bike.
People who haven't much experience can learn a lot on this G310.

I decided to downsize because riding a motorcycle was not 'nummero uno' in my life anymore and I did not feel very comfortable / safe anymore on a big and heavy motorcycle.
I must admit that riding this G310 gives me the same 'happy' feeling as when I started riding motorcycles and doing big trips (almost) all over the world.

Exactly my reason too.

I have to wonder if BMW marketing has these current buyers age on their radar?
Not that I have seen any advertisements for the 310, but they may need to show
some grey hair, semi balding riders in their literature.
