Default SSEis and age

I was just wondering how many of the older generation drive SSEIs? And do any of you mind saying how old you are? I am 67 and when ever I get in mine I feel like a teenager again.I have been driving it for two years now and I never get tired of it. All I have done to it is a 3.4 pulley but it does get up and go any time I want it to.

I'm 18 but I have an SE.

Just last week, I got passed by a red GXP. When I looked over, there was a lady that seemed to be around 70. She had her sunglasses on and that cool look on her face. I was like "Are you friggin kidding me???'

I guess Bonnevilles do make feel VERY young.

The supercharger is an addiction. If i'm depressed I go out and drive for no reason. I also drive like a maniac and have a superiority complex on the road.

ha ha, same here, minus the 50lbs of torque but the n/a motors still pickup decent. I accidently left a strip about 15 feet long on the street a few days ago.

Oddly enough I was out in rockford,il visiting my grandma who had a 94 LSS, and I liked the build quality, and how it had NEVER been to the shop in 100,000 miles for anything other than oil changes.

I'm 40 and have had mine for 9 months. I still get goose bumps when I drive.

Makes me feel like a kid again!!!!!
