    How do you know you have reached mid life anyway?

    Apparently the way to tell if you're in one is if you buy a motorbike.

    I couldn't afford a sports car or motorbike when I had mine, so I bought a touring bicycle instead. Couldn't find any 20yr olds who wanted to sh@g me, either. Their loss :thumbsup:

    I bought a 'racer' so perhaps my crisis is/was more of a crisis than your crisis?

    My wife is still a 20yr old in my eyes :wub:. Does this count?

    No, it doesn't... you are meant to lose all sense of right and wrong, have an affair with a much younger woman who is quite taken with your mature attitude to life, compared to the young twerps she's dated so far, then, when she finds a handsome stud who *is* actually in touch with his feminine side, and runs off to Acapulco with him, you resignedly accept your lot in life, and your wife takes you back willingly, smiling winsomely and saying 'you silly old fool, what were you thinking of?', but occasionally going off on one and throwing a tea-towel at you. You clearly didn't take it seriously! :thumbsup::smile:
  9. And forgot to buy the motorbike and/or tank!

    not really... it's just a term used to belittle stress and anxiety.
  11. I thought i'd try out the tank during my 3rd but couldn't figure out if they'd let me drive it home up the M6.....worryingly for some at the time, i was being completely serious! :whistle:

    I never quite understood this 'mid-life' crisis thing, does it come about because you realise that at 45 you have another 45 years to go or only 45 years to go? And with only 45 years to go do you want to squeeze in more crazy than the previous 45? I mean what's the rush?

    I had my mid life crisis at the tender age of 20 then. I'm happy to be able to confirm that 20 didn't turn out to be mid life :smile:.
