The Rise of the Silver Bikers

Posted on


Silver Bikers are a force to be reckoned with... and they are growing.

In 2014, the over 50s in the UK spent a total of £340 million on motorcycle purchases. This represents nearly a third of total motorcycle spending. In the seven years 2008-2014, growth in annual motorcycle spending among the over 50s averaged 41% compared to 4% for those under 50.*

So, are you a Silver Biker?

Are you over 60 and recently chucked out the bedroom slippers and bought a Ducati Monster? What spurred this change in your lifestyle? The feeling that life was escaping you and it was time to grab a bit of excitement?

David Graeme-Baker, a professional photographer for over 40 years, is currently researching a personal project to document this phenomenon. He is looking for bikers, over 60 and as old as can be, men and women, who have supposedly grown wiser with the passing of the years, but who choose, instead of looking after their grandchildren, to opt for the open road and the wind in their face.

What is it about two wheels and a big engine that is attracting our senior citizens back on the road?

If you think you have a tale to tell, tattoos to show, a bushy beard or a sexy bike get in touch. Contact David and tell him about yourself and your love affair with the Motorbike!

This project is still only in the research stage and its success will depend solely upon the mix of characters who are prepared to take part.
