    I just turned 40 and was wondering weather anyone else was in the same club.
    They say 40 is new 30 but it certainly doesn't feel like it for me, so I call bullshit, lol.

    Also, I can't believe I've already spent a little over a quarter of my life on these forum boards (GP32X/Pandora/Pyra)...so many memories.

    I'm staring down the short end of 40. 20 more months.

    If you count date of conception as the start of life, I suppose I'm already 40...

    I'd thought you were at least 8 years younger than me when we met briefly at PAX East a few years ago.

    ^ Some countries do/see it that way.
    In S. Korea, when you're born, you're already 1 year old.

    Without actually trying to figure it out... I'm guessing I'm about a year younger than WizardStan. :)

    still got 7 years to go until that threshold is crossed... I am in the "that dude still thinks he's cool" phase, where my adolescent cousins have started to humour me and my shenanigans instead of genuinely admiring and looking up to me :(

    Isn't that more to do with their age than yours; I'd have thought that at least.

    I am also a member of this club that the thread is titled for.

    Time to buy a cool motorcycle? I did. I'm 31 but this makes me feel 21 again:

    It's electric.

    Goes a long distance.

    And keeps me occupied until my Pyra arrives. I've already voided my warranty :oops:

    I take it your pushbike is also electric. Nice.

    And that's a hell of a lot of cooling for what? Batteries? I guess the motor is buried quite a lot deeper that that, but maybe it's got ducting underneath to bring up any heat from that.

    I'm 40, but if I continue to start projects like the Pyra, I won't reach the magical 42 :D

    Usually it's the controller that needs the most cooling

    Yep, electric bicycle belongs to my dad. Pedal-assist only, goes up to 28mph.

    That huge chunk of aluminum up top on the motorcycle is the "charge tank", an additional charger for use with public chargers. There is built-in charger at the bottom of the bike for residential 110v/220v

    The controller is under the tail, also a huge chunk of aluminum... and the motor (located right at the swingarm pivot) has lots of fins.
