I always ask why is your bike so clean. They see that my bike is dirty and I tell them I ride every day and am not a fair weather rider. Real bikers usually understand and we laugh.You are correct on the age group and you fit within it. Most maxi riders put more mileage on their scoots in one yr then most of the posers do the entire time they own their bike. I shut down a couple posers when they commented about me becoming a real rider, when I asked them about their yearly mileage compared to mine. I have rode all kinds of bikes in my younger years and after 40+ yrs of riding, decided to ride something a little more comfortable and still be able to get a leg over.
