(I have my pokemon from sapphire all the way up to SS/HG on dare
You should start playing as soon as possible. My brothers bought HeartGold and SoulSilver the same week it was released and I only played it a handful of times. Now that I started playing it recently, I really felt like I missed out. Thankfully though, only Black and White have been released after HG and SS. I still have time to fully enjoy the games before the release of Black and White 2.
As for schooling me, you're definitely right. I have been out of the game for so long that some things feel new to me. If there was a way to transfer my Pokemon from Gold, then I'd most likely be the one schooling you.

I'm not currently playing HeartGold it as I've left my DS back home, and I'm living away from home. I did play it last summer and a little over Christmas though. I've beaten all the gym leaders in Johto and Kanto, but I haven't beaten Red. I'm in the long process of training my Pokémon so I can take him on. Like other Pokémon games, I've spent too much time training my starter Pokémon (in this case it's Typhlosion, the same as when I played Silver on the GBC) and not enough time training others and building a strong, well-rounded team.
I've really enjoyed playing the same, but it's not surprising as I loved playing Silver.
I'm taking my time with HeartGold. I remember making the same mistake on my first play-through of Gold. I think I faced Red at least ten times before I beat him. I remember beating the Elite Four and Red over and over again to reach level 100. The process of getting just one Pokemon to level 100 was relentlessly tedious. Still, it was worth it in the end when I battled my friends at school.
