I'll be 70 in a few months and this seems more significant somehow to my riding.
Currently riding just about daily including a few 2-3 week long trips a year.
Have 2010 Wee well equipped for distance in Canada and that's my go to bike.
Setting off for three weeks to the East Coast in Canada...
Have a sweet CBF1000 that was bought entirely to scratch an itch for a light 1000cc Honda inline 4.
Will never get to ride it enough but what there was sure was fun....it's on the sale block tho I might get one more year from it.
Such a sweet roll on ....can keep with the kid on his FX8.
and then the sturdy 2004 KLR I''m currently riding in OZ has consistently kept me out of trouble tho not on occasion without an assist from my much more experienced riding friends. ( lesson One - good tires ).
I've been riding since I was 17 and was happy to do a cross country ride with the kid on my 50th riding anniversary.
Old bones held up okay for 3 weeks which was the longest ride I've taken.
The two of us had a fine time not likely to be repeated in depth - but we got both coasts in back to to back years and the two different 2010 Stroms never let me down at all.
So ....I'd like to hear thoughts and adventures from those near or past 70. Plans, worries, looking for inspiration.
As a hardcore offroad buddy with a series of come offs says....he drops 10 years just getting on the bike but he's certainly feeling the aches these days.
Pics appreciated of your outstanding rides, what you own aside from Strom....I know GreyWolf and few others have quit.....for me....not yet.
What do you change to offset aging strength and recovery ....ie armor etc.
I know I certainly grab handrails going downstairs the last while......not sure what the motorcycle equivalent is.
