I am NOT a 100% Biker, I'm a old timer, if I sit on the V for Hr's on end my knees won't hold me when I try to walk. Being in South Florida. If the rain doesn't wash you away, the 80/90 year old drivers will run you off the road, H..... I have been run off the road while driving my F-250, they turn on their signals and expect you to get out of their way. I can do 6/8/10/12 Hr's in a truck with AC Radio and cruse control, but on a Cycle I need to stop every so often to stretch and unwind. At my age, getting their is not the point of the trip, I'd rather tow a RV and have a place to sleep, carry a spare "what ever" and once at the new location, enjoy the area.
Renting 'might' be an option, but most locations only rent HD's, I'd just as soon have my own bike as rent another? Plus If I was all that into renting, I'd sell the V and just rent, but I enjoy the V and the option to do what I want when I want.
ALSO: Being run off the road in a truck is a lot easier to take, than on a cycle, and it doesn't happen as often.
