Seems I'm one of the younger folks here. Good to see I make good decisions earlier in life than most of you.

At 71 right about middle in the old guys I ride with the most bunch.The oldest at 76 is so tough.Did a 1,500 mile with paper work early this year on his Ten.. Been to Alaska more than any of us and a number of us have been more than once. Last real long too me day was 015 when two of us cut out a day early from our Colorado eight day ride and camp trip.Did a 900+ day on the Wee with all camp gear and was feeling good next day. Only done one over 1,000 day when 55 on my Nomad.Was 1,030 coming back from Sturgis. Guess its kind of sad to enjoy it but we get a lot of fun out of the looks from hard core looking way younger than us we meet and they find we still ride way more than they do! Even still using a motorcycle for about everything have dropped to around 20,000 a year now.Still ride every day just not as far.The now about every day nap is cutting in to my ride time I think!

Good for you. I quit riding at 70. It just wasn't that much fun any more.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Apparently I am on the younger side as well, being born in the 80s. I just recognized early on that the Strom is the unsung hero of the motorcycle world

GW you just lost the need? Stay around as you seem a wealth of MC smarts.I still don't feel right if I don't jump on one of mine and do at least a ten mile loop of the back roads.Often only time out that day. My old 37 truck seems even more fun this time back on the road and the wife likes it so it may cut into riding time? Had it and my 1977 GS750 Suzuki four since 1977. If not for my wife would have so many 30s,50, trucks and cars I sold but really did not want to would look like a dealership. I have been sick in that way a long time.Love old things with wheels.

We just made 'em a lot sooner than you - like before you were born sooner.
