    I was 75 when I started this thread Alpal...
    Growing old isn't for sissys, to quote an old saw!

    I sold my BMW that I had a couple of months ago and still thinking about my next bike.
    Maybe a Royal Enfield twin?

    "What is Your Age..."

    As a telling sign, I have got to the stage that I had to re-check the last few pages of this thread to see if I had posted in it already. Turns out I have, three times!!

    I am now 6 months away from being "promoted" into the top age category - at least that is how I see it. Seriously though, other than a couple of relatively minor physical limitations:
    • I feel (relatively) great
    • I have a wonderful (i.e. patient and tolerant) wife and an awesome family (12 grandkids)
    • I am very happy in retirement - not the least bit bored
    • I own, and have time to ride, an amazing bike
    • I have some terrific mates to enjoy life with
    Life is pretty damn good.

    I am sure many other 65+ riders would agree . . .

    Looks like I’m one of the youngsters on the site, at 60. Feels like I’m ~35 or so, thanks mainly to a terrific wife of 38 years! Also helps to ride a great motorcycle - that’s some stay-young elixir for sure!

    Life is pretty damn good except for my wife’s medical issues.

    I am sure many other 65+8 riders would agree. :rolleyes:

    Thank you for your service! I have a lot of respect for our vets.
    I’m 53. Started riding when I was 10yrs old on a Suzuki DS 80.
