Yeah 60 here and 5'9" with 31" inseam. Been ridin since the 1960's and my 1st bike was a Honda 160 scramber. I thought it was the fastest bike in the world and rode it like I stole it everyday. Lol! I think having that 160 scrambler is what always catches my eye when I see the new Triumph scrambler. Kinda of has a place in my heart. However, recently I sold my Harley electra glide and Klr 650. After a 3000 mile trip this summer on the Harley I just got tired of lifting that beast off the kickstand all day everyday. On the way home I told myself this is it, my heavy weight Harley days are over. With the Klr for me its just wouldn't work as a tourer and at 60 lets face it serious dirts not on my agenda anymore. So I replaced them with a Buell Uly XT and a wee-strom. I bought both at very affordable prices in great shape and low miles. The Buell gives me that grunt and torque I new I'd be missing from the Harleys for blasting around the southwest U.S. where I live, and the Wee-Strom has become my primary tourer because its just so damn reliable and will take you just about anywhere you want to go there and back.
