I would like to know how you guys deal with getting old and can no longer pick up your bikes. Do you quit riding, get a smaller bike, ride with others? I discovered I could not longer pick up my KTM 990 when I crashed on some ice and had to find some guys in a 4 wheel drive to help me. I since built a collapsible cherry picker I pack with me along with block and tackle. I crash every few months and ride by myself. I have thought about getting a smaller bike but they cannot do what the 990 can. I would prefer that riders at least 50 years old reply. Youngsters will not understand what I am asking.
