69 here, now 5’7.5”, 175 lbs, cancer survivor, retired white collar guy now working part time as a motorcycle (BMW, Ducati, and most Japanese brands) warranty administrator. Been riding since 19, owned too many bikes to list. Last change from a FJR1300AE to a F800GT. The FJR was great, but hard to manhandle in the garage. I love the F8GT - a few ergo mods make it extremely comfortable. Took it on a 2,000 mi trip this summer through WV, NC, TN, and back home to PA - it was a pleasure. Light, fast (enough), great handling, very low maintenance, steady on the straights, nimble in the twisters, and easy in the garage. I guess I gave up having a few bikes in the garage, though I’m still always looking. Kind of excited about the new Goldwing, Guzzi 1400 series, and K1600b - dimentia setting in? Ha ha. I try to stay in shape, take a riding class every year or two, and have become more selective when I rode - rarely at night, in the rain, or very cold weather. Long days in the saddle don’t seem to bother me much, as long as I take a breaks and drink plenty of water (which mandate taking breaks). I’m enjoying the autumn season - riding to work until it gets too cold. One big change I made a year and a half ago (I awoke after a surgery thinking “I want a convertible”. I bought a small convertible (‘11 BMW 128i manual) to keep me outside in the elements - when my wife wants to come along, and our dog wants to come. When the weather turns, or it gets dark, or I just want less stimuli - putting the top up, and turning on the ac or heat - is really nice. Also nice to run errands - however they always take longer in this vehicle - can’t seem to avoid the long way there! Great thread!! Thanks to everyone for contributing.
