62 here. Just traded in a Daytona 675R not because of age or flexibility but because I needed a more practical Iron Butt bike. 3 years ago I was bitten by the LD bug. Since then I've done a few SS1k rides, a BBG (1500 miles/24 hours) and a 50CC Gold (under 50 hours NYC to SF) - all on my BMW K100RS. The new-to-me '09 R1200RT is a bit more practical, since I might do a 48/10 next summer. Oh, our son's Ducati SS is in our garage while he lives & works overseas. I am keeping it "exercised"
