Brilliant. Good luck to you. Have fun.
73.5 and counting. On Hondas for over 50 years, street and dirt.
Ride on Marc t, thats awesome. Funny, is that what happens when we get older..start adding 1/2 years like when we were young . Right behind ya a bit at 58 5/8
Hell, I'm 64 and my 07 VFR is my "slow ride". I also ride a 2013 Aprillia Tuono Tell your wife to chill the f**k out.
Hope your couch is comfy
Oh Hell, she divorced my ass close to 30 yrs ago. Back in 03 when I told my then girlfriend that I thought I would buy a bike and start riding again she was horrified and told me; "it's me or the bike, you can't have both" Of course I went right out and bought the first of many great motorcycles and said good bye to her. Since then I've met a number of women who like to ride. The point is, you're never too old for a motorcycle as long as you can climb on, work the controls and see down the road.

Funny, sounds like a woman as well
I know what to push and pull on a bike to make it respond but women??
When I was young I was told that women are a mystery, how right he was.
With women you can push the same button and get different results.
But give me a choice of cuddling up to a nice warm women in bed or a bike in a cold garage, no choice.
So how old when u started ridin ?
( I'm keeping an '89 VTR250 ready to ride if my legs ever get weaker, next birthday 71.)
71...very cool...hope I'm riding at that age . Been riding since 6 or 7... first bike was a Rupp mini bike
Ya man Rupp Roadster. Suspension and torque converter!
You got it, that was before the mini trail 50 even came out.
As an "old soul" 38 y/o, I caught some of my very first experiences on a quite well-worn Rupp minibike; one that I bartered for!
As soon as I got it as a youngster, I even did my own Tecumseh engine swap on it too. LOL!
I don't think age really matters in subjects such as this. Or in any subject, really. In my own case, with the VFR800A I just took delivery of, I'm playing up more to the "touring" characteristics than the "sport." That's simply my choice. The once familiar "you're too young," "you're too old," "you're too <this>," or "you're too <that>" are only the outdated cries of ignorant social 'norms' that, I believe, were laid to rest decades ago.
Yes, responsibilities in life exist, and must be honored, but, if you're successfully doing so, you've earned some leeway to explore anything and everything that, reasonable, makes you happy.
Dam straight. ..you're going to love this bike...does everything great . Great commuting bike and great in the canyons as well.
I am just shy of 66 and ride my 1996 VFR every week in the lovely mountains of NE Georgia. Would ride it more often but have a collection of bikes and cannot show favorites
For that matter, where do you go to pick up younger women....or, come to think of it, any women?
81 years old - and still ride my stable of 4 bikes.
"You don't quit riding because you get old, you will get old if you quit riding"
Carry on ~
Won't forget that one.
Just turned 59 (ouch) and ride 300 miles a week and still love the crap out of my VFR.
Just picked up a '92 VFR400(NC30) Taking it and the CBR400 to Roebling for a track day the end of April. No logging trucks, road debris or runoffs of trees and cliffs
Pictures MtnBoy, have a ball
