    BFD....christallmighty...if you don't want to ride don't ride.....it is no more complicated than that....

    I am a engineer not a mental health expert of any kind...but you sound like you bored with your life...….well go help someone who needs help.....go volunteer at a food bank....a animal shelter...… work with the homeless.... represent kids in court....join the resistance …..

    I am 80 and I continue to ride and kayak and can't wait until tomorrow....

    I am going to retire in December and find myself day dreaming about where and when I am going to ride. I have a 2017 T dub and need to fit some racks and kit it out and it is all exiting now as what to buy and how to modify the bike. I often caution myself not to imagine all this great traveling dreams and then one day be disappointed by it all. Never the less I cannot wait and I am so looking forward to it. I plan to do some long trips from South Africa to neighboring countries like Namibia , Botswana and Mozambique. It would be great to meet another old fart recycled teenager for a riding buddy that is willing to do some rides with me. (hopefully with a T dub) I have ridden all sorts of bikes all my life and is exited about my latest craze. Hopefully it will be a good couple of years before i feel the same way my friend. All the best

    You don't need a reason not to be into riding.Just as you don't need s reason to like it.Park the bikes. Get the kayak. When 2 feel like riding again, if you do,you have a bike to swing a leg over.
