72 now and did not start riding again until I was 70 after a break of 55 years since I had an Allstate scooter. I ride mostly to camp and explore, not hardcore technical stuff. I trailer the TW to my base camp destination as I don't care for long highway rides.
I have been riding since I was 13 years old, beginning on a a Cushman scooter all the way up to a Honda Goldwing. Well in excess of 250000 miles. I can no longer ride my Goldwing due to the damage to my right wrist. I do really enjoy riding my TW, as I can handle it easily, so my Goldwing is for sale.
I will be 77 years old in October and do not plan on quiting anytime soon, although I am careful about the kind of country I ride in.
I have ridden with some guys who have been closer to 80 than 70. By the "Yippie" yell as we were riding on a trail told me he was enjoying himself. I only hope to still be riding when I reach that age.
I'm 53. Race vintage mx on a 125. I think the TW is a great bike for a aging rider that doesn't want to give up on his passion. It's low, slow, fun and go anywhere. Getting through life is the ability to adapt. It would be dangerous to ride a bike if you have a tough time getting your leg over the fender. Or if the power was too abrupt for your mental timing. The important part is not to curl into a ball but do what it takes to meet your cjallanges
To me the TW can extend someone's Sundays in the seat for another 2 decades
Just got my tank after waiting for over a month and there are a couple of issues. What looks like a repair on the front bottom edge as well as the front bolt is crooked! I know They where selling some blemished tanks a while back but I paid full price for a new tank! What do you guys think?
Below is a picture of a mini CO2 system/pack that I was given for Christmas. I have no idea on what to expect in the use of these little guys. Hopefully, I'll never have to tear a tire down and repair a flat out in the outback some place. But, if I did, and the tube was completely...
Hi, I've been reading up about available, or lack of, tire choices and had settled on the shinko 241 to change out the deathwing, which has already got me both on n off road 🤬 problem is I live in Spain. Nobody stocks them here but I did find another 2 European stockists but they both can only...
I am looking at the manracks and cycleracks rear racks for my newly bought 2015 tw. I want to be sure that neither of them will interfere with having a passenger on back. I just want to ride my two kids around in the woods but I just don’t want the bars to get into there butt or interfere with...
While moving both of my parts motors I noticed that both are broken in the area of the kick start shaft. I can think of 2 obvious causes. First a crash. Second an overly aggressive Hulk kicking away. Is there a problem? And maybe this is why Yamaha discontinued the kick starter?
