It looks like the "under fourties" are not wasting their time on the forum then and are riding instead

Well I'm 52 now but I'm pleased to see there's a couple of riders in their 70's which gives me a few years on it yet, well done guys!

My Dad, the FJR pilot is 68. So far he has not slowed down enough for me to notice. We are both encouraged that on this forum and the FJRforum there are men older than 70 who are still actively enjoying their Sport Tourers.

At advanced ages, I think if you quit doing something the inability to do it soon follows. A classic use it or loose it proposition.

Not trying to get Off Topic...

When Dad was close to retirement he told me to find his "Retirement Motorcycle". He had ridden an '84 GoldWing from '84 to '95 (I totaled it for him) and wanted to get back into motorcycling.

We never considered anything other than a Sport Tourer. A compromise in every way, also the best of all worlds. Lighter than the new 'Wing and the Electra Glide, faster and more responsive than both. Far more comfortable than a Sport Bike, faster and more nimble than a cruiser. We also anticipated that the powerful brakes, nimble handling, and powerful engine would compensate for aging reflexes.

This could have been any of the available Sport Tourers. The (2) BMWs, the Concourse 14, the FJR, or the ST1300. I find the demographics on the FJR forum very close to what is here.
