Good luck with your new adventures! Many of us can relate. I bought a convertible hoping it would ease the pain.After over 45 years and several hundred thousand of miles riding it is with a sad heart that I must say goodbye to riding. Back in the late 70's I had a major motorcycle accident that kept me in the hospital a few weeks with skin graphs and surgeries. Fast forward to now and those old injuries are coming back to haunt me along with arthritis in my right hand making very painful to work the throttle so I've decided to sell the K1600GTL and retire from riding.
I'll be moving on to a 2 seater convertible roadster possibly a Saturn Sky (a car I've always liked the looks of) The bike will be going to my local dealer this week and they will either buy it out right (if the price is right) or put it on consignment and sell it for me.
I've made so many great friends through the bikes I've had that I will always keep in touch with and will stop in here from time to time to see how everyone is doing. So I guess it's not really goodbye but till we met again. If you see a wild eyed, gray haired old man in a little roadster chasing you down on a curve road it might just be me. :grin:
I quit riding a while back after cranking out 30,000 miles year after year after year... and, I recently got back on the road when my health has improved enough to enjoy the ride... for now, the convertible stays in the garage and I am back riding gratefully!
Cheers to all you do!
