I'm 58. Been biking since I was 17 with a 10 year gap after a nasty crash back in the nineties. Since then I've had a Divvy 600, a Fazer 600 and multiple super scooters. My last one was a very nice fulled loaded Silverwing 600 which I sold 3 weeks ago. In August I bought a 2004 lowered, ex HRH escort Avantgarde Deauville which looks like a cop bike and motorists take a second glance instead of pulling out in front of me. The downside is they slow down when they see you in the rear view mirror and ruin the buzz on windy roads. I see there are not many recent new members but I hope this is an active forum for newbies like me and look forward to taking part.
