Welcome from San Antonio. I expect that sooner or later my Versys 650 will be replaced by the 300.
Part and parcel of the inevitable "growing older" syndrome are slowly diminishing response to rapid balance changes, diminished upper body strength, and an increased probability of having to live with artificial joints. Those things can translate to a greater possibility of toppling over, less ability to pick said toppled-over machine, and the extremely painful possibility of overextending an expensive replacement joint. None of these things are good.
Despite my best efforts (well perhaps not my very best but still pretty good) I can't turn back time or entirely ignore the age-related results of a foolish risk-filled youth, but my plan is to continue to enjoy motorcycling as long as possible by riding a machine I can manage. Strikes me as an OK plan.
