At almost 75 and living with an artificial left hip and slow but inevitable loss of upper body strength I've made a few "accommodations" that I hope will extend my riding days. My charming wife is a few years younger and still quite healthy but thus far I can still keep up with her.
The Versys is now for errands and short trips wandering around in the local Texas countryside. For long trips - touring adventures - we added a pair of new-to-us Can Am Spyder RTs and quickly decided they're hard to beat for touring in comfort.
Two years ago in March we rode them 2200 miles to Tucson-Tombstone-Bisbee and return, and this April we rode them 1650 miles through the west Texas Big Bend country for a week or so. Tons of storage, semi-automatic transmissions, stability control, traction control, electronic cruise control, electrically adjustable windscreen and an excellent sound system are all greatly appreciated. Oh, and it's REALLY hard to fall over riding one. They stay at our winter home in Texas, and keep the Versys company.
We also keep two small bikes at our summer home in Maine - a BMW G310R and a Suzuki TU250X - that are perfect for the two lane woodland roads we ride. They're light and nimble and a hoot to ride. Whoever said it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bile slow was absolutely correct in our opinion.
We don't play golf and we don't have any interest in RVs so we find that we have a few spare $$$ now and then to add another bike. Life is good, and we can still ride for many more years - if we're careful.
