  6. I am a 72 years young rider. I dropped my 2002 Goldwing in June and found I was no longer strong enough to pick it up. So, sold it in July and bought a 650 Burgie. It has opened up a new world fo me.

  8. Very Good Bill and the rest of you wrimklies, but you haven’t reached me yet.I will be 88 in Januaqry 2010, with God’s permission.I ride my Burgman 200 daily.having sold my 600 Yamaha Dragstar recently.

  9. Just picked up my first bike ever: I’m 68 and bought a 09′ 650 exec. Still getting used to riding. Took the MSF course and that helped a lot.

    The weight of the 650 is a bit daunting for a new rider, but I’m (slowly) learning to handle it.
    Oh yes! That center stand takes a bit of finesse. Which I haven’t yet got.

  10. Geee!!!! I’m a child at 60. Love my bike!!! When my son says I’m too old to start riding, I’ll show him y’alls post.
