  1. Hi All
    After about 12 years since my last bike I am getting the urge again.
    I am 77 yrs young and have ducks disease [ a bit short] so this will influence my decision as to
    what bike I get.
    haven`t decided what brand or even what type yet.
    Don`t know that I want a cruiser though.
    So I guess will be looking at naked or sports tourers.
    My last bike was a chook chaser which was a lot of fun but don`t want to go there again.

    Anyway am happy to join this group and reading the posts has already proven useful .

  2. Hell I feel positively youthful, thanks and welcome, hope you get a few rides in before you fall off the perch :)
  3. G'day tchh and welcome

    I've got duck's disease too. Certainly cuts down the choices.
  4. I just want to say how awesome it is that at your age you are wanting to still ride. I guess the addiction never dies. Well done and hats off to you
  5. And I thought I was a silly old bugger! :)

    You must be copping flak from all sides, but I suspect you dismiss it with a smile. Where are you living tchh?
  6. Living at Rosebud not far from Arthurs Seat.
    So if I`m going to fall off the perch its not a bad place to do it.
  7. You've gotta fall off the perch somewhere....Rosebud sounds good. and a hell of a lot less painful than falling off a bike. (I haven't fallen off a perch, but I have fallen off a bike, so I am at least 50% qualified to say.....)
