Another codger. I was (am) 68. My ST 1300 broke down, after a very dependable 110,000 miles. Honda didn't make anything suitable to replace it besides the Wing, and I didn't want a Wing.Nice bike, but not sporty enough riding position for me and still too heavy. My local Honda/Yamaha dealer really wanted to see me riding a Yamaha so we worked out a deal on a new A model FJR. It does have a lot of nice features the ST didn't have, like ABS, TC, cruise control, heated grips, 6 speed trans, multi way adjustable suspension. Pretty nice motorcycle. If it goes 100K miles like my ST did I will be very happy.
I also ride a CB1100 which I love. Have 40,000 miles on it.
as a side note the age poll here mirrors the age poll on the CB1100 forum. Either the bike appeal to the same guys or only older guys close to 50 and above are buying bikes, which is bad news for the MC industry.
2018 Yamaha FJR 1300A

It doesn't matter what I ride, where I ride, how fast I ride, or how far I ride... it only matters THAT I RIDE...EVERY DAY. "Ferret"
