Peregrine,

Welcome to the sandbox! be among friends here.

I was about that old, when I bought my FJR. Not a problem! I am much younger, now.

P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.

Welcome. I test rode an XR couple of years ago & was very impressed. First ride on a bike with cruise & quick shifter. No dealers anywhere close to home in western NY.
