Sounds similar to my experience. I purchased a new Yamaha IT175 in 1978, and rode it in the woods and on trails for most of my adult life. Sold it about 20 years ago. 5 Years ago I took the MSF course and got my license, and got my VS 650

also setup to ride solo. Put 28,000 miles on it so far, and loving every mile. 60 years old, in upstate NY.
I'm thinking of getting a bigger bike for longer rides, a 1300 like yours, maybe a Roadstar 1600, or I might get a FJR1300 sport touring bike, mostly for the fairing on the interstate.
