Old Guy, lost track of forum for years

Hello..I joined Starbike forums in 2014....had a buncha bikes then....Got too old (83) and hung up the helmet and sold off my last two bikes awhile back. Was getting light headed and felt unsafe and didn't want to hurt anybody or myself. Anyway,
I miss biking a lot, but thank God for the years and years of riding enjoyment. Biking was one of my chief enjoyments in life for ten years when I got back into it about 2008.

I hang out on this forum as well as other bike forums, and also check for bikes for sale on Craigslist just for fun. I also visit a site for classic cars for sale and it is called BringATrailer. Google that name and it will appear.

It took me forever to get a new password issued but I finally accomplished it.


My fave bikes include the V4 Royal Star (never owned one but rode them sometimes), BMW K75, VStar 650, HOnda Magna V4, and Kawasaki Vulcan 500 six speed.

I hope it is ok to just hang out and lurk and comment so as to feel like I am still in the game.

Grace + Peace,

Bob

Hi Bob one thing we never lose our interest in motorcycling! I, too, am an older female but not willing to give up yet. Had some heart issues that had to be addressed and now have a pacemaker. Dr said I was good to go. I am considering a conversion kit for my v-star 950 tourer. Will be talking to three professionals soon and listening to what they will say. I have missed two summers of riding and would like to ride again.

Glad you decided to hang out here with all of us. Please share your knowledge and help us out if you can. Welcome back!!

Thank you~YammyV
