I got my license when I was 56, 6 years ago, and have been loving every minute on two wheels ever since.
A lot has changed over the years. If you presently do no have your MC license I recommend you sign up for the MSF beginners course - its 3 days, you get to learn on their nice honda 250s, and on the last day you get your MC license stamp - and about 10% off your MC insurance for the rest of your life.
If you have your license then taking the beginners course is still worth the couple hundred dollars - most people develop bad riding habits on their own, learning from experienced riding instructions is the best way to improve your riding and not-falling-over skills. (the first thing they teach you is how to get on a MC and get back off without dropping it... because it happens to riders more than we want to admit).
Things have changed, now more than ever you need to ride as if you are invisible, and have a plan and the skills to avoid accidents.
If you stay off 4 lane roads, stay off the interstates, and ride on secondary roads thru the country, its much safer and more enjoyable.
Welcome back to the 2 wheel community.
