    You dont have to leave - just add another forum group ;-) All the best. From what I can see there are many of us on here who are making the best of riding rockets while they can ! I love that you are determined to stay on a motorcycle - even if it means adding a wheel
    I met a gentleman in his 80s recently who was riding a Can Am Spyder and he was a happy man / had extended his love of riding for many years
    All the best

    Good luck finding another ride. Trikes are a good choice, don't miss looking at the honda. If you can still go 2 wheels, the honda silver wing is worth a shot. I imagine that mounting is as much an issue as riding, throwing the leg over. the wing is shaped like a ladies bike.

    For those of you having difficulty keeping the bike up, look at this site: Chopper Design - LegUp LandinGear. If I should ever get to the point I have difficulty keeping the bike up, I will definitely explore this option. It lets the bike lean in the curves, yet keeps it upright when moving slow or stopped.

    Hate to hear it. My dad had to sell his beloved moto guzzis when his neck got too bad to ride. I think he would've gotten rid of me first if he had a choice lol.
