Just a child but a wise buy, had mine since May and enjoy so much. Nifty and nearly 50 years, enjoy the bike.

64 - at the moment just get Government money for petrol (winter fuel allowance  :745:) but next year I become an official OAP and that nice Mr. Cameron will give me even more money to pay for my new bike! The nice thing about being a biker in a helmet is that nobody can tell your age unless you ride slow! I quite like it when I'm filtering and cagers squeeze me out like I'm some impudent young hoodlum!  :230: Ride like you stole it and stay young forever......oh dear this is not the attitude....perhaps when I get the new 500X I will become sensible and ride with dignity.

Yeah right!  :150:

If you've not grown up by age 60 - you don't have to!

Scorpion, age not not being apparent when helmeted can have adverse consequences, too. From the Boys in Blue, as I know to my cost. But it's still nice to get a wave & a thumbs-up from young ladies in the back of cars & buses. Quite makes my day.
If I can help somebody as I go along, then my living has not been in vain.

Hope springs eternal & while there's life it's there. Just overtake quick before they twig. Give them a wave as you go, makes them happy too.
