I'm 10 years younger than you and I'm starting to count rest of life riding years. Thanks to giving me more hope. It seems to me around 70 is more of a cutoff but its unusual to see cross country riders approaching 70. My Dad turns 81 next week but was admitted via ambulance this evening into CCU. Possible heart attack. Don't know. But his implanted defribrilator went off 22 times in an hour. I need to get some living in.

Hope all goes well with your Dad, good thoughts, prayers sent his way.  Serious - let us know how he is doing when you get a chance.

Had those thoughts more seriously when I was about your age.  Another reason I chose HD.  Survived cancer, not sure how many years left, sure others can relate.  Not a fatalist & understand your comment very well. Got to get some living in.  It goes by all too quickly & making better memories vs making money is a crossroads I hope to reach sooner than later.

Have met a few 80+ guys out on the road riding & most were on Harleys. Not the norm, maybe more so in FL due to population being older.  One thing they all had in common - they did not look or act 80 years old.  Would have guessed some of them to be mid to late 60's.  Why some & not others?  Don't know, do care.  From conversations did not appear they were all on some Jack LaLane lifestyle of healthy, healthy, healthy. My Mom is 83.  She quit driving but is still up & around, in her own home, cooking, etc.  A riding friend quit when he turned 70, not that long ago, for several reasons.  Selling his bikes & stuff.  He had a small wreck in the Georgia mountains & as best can tell lost confidence in his ability. Wishful thinking I will be on 2 wheels at 80, no idea but if I can, I will.  Everybody is on their own road, riding or not.

Jim, our best to your dad.  Like Mike said, please let us know how he makes out.

I went through the whole how long have I got thing.  f$#@ it.  I stopped worrying about it and just live everything day by day.  I do make sure that I only finance two vehicles and the mortgage at one time so that's my criteria for getting new toys.  NO CREDIT CARD DEBT EVER FOR ANY REASON EVER AGAIN!!!!  I take some chit because I may have to skip out on a trip or toy if we get it with a few extra bills but I sleep better, or lay awake all night in pain better than I ever did with credit card debt.

I rode a few Victory's and two Honda's.  Tried a buddy's V-star.  Sat on some monster Cowy Sucky Vulcan.  None them came close to the feel of the HD.  They felt cheap, even though I know they're more reliable.  They didn't have a layout that I liked.  If you covered the brand up on all them and I didn't know what was what by the controls I'd still buy the HD.  And that's why I will give the mothership more money when I decide it's time for another bike.  Now at least two years away.

I can and will go against brand loyalty.  I just traded my F-150 on a Nissan Titan.  I drove it and it drive better than my Ford.  The Ford Dealers (3) in my area have all pissed me off as much as we complain about HD dealers on the Garage.  The Nissan dealer was great to deal with and I have three close friends who deal with them for sales and service and love them.  Finally, the price was better for the same specs as the new F-150 I was looking at.  Other than MPG.  But the price of the vehicle will more than make up for that extra expense and I get to f$#@ with the environment more which makes me happy to tell liberals.

Now if it only would stop snowing here so they could put my accessories on it.  They've been closed two days for weather and spent one day of time cleaning the lot and cars.  Argh!  Oh, I guess this part should be on the pissed off thread.  Hysterical Laughing

I hear you on the credit card thing. It's insidious. I paid off mine over the summer. What a wise move that's proven to be.

Dad was in V-fib. His pacemaker-defibrillator saved his life. He stabilized with medication. We'll find out more about the cause in the next day or so. He cleared for surgery just last week to remove his cancerous bladder and prostrate in a couple weeks. That's likely not going to happen now. If the heart or cancer doesn't do him in it'll be his lungs which are shot from 60 years of smoking. He's a tough old mule who's fought off the reaper more times than anyone reincarnated 10 times. He's accepting yet hopeful. I'll keep you posted.

Those things are amazing.  My dad has one but it's never gone off.  But your dad is now another in a getting long list of people I've heard about who've been saved by it.   Thumbs Up

Give him our best!

I just watched my Donzi head out the driveway on her way to her new home in Ga. She was as good as a hole in the water as anyone could ask for. It did take part of the first year to figure out her quirks and make her fit me and my style of fishing.

It is time for a new toy......Suzuki DL 650 ABS Adventure  http://www.suzukicycles.com/Product%20Lines/Cycles/Products/V-Strom%20650/2012/DL650AADV.aspx     msrp $9799

Have heard and read nothing but good reviews on this bike. Has more storage than my HD. Better fuel mileage and enough power to pull the runt where ever we want to go.

Bye Bye Harley.  I would never purchase another new Harley.
