New Canuck from the BC Interior!
« on: 04 September, 2020, 11:55:26 PM »
Hi all... Like a lot of you guys I'm a 74 year old who still loves riding. Been riding since I was 19 and finally got my hands on a great 2012 CBF1000 FA a few years ago. It really is the do-it-all bike! Thursday rides with the 'Jurassic Riders' is the highlight of my week. Hope to keep it up as long as possible! Take care - stay safe!

A warm welcome to you.
I bought my second mk2 a month ago. I can't fault it.

Welcome youngster! I hope you have at least as many more years happy riding as I have - and still am. :031: (Even if I'm still a little restricted as I recover from COVID 19  :172:)

Reading somewhere recently that there are as many riders in the UK over the age of 59 as there are under.

Honestly, this is not good news.

I wonder if UK Driving Licence Laws have any bearing on that?
