Newby, but much older than most

Gentlepersons,

I am hoping to be able to find a Suzuki S40 this week. I just sold my 650 V-Star Custom and don't want to be without a ride for long.

I will be 75 years old next February and need a lighter weight bike for the next few years, and then I guess I will have to go with 3 wheels.

I am an avid do it yourselfer and hope to learn many things here.

My friends call me Kenny G

I've often thought that, if there's only one interest I still have when I'm too old to do the Army thing, I'd want it to be riding. Nice one and welcome, Kenny!
