Hello All

recently got a new 2015 Street 750.
neat lil bike, I call it my lil v-rod :D

had many bikes over many years, 50 yrs to be exact.
this ol grandpa wanted something to ride locally and with in the speed limits. Done all the big bike, fast bike, long haul bike thing many times. just ready to slow down and enjoy the scenery at a slower pace.

@Rock270,


"had many bikes over many years, 50 yrs to be exact."


Welcome to the club! @ 72 with lower back and extremities issues I needed something lighter and more nimble. I hated selling my SOFT TAIL but the STREET fills my needs, perfectly.

yes sir, I understand what you mean. I too am not as young or strong as I use to be either.
as we know, at our more experienced age and prone to having less agility, it makes perfect sense to simply down size and "keep on riding."

enjoy the ride.
