    I'm not replacing it. I'm done.

    Beautiful day... get the bike warmed up and head out. 15 minutes later I'm bored.

    If I'm not strafing a twisty road at obscene speeds there is just no thrill to it. I have done that dance with danger so many times for so long... and I'm 60 now and not as sharp as I once was... and I don't ride enough to stay sharp. Time to let go of it.

    Damn, hope you’ll still pop in here. I’m hoping there will be more bike related conversations sooner or later.

    Well hell, that explains it. Guess I've only got about another month before I gotta sell my bikes!

    Last year I was busy with building a pole barn on the farm and doing a lot of RVing and probably only put about 5,000 miles on the bikes. Just didn't feel interested in riding much. This year I have a renewed interest. Really started missing my buddies and have been riding every Sunday with the club. Have a few trips planned with them too. I'm glad I didn't sell them, because you never know what the future holds.

    I'd give it a year. It's not like the value is going down more and it's paid for, right.

    Is there nothing between ‘obscene speeds’ and relaxed riding? If not, then yes, sell it before you hurt yourself or others. Bummer really.

    We’re the same age but I can’t imagine selling my CCT. I’ll certainly miss your insight and knowledge about motorcycles though.

    That bike would look great in my Garage with Maga stickers and Trump's face on it.

    You still want to sell it? Lol!

    Seriously. I hope you keep it. Damn fine looking bike!

    That's the problem. When I have a perfect opportunity to ride and I can walk right past the bike and think, "Naaa" and climb up in the truck, obviously I'm over it.

    Since the bike got re-done I probably haven't ridden it 5000 miles. My heart is just not in it. Someone should be enjoying it.

    I swear, I own pretty much the ultimate cruiser and I don't ride it.
