Great video David.One day I would like to tour Scotland,England & Ireland
I'm 72 and just not ready for the hit on handling in twistys to be taken with the B. Soooo happy with my GTL, Wilbers, laser jammer and radar : )You might consider trying the K1600B...I got to test ride one for a couple hours during my recent service appointment (K1600GTL). I really like the 1600B...a lot. I was surprised how much I like it.
You may be right based on the decline in motorcycle riders, especially the younger crowd.......Men (I think I read all men), I am in the same club at 58; but I see this as a bad thing. We are, it seems, the end of an era. I would feel better if there were a whole bunch of people aged 40's and 30's among us.
There will be a steadily increasing supply of used motorcycles in the years to come.
David,Thank you kind sir.
The roads in the Lake District can be challenging. The guy who did the overtake did get a reprimand and I put it in the video to remind him.
One of the guys I was following at the end (Steven) is an ex road racer. Search youtube for the Tandragee 100, I live 5 miles from this.
Steven gave up road racing (thankfully) after he got the nick name "Cartwheel"
I concur.You may be right based on the decline in motorcycle riders, especially the younger crowd.......
That said, the high-end long distance touring/Sport-touring market has mainly been an "old man's" sport due to the high price of the toys......
Not many younger folks with families, huge debt, and trying to invest in a 401K can afford such a toy.
I agree with this too because I struggled myself raising four kids on one salary. I can say that what we prioritized financially in our time (house, kids, etc) is not what our children would agree to. Millennials are different to us, just as we (pot-smoking hippies) are different culturally that our parents. ****, we were radical compared to (at least) my kids and their friends. I gave my father fits on occasion; my Sons and Daughters are benign by comparison.Not many younger folks with families, huge debt, and trying to invest in a 401K can afford such a toy.
Hi Daryl, I don't know if there are any videos of Steven "Doing the business", just know he retired now. When I followed him around the Lake District he was on his race bike and had his race leathers on. Think he has upgrade now to a Kawasaki tourer, can't remember which one.David,
I wish I could live 5 miles from you. Wow.
Not too keen on earning any nicknames from you though. :surprise:
I've never done a cartwheel without a bike; would hate to do one on a bike.
Watched a few of the MANY videos of the T100. Does one in particular show Steven doing the cartwheel? How old was he when this happened.
