Had my bike out today but I'm too old for:
Bad brakes
Right hand shift
Fuzzy mirrors (should be a law that all cars run with headlights on)
No turn signals
Etc.
My relearning curve is kind of flat.
Two guys wanted to buy it and that made me feel good.

Forgot how much pressure pushing on you without one. I had a big Plexi-3 on my 750 Honda and at 85 the air was perfectly calm behind it. Got some buffeting at lower speeds but above 85 (cruising across I-90/94 out west)I might have been able to light up a cigarette.
