Fred's post and my exchange with madmax-im got me thinking. How will I decide when it's time to hang up the helmet for the last time? My dad decided on his own when his bike riding time was over. He was in my opinion wiser with his bike riding decision than with his 4 wheel driving decision. He drove until a few weeks before his passing at 92. He probably shouldn't have have been driving but taking his keys would have started WW3. Mom quit at 92 voluntary. She just flat said she didn't want to drive anymore. I hope that I realize it's time to quit when I don't feel safe or comfortable. I'm only 62 but I have realized I'm not the rider I once was. I just hope I have enough wisdom to know when it's time. I'm a bit more sedate riding today. Stuffing it into a corner at 2 or 3 times the suggested speed has no appeal. On the XS2 with no fairing 70 fells too fast. 70 on the BMr is OK. I know that I have not ridden much for the last 12 years so somethings will calm down. So my question to you gentlemen is if you have ever given any thought as to when it will be time to hang up your helmet? Like to here other thoughts.
