Thanks all, will still be round here. I feel a bit of a wimp when I read of others still riding like Dave Barr!

Tough, sad decision but one we will all have to make eventually. Glad to hear you will be hanging here!

Oh, BTW, Happy Birthday!

Retirement is over rated. I am 71 and still work (usually 7 days a week). Some days a lot of my work can be done off the bike, so it's a two-fer many days. I rode half the day yesterday getting too and from a couple of jobs (If I had needed my truck, it would have been all day, because traffic around LA is crazy). Today I am getting ready for the next couple of rides (jobs). I notice when I walk around I can feel age catching up, but riding is just like it always was. I don't kick doors in when I get cut off like the old days but otherwise I haven't changed much. Big problem with any kind of trike is that it puts you back in traffic flow instead of between it. One of yesterday's jobs out near Long Beach is the Wife's job today, and she needed all her stuff so she has her truck and she left at 5 to avoid traffic (still took over an hour), and the trip home will take about 3 hours, I don't expect to see her until after 7 tonight. I had my truck out there on Friday so I know exactly what she will be up against.
