My father is getting fairly advanced in age. He currently owns a vmax, which he has been riding less and less each year. With a nagging knee injury from his college football days, an arthritic hand from a brief boxing career, and a bad back from riding a desk for the last 30 years, he has yet to take the bike out this year, and is thinking it might be time to sell. So cherish every ride, you never know when circumstances might turn on you. I am trying to get him onto a CanAm Spyder... not the best solution, but at least he could still get out there...

The Goldwing trikes are expensive but one of the most confy rides on the road and one of the least physically demanding to ride. I wish him the best and hope he can find a way to get out on the road, we all need to be thankful for each day we can still ride.
