61yrs old. Just bought a 2014 ES with 9700 miles on it. I also have a 2008 Goldwing that is now for sale. I’m looking forward to seeing where my S10 will take me!

I'm 58. This is the most expensive bike I've ever bought and I wouldn't have put out that kind of cash when I was younger. They would have had to be around longer and depreciated more for me in the younger days. I don't like pushing this big beast around in the shop etc, but I do love riding it. Better performance than you would expect all the way around and one of the best handling touring bikes I've ridden. It's just a bit heavy when it stops.

Previous bike was a Yamaha TDM900 and got the impression most of the owners on the forum were getting on a little... Never asked the question there, so I'll do it here.  ???  Wondering what sort of age group are attracted to our awesome S10. It's a big bike and can cost a few quid (£/$), which might keep more of the 'kids' away? Interesting to get a feel for who the bike attracts.  8) I'm 43 to start...  ;D What's your age?  ::017::

I’m 61 yrs old but feel like 40 when commuting to work on the S10. Well ok maybe feel more like 55 yrs on those 18° winter days.

63 years, I’ve had a Shovelhead for 35 years which is now semi retired as the S10 has the long distance duties.
