Exclamation Time to Switch Gears - Selling the Bike!

Just in case anyone here is interested...

*** Victory Cross Country Tour ***

After over 50 years of owning/riding I've decided to take a break from riding and get a 5th wheel camper and spend more time taking life easy instead of riding for hours on end. The ad states "health reasons" but it's nothing serious. Getting some arthritis in my right hand and riding for more than 5 or 6 hours is just taking too much out of me. The "fun factor" of riding just isn't what it used to be. It's time to go park my butt in a campground or somewhere and do some fishin.

(Never thought I'd see the day this would happen)

Heh .... with a trike I'd still be twisting the throttle and wearing myself out riding....

As mentioned... "taking a break" ... not totally giving up riding forever. Plan is to get something smaller / different ... just for short rides.

Ya, it's the right decision

Well, I feel for ya but frankly, I guess I'm just getting tired of riding all the time and not doing some of the other things I enjoy. Can't really afford to do all of them so need to sell the bike so I can afford the other stuff ... I could prolly live with the pain or take meds and keep riding, but that doesn't get me to where I want to be.

I used to hunt and fish a lot when I was much younger. Haven't done that for a long, long time. What I enjoyed the most was getting out into the country, camping and exploring the back roads, etc .... need to get back to some of that. Ya, I could see myself in an open Jeep too! But I'll settle for my current truck and a 5th wheel camper, couple fishing kayaks, and a good bottle of Rum! LOL
