Welcome OS. I assume the 54 in your logon reflects your dob. If so, I have a full 7 years on you for age. I was born in 47. Sorry to hear about your physical problems. So far I have been spared them, pure luck I guess. I have found the Vic Vision to be light weight in normal riding although it could definitely tax your abilities at near zero speed. I will choose a bike that I can easily handle under normal circumstances and will rely on nearby general population to help me if I fail under abnormal circumstances. So far that has meant getting help from bystanders the couple of times I have lost control of my HD Road Glide Ultra where people nearby were almost eager to help me recover my ride. It is a bit tough for many of us to ask for help but you might be surprised how often even non-riders will volunteer to help you out of a tight spot. People are basically good and eager to help anyone in real trouble, at least that has been my experience.
