63 and still manage to put around 5K miles on the 990 Adv. every year.

I admit that the trails I pick to ride are getting to be the easier/smoother ones and I stop "to enjoy the view" a lot more often!

You truly are as young as you feel, unfortunately my x-rays say that I'm closer to 80 than the 60 I'll be next month. I've got one more good crash left in me & I'm hoping to save it for a while.

Most of my fun is traveling to the trails on north GA mountain tight curvy paved roads . . . Which is a lot of fun with Distanzia tires . . . Which are dual sport tires. If I lived out west . . . . I would have TKC 80's most of the time.

Two sets of wheels replaced two different bikes. SE w/canyon wheels is a fun experience

56 year old (young) SE rider. When it's not trying to kill me, it makes me act like a teenage hooligan

Well, 64 here and on an SE for ~27,000 miles.

And a 990 Dakar

And a 950 SM

And my friend (docgonzo) who's 67 or 68 has an SE (~30,000 miles) as well.

70 and still going strong

Although I don't have a SE, I do own a 2011 Adventure that I get into the woods every chance I can get. I have been riding for over 45 years and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. Yahoo

Ok all us SE rider's just to put a bug in every SE rider's ear CJ said he might make a run of the FP lever's for the SE if there is several SE rider's 10 or 20 interested in these . He might make these fit the SE with his jig set-up, Just a head's up maybe around June if this does happen. I know I really would love a pair of them short lever's on my SE....Ride On...

You may want to start a FP lever's for the SE thread.
Will CJ give a senior discount (55 or older)?

How is he doing on the oversize rotor adapter for seniors that like riding SE's on the pavement . . . . to get to the dirt?

We seniors need every break (or brake) we can get

Got me by 7 and change

Props to all you bad ass elder SE statesmen.

I'm feeling the urge to go a bit lighter myself eventually, and can see myself switching over from my Adv S to the SE someday. Although hopefully KTM adds a lighter 750 twin to the mix.

I love the SE... but it wasn't around in 04 when I wanted an Africa Twin killer.

Keep young all.
