VinnyR11 Posted May 13, 2011 Share Posted May 13, 2011 I think it's time... After almost 40 years of riding and loving every minute of riding bikes, the thrill is gone. I'll put off riding on a nice day simply because I don't feel like going through the ATGATT routine. I'll take a gorgeous ride (like I did yesterday) and not come back thrilled and rejuvenated. I no longer look longingly through my maps to find our next motorcycle tour. Very odd. It's not the bike. I love my new R1200RT, and was hoping it would bring back some of the lost energy, but it never did. I've tried smaller bikes thinking maybe it's just too big, but no deal. It's been a long process of soul searching, but the answer I've been avoiding is the right one. I think I'm done with bikes...at least for now. Who knows, maybe I just need a year or two off. My plan is to sell my almost new RT for a very fair price...LOOK for a deal in the classifieds coming within a week or so, or PM me if interested. I'll probably buy a nice used Miata, which I love driving but have never owned. It is the closest car to a motorcycle IMHO. It's been an amazing time. Great bikes and great people. Very few things have given me more enjoyment, but life goes on. Link to comment
