Chaz........Come on over again to the States. Bring a bit of your favorite Scotch and share it with McG and me. We`re just here waiting as we began our retirement a whole lot of yrs ago.
11 weeks agoWell Chaz - you`re 20 years younger than me. Nobody has had more fun than me being retired. Started by selling everything I owned. Bought a 44 foot power boat and boated up and down the east coast of USA for 5 years. then in `99 sold the boat, bought a house and 2 cars Myrtle beach South Carolina. Decided I ought to own a bike and went to Daytona, Florida bike week to look at what I should buy. Ended up with a Fatboy in early 2000. Rode that 58,000 miles and in 2004 bought an Ultra Classic. With both bikes I rode pretty much all over the USA.. Put about 32,000 miles on it and sold it 3 years back. Diabetic legs don`t work so good. Am now back into listening to good music in local bars at least twice a week. Have slowed down a lot. In between I watch softball at a local college and read books a lot. Need to figure out a little something to do but I`m in no hurry. Before I retired I was the guy with the most toys and won. So so do all you can, within your means, and have a great time. You`ll slow down some after age 70. Have a great time and ride safe.
11 weeks agoBloody hell McG that`s the way to do it. For me to do that I would have to get divorced....Mmmm let me think about that LOL
11 weeks agoCheaper to keep her, Chaz!!LOL
11 weeks agoTake her for a ride on the bike once in a while. Much less expensive and she can hold on to you.
11 weeks agoI have been retired for 9 years now, worked for Dupont for 36 years and retired when I was 61, started drawing my social security at age 62. I have put about 40,000 on my 2003 road king, and 63500 on my 2010 Roadglide, and then 12,500 on my current bike the 2016 Roadglide. So I have ridden around 115,000 miles since I retired, where has the time gone. Left Dupont the end of july 2009 and have not looked back, have not been back to the place but 1 time since I retired. Good luck , and good riding, you guys have a great night!!!!!!!!!!!!!
11 weeks agoVery true, McG. Mine likes to ride her own though. Still works!
11 weeks agoLots of riding, MoScooter. We should all be so lucky. Hopefully I`ll be able to come close to those miles.

EOD and Chaz......you guys will find out soon enough, but I`m gonna tell ya that each year of retirement goes by faster than the ones before. Now, when you get into your mid 70`s, even weeks start to fly by.
Enjoy it all while you can, Time does indeed fly.
