Life is good


75 years of age I’ve bought a ten year old Yamaha FZ6 S2 that’s been loved and done only 3000 miles. It is like new. No elec­tron­ics pack­age so it’s rea­son­ably sim­ple, it’s sporty but com­fort­able, great han­dling, good brakes and for me lots of power. I found some real gems that have seen more pol­ish than miles so on a bud­get it’s not too late for any older rider to buy a great bike. And at 75 I’ve fallen in love all over again. I reg­u­larly go out and ride 100 miles or more with­out know­ing it. I’m still com­pet­i­tive and love the buzz of sheer power when I want it and feel lucky I’m fit and men­tally alert to be able to use it. So for me a happy end­ing – a re­tire­ment that I could never ever have dreamed about. Chris Green, email
