I am 76 intend to keep RVing until our health tells us it is time to stop, like George in the post above, I am still riding my GL1800 when I feel that I am unsafe on two wheels I intend to trike it an keep on going down the road. The only concession I feel that we have gave into age is we stopped going on long trips with the bike and pulling a Time out camper behind my bike. We decided that wasn't as much fun anymore so we bought a RV and pull the my wife trike and my bike in an enclosed trailer.

My father just turned 89 this year and last nov. sold his 35 ft tri-axle Airsteam trailer and 4 door Chevy Duramax desiel pickup. He told me that He'd reached the point where driving wasn't fun anymore. Glad to see he knew when to quit. I'm only 66 so I can only hope I got those genes!

Your Father is a wise man. I turn 81 next month and still ride my motorcycle every Saturday with my retired friends. My right knee was injured in the Korean War and they operated on it. It was okay until about 8 years ago and it started bothering me and I could not safely hold my Gold Wing up so I triked it....and away I go...ha ha We are still RVing and I would love a DP but know I would not use it much and NEVER outlive it...

It is hell getting old.....
