New Guy Looking at the Speedmaster
I'm in my mid-50s and got my first street bike, a 2012 CBR250R, when I was 49. My second bike is a 2015 BMW F800GT. Now I'm thinking about a retro standard. I've always admired the Honda CB1100 and now the Speedmaster has caught my eye. I'm short of inseam so I'm always on the lookout for cool bikes with an accessible seat height.
I like to ride year-round here in Kentucky, USA and go on extended group rides with some of my friends and colleagues who also ride. We've done one big Spring / early Summer trip together every year since I joined them in 2013 and usually we do one shorter ride in the Fall. We've done the southern Appalachians from Virginia to North Carolina and Tennessee all the way down to Northern Georgia. We've ridden to Western New York, ridden Death Valley out of Las Vegas, and ridden to Big Bend National Park out of Austin, Texas.
P.S. Almost forgot: I work for a German company, so I've also rented bikes there and ridden the Black Forest, Swiss Alps, Austrian Alps, Slovenia, and dipped into northern Croatia.
