PostSubject: Hi from Chesterfield Derbyshire   Mon Apr 25, 2016 7:08 pm

I am 67 years old and would like to get back on two wheels after a break of several years.
I had to give up my last bike(Suzuki V-Strom 650) due to lower back pain and sciatica and I feel a cruiser style bike will better suite my condition.
I like the look of the M800 a great looking bike and from the reviews I have seen it has more than enough power for my needs.
I will appreciate any advice from forum members and look forward to perhaps meeting up in the Derbyshire Peak District some great roads here.Thanks

  Patch! I have a VL800 myself as well as my Velo's. Also have Sciatica & find the seat position to be near as perfect as I've ever had. I had a Pan European ST1300 before & had to get rid as it was crippling me & was not comfy for my wife either but we got on with the cruiser like we'd been riding it for years! I've been to France & quite a few other places on it & wouldn't swap it except for another one exactly the same!
BTW I'm in Spondon near Derby myself so not far away!

Welcome patch 101...we have got a lot in common. I am back on two wheels after a long break and I had a Vstrom which I thought was a great bike plus you are just a year older than me. Lots of good info here. wwweee

Patch.  Hope you find the information you need.  Why not try a test ride - \I'm sure you'd be happy with the ride. Hopefully meet up some time in the  Peak District.

welcm from me.

My last bike was a V-strom and I loved it but, following a knee replacement I found I couldn't ride it without discomfort so it had to go. I now have a C800C and it is Sooooooo comfortable.

67, a mere youngster

Welcome on board Patch.  I swapped from an 1100 Katana due to back & shoulder problems - the VL is so much more comfortable - even better when I fitted flat drag bars

wwweee Patch! I'm 48 now, but had a full left hip replacement when I was 42 due to a condition known as AVN, and also have lower disc problems in my back from arthritis, and I have to say the cruiser style has still been easy to ride and comfortable with all this going on. Enjoy your new two-wheel adventures!
