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

Hi from Chesterfield Derbyshire 304308752  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!

Hi from Chesterfield Derbyshire 1530558013 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.

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!
