Yeah... you tend to bounce when yer young though as you age yer go splat.

My thoughts are the relative fitness levels have a lot to do with it. Fit and well muscled is more resilient then wasted muscles and pudgy..

Just pampered myself with a new Moto Guzzi California Touring. I love it....possibly more than my children.

Had to ditch the flares when they tangled in the chain John ... but I think you also need to fess up to the two (TWO?) chicks in the Elan and the lemon (LEMON?) shirt on the line. Happy days.

One bike is never enough. I have a 2001 Fireblade, a 2016 Triumph Bonnevile Scrambler and last week bought a 2010 Aprila RSV4 1000R. The Aprila is a beserker. On the road it is difficult to get it out of 2nd gear without breaking the speed limit massively.

Speaking of Ducatis. I like them air cooled. Here is my 900SS-CR, 1994 model, that I restored this winter. Being a carby, it also runs quite happily on left over 100LL.
