Old Canuck

Starting my 80th soon. Have put 90,000 on my K1300S. Also have a K100ss ??? It seems to be getting heavier (could be me) I no longer have a pillion buddy (to hard for her to climb on and off) Got my MC liscence 62 years ago. Have owned 34 machines 4 BMW ,BSA's -3 gold stars, Triumphs, Norton, Laverda, Huskies and Jap stuf. It's time to downsize (maybe a KTM 390 duke) The 310 BMW is out due to cost of oem parts. (a set of shocks for the 1300 is worth as much as the bike).

Welcome in the nuthouse
There are a few old (yet younger ) Canucks who would surely like to know about your stories, so the first beer is on me

Re: Old Canuck

Welcome to the forum Art. Lots of great info here about your 1300s. Maybe you can share some of your info on how the rest of us can make it to your age and still be riding our bikes.
