Touring Motorcycle For Seniors

There is some merit to the adage, “You are never too old to start riding.” And if you’ve ever experienced the rush of riding a motorcycle at one point in your life but took a very lengthy break from it, you have every reason to go back and experience that rush once more. Being a senior rider has several advantages over being a beginner rider, including the likelihood that your finances will be marginally better, giving you more options for starting, and the fact that insurance companies are more likely to insure a more experienced rider.

10 Best Touring Motorcycle For Seniors

1. KAWASAKI VERSYS 650

The Kawasaki Versys 650 can be a decent alternative if you want to ride your bike on long distances but don’t want your body to feel like you’ve just ridden a horse. Despite being advertised as an adventure bike, the Versys 650 seems more at home on pavement than on gravel. Senior riders will laud this bike’s comfort due to its upright and relaxed sitting position. Shorter riders may find the seat height troublesome. However, Kawasaki provides a lowering kit for those who require it.

2. ROYAL ENFIELD HIMALAYAN

The Royal Enfield Himalayan may appear to be a street bike modified for off-road use, but this Indian adventure bike was built to dominate Indian country roads. This compact adventure motorcycle is tough as nails and built to compete with models like the KTM Adventure 390 and BMW G 310 GS. This bike has power that is extremely controlled and is perfect for senior riders who want to dabble in adventure riding but lack the cutting-edge technology seen in its rivals. Riders with more experience will also appreciate how unrefined this bike is because it has few electrical aids that you can rely on to get yourself out of tricky circumstances when off-road.

3. HARLEY DAVIDSON STREET GLIDE

best sport touring motorcycle of all time

We advise avoiding the Sportsters and purchasing a Harley-Davidson Street Glide if a Harley-Davidson is all that is on your mind. If you prefer the traditional Bagger motorcycle look, a Road King would be another option, but they are essentially the same bike. One of Harley-Davidson’s great American Tourers, the Street Glide is crammed with touring amenities, so you can be sure you’ll have a comfortable ride on this enormous two-wheeler. Because of the weight, newer senior riders might want to reconsider buying one because it can be difficult to maneuver in the parking lot.

Many retro motorcycles are once again available on the market because older riders may desire to remember their first experience with a bike. The Triumph Bonneville T100 is most likely one of the best classic-designed bikes that comes to mind. It also makes a wonderful first bike for a senior rider who is just starting. Even for shorter riders, the 31-inch seat height makes it quite approachable, and the power makes sure you won’t get bored with it too soon. This makes for a terrific bike for both young and elderly. Add to that a comfortable riding position, excellent handling, and all at a very reasonable price.

What should you do if you want a sports-tourer with all the features and comforts of a bagger? You should choose the BMW K 1600, and specifically the K 1600 B (bagger).

BMW has always been associated with senior riders because they are the ones who can typically buy one. Despite weighing 785 pounds, it is surprisingly agile and simple to ride.
