I'm 69 and have 6 bikes, the latest is a Kawasaki ZX14 that I'm putting bar risers on, but I also have an FJR, Concours, Suzuki B King, Yamaha FZ6R and the NC700X. I like to ride aggressively, but less so than the past. I've totaled 3 bikes over my 55 years of riding, but thankfully never been hurt seriously. My advice is to give it some time, and I'll bet by late spring, you'll want to be riding again--it's addictive. I don't know what I'll do when I'm no longer physically able to ride, but I'm going to ride every chance I get. I'm still working (I've got a son in dental school), and have been diagnosed with chronic lymphoma (I'm ok for now), so riding time is precious to me. Just keep on truckin'.
