Nice looking bike. I'm down in Gilbert, AZ, and "too hot" is an understatement here in the summertime. Weekend morning rides up to the high country (Yarnell, Prescott, Oak Creek, Jerome, Payson) are great to beat the heat. Perhaps we'll meet up sometime.

Hey 62- That would be fun see you on the road. I don't really ride very far down elevation, but I'll keep an eye out for a Repsol if that's yours. Hope you survive the Summer heat.

It's always nice to see that one doesn't have to give up their passion just due to age. You sir are an inspiration. Happy Birthday and here's to many more riding years ahead of you!

Mountain CBR. thanks for sharing. I am in my late 50s and have been riding for quite some time. I have a 2012 1KRR now. I feel the aches and pains after a long ride but I will ride until I cannot flip my leg over it. Thank you and keep riding.

msk- I think you will do fine for a while. I don't do very long rides. I like to get out on a twisty mountain or canyon road early on a weekday so there is little or no traffic and do my best Marquez imitation (actually not even close). If I can get all the way to the top of the mountain and back without seeing a car, it's a good day.

I've ridden from coast to coast and Southern border to Northern border multiple times, but when I was much younger....not anymore....but Sport Bikes were not meant for touring anyway. So far I haven't had any real physical limitations, but who knows how long????

You know the best thing for older folks is "Just keep moving".

Love the bike. May I ask where you got the fairings you have on it in the pics? I love that color scheme. I just picked up a clean 2005 RR model myself a few months back. It was for my 60th birthday coming up in a few weeks. I have been off sportbikes since the mid to late 90's. My last was a Kaw ZX-7 in Kawasaki racing green and Muzzy pipes. Tried to replicate Scott Russell's bike at the time. I have missed it.

Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you and to many more years of riding. ........Mike

Thanks Mike. Here is a link to the company I have ordered from several times....

https://shop.auctmarts.com/fairings/...r.html?cat=122

You may want to wrap your pipes near the fairing lowers and they usually supply self stick insulation for the lowers....definitely use it.
Have fun with your new Fireblade!!!

I have the 05 just like you, only the black with silver. I love th eblack, BUT, I am ready to change it up and the scheme on yours is exactly what I want to do. I think it may be my Christmas present to myself, this way I can spend a while putting them on in no hurry since it will be winter. I turn 50 in January, started riding in 1990. Had a "Minor," accident about 9 years ago and I dont get out as much as I used to. Recently had the urge to just start riding more.

I live in Ca, so I can ride pretty comfortably from march/april thru end of Oct. I rode year round when I was young, now, if it will sprinkle, the bike stays in the garage.

70 and still going on that kind of bike is impressive. Just curious...... are you married?
