Well, in my case the G310GS wasn't intended to be my primary bike. I ordered it for my wife. A couple of days before delivery I totalled the R1200GS by crashing it into the front of a car. After I returned from hospital, my wife told my she would never ride the G310GS, or any motorcycle. I started to use it, adapt it for my needs and now I'm very fond of the Baby-GS. For long distance travel on asphalt, I prefer an old Yamaha XJ900S Diversion. I bought it as a learning bike for my stepson. By different reasons, it seems I'm keeping it for my self. I'm dreaming of a Moto Guzzi V85TT, thou. Maybe someday I'll find means to fullfill that dream.not quite KneeDown ... I'm catching you up @ 68...
Like you, age dictated a lighter type of bike.
Is there a prize for the oldest, if so I win so far at 87. I got the 310 as a downsizing move from my previous Cagiva Elefant 650 which my oldest son now has. I also have a Cagiva Allazurra that I bought new in 1985, I am still comfortable on that one so it's a keeper.
Hi, I’m one of those over 70 and been riding for 46 years. Had every brand, cruisers, touring, adventure bikes, even a Ural sidecar outfit. I test road the G310R, and had to have one. I live in CA in Gold Country just off Highway 49. This bike is a blast on these twisting mountain roads. Looking to add a windscreen just haven’t decided which one.
I am 74 yrs. old. Been riding for 56 years. I have had as many as 7 motorcycles at once. I currently own only a G310R and a. Vespa Elettrica. I ride the G310R mostly on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Which I can get on in about 20 minutes from my house.
I am 84, been riding on and off in South Africa since my Ariel in 1958, mostly BMWs. Now in Florid. Had a fun couple years on the 310R and upgraded to the 310 GS. Believe it or not the seat is slightly bigger and it doubles the comfort range.
