If judging a book by its cover, those two machines are certainly not neglected! I know it may sound odd, but I enjoy maintaining my bikes. Both look awesome.Glad to hear you are back on a bike and happy!
My wife and I are both 60. She has a '16 NC700x and I have an '18NC750x.
We are leaving in a couple weeks, possibly heading to Nova Scotia? Or maybe just touring New England? Much of that depends upon the border, the expected Canadian border guard strike, regulations on the Canadian side after we cross, etc etc etc. Maybe it is the wrong year to cross the border as tourists? But Nova Scotia sounds so alluring. Honestly not sure where we will end up, maybe Michigan? Who knows. But we are going to get out of here for a couple weeks, maybe three.
We got back into riding several years ago after decades of scooter riding. You'll get back into it soon enough. FWIW, my wife has Givi V35 side cases, but no top box. Her HJC helmet fits in her Frunk, but also fits into the V35 clamshell opening side cases. so she has options. I have Hepco & Becker Gobi side/top cases. The Givi stuff is pretty nice but the H&B is built to take a beating.
