I am new to motorbike and the  F750 GS is my first one .. at 55 year old.
I enjoy it despite the COVID Period.
I wonder if other members are located near Paris France.

I need advise on scottoiler.

Hi and welcome to the forum from Wales.

You are never too old to come to biking. It is a matter of the mind-set. The F50GS is a nice bike to start with.

Hello from USA, Illinois.
I just bought a brand new 750 GS. I just hope that I did the right desition.  I am planning to tour all the great lakes area next summer and later cross Canada towards Alaska. Hopefully this bike will treat my 56 years old rear and bones. I own a Honda CTX 700 , very comfortable but I just do not feel that it is the right bike for my ambitious plan.
I was thanking of something more lighter and capable to use  on less forgiving paths. My ideal was the Africa Twin but to expensive, taller and heavy.  So far happy with my 2 days old bike.

Bonjour. I'm actually quite close to comparison to Kaliman from Illinois :D :D
Welcome to the club!
As for the fear of falling...learn to love and cherish the experience. You want it. You need it. You can't wait for the next hit.
