I am a 69 year old Male that is looking to purchase his first big bike. I am 5ft 10 inches tall and weigh 185 lbs. and in excellent health. I have years of bicycling experience. Both Road and Single track Mtn Biking. Thinking it is about time to continue my enjoyment of being on two wheels, but have some power. Ideally, I would like to get into a Bike that I can ride locally and then also do some medium distance touring. I have been looking at the category of cruisers. I.E Harley and or Indian. I would prefer something that I can mount a windshield and bags for the medium distance touring. I really like the looks of the and lines of the Harley Softail Standard. I see they have one available with bags and windshield. However, as I have researched bikes, I believe I came across information indicating this bike is susceptible to instability at highway speeds. Ok, my questions. As and inexperience older rider what would be your recommendations for a first bike? I really would like a bigger bike (i.E not start with a beginners bike and then be unhappy with lack of power, etc) I am open to all feedback and opinions. Thanks so much for your help.
