Bicyclist 50+ years

First posts.
I have been bicycling for more than about 50 years and motorcycling for about 15. I have a Raleigh M20 and a Diamondback Edgewood.
I should sell one but like them both so much.
5 or 10 miles every day, or every other day (if I'm lucky) and I feel good, sleep better, etc.
And, I stop at the store, the library, for lunch, etc. And don't burn gas. Don't waste gas. I guess some would consider that unamerican.
I saw the Tour of California at the Rose Bowl Saturday. And watched much of it on tv. Rose Bowl was about a 25 mile run and easy in and out on the motorcycle.
Tnx

Welcome.
Keep both bikes, sell the motorcycle and stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the *old farts*.

It's nice to have a back-up bike while the main one is being fixed

Ron, I can't believe you'd kick a guy below the belt like that. Sell the motorcycle? I could never do that. Nor the car for that matter.
If I want to run 300 miles, moto is the answer.
Also it's nice, exactly the same as one of the escort bikes (motor) at the Tour of California. So going in and out they thought I was one of the escort guys and put me in the VIP parking.
I didn't get the free lunch, but I got free parking.
