    700 -800 miles a day? that is not touring that is just mile munching and hitting toll roads and motorways. Touring to me is meandering through the countryside and avoiding motorways and toll roads where ever possible.

    I'm 66 also. had the tracer since Jan this year. new 2016 model. Love it. I bought it because of its speed ,agility, price and the fact there's plenty of room at the back to tie down my zimmer frame.

    It is getting to a destination when short on time. You've then got time to ride the roads you went for in the time you've got, rather than adding a few extra days to the trip.

    First time here, but so glad I've have, what great advice and opinion. I'm 67, been riding with a few interruptions like children and minor distractions like that, since was 17. Couldn't handle the GS's anymore and just picked up my new Tracer 900. My first Yamaha since my Super Tenere back in '90s: what a difference and what a bike. So easy to ride: makes the BMW feel like a tractor. Looking at the age range here it strikes me that you never do know what's behind a full face helmet.
