    I know the Tracer is aimed at the 50+ age group, just wondering am I the only one going against the grain. I brought the bike brand new for my 30th Birthday present to myself to replace my old and battered FZS600

    I get that it is tailored for the older rider, but I have had a lot of fun in the 2 years I have owned it. It still surprises me how agile and quick the bike is yet happily covers distance in comfort for me and my wife on a tour - best of everything

    45, bought the tracer mainly because the wife in the last few years has discovered how much fun it is to sit on the back and be ferried all over europe. Toss up was between the tracer and a super ten, they're good bikes, nothing at all wrong with them but the tracer seems to enjoy being ridden harder and is certainly more agile.

    The other reason was after so many years in construction, my wrists, knees and back are pretty f*cked now so the more sporty stuff is off the cards for long journeys.
