From the publishers of Motorcycle Consumer News, Shifting Gears at 50 is a one-of-a-kind motorcycling manual for returning and late-entry riders, essentially anyone 40 years old and up who's looking to hit the road on two wheels. Author Philip Buonpastore, a motorcycle journalist and retired US Air Force photographer, helps readers gear up to get back on a motorcycle (or get on one for the first time). Buonpastore's guide includes all the basics: *Buying the right bike *Gear and equipment *Getting the bike up to speed *Learning to ride *The importance of taking a road course *Venturing out on the first ride *Extending rides to long-distance jaunts *And more! There are sidebars by riding-safety instructor and expert Walt Fulton, offering sound advice on safety precautions and execution for every leg of the new and returning rider's journey. Bounpastore emphasizes what older riders should be aware of and which factors can affect their rides. Adding lots of great firsthand advice are humorous and helpful stories collected by the author and related by returning riders at various ages, from their late 30s to 60s. Buonpastore shares five of his favorite travelogues covering his long-distance tours around the US, from the American South
