That sounds a lot like me. I have 5 cars and 6 bikes, a house and yard, and am years behind. I just got 4 new/used wheels for one of my old cars. It took me 3 days to swap them all out. No energy, and hurt all over. I'm not getting any better either, the doctor has made that clear. I'm 60 and should have 20 years ahead of me. But it doesn't always work that way. I can walk maybe a block. And I just bought a used 1997 Vulcan 750, and 2 new tires for it. It's in the living room (what used to be a living room) and I tinker with it a little every day. I'm hoping that by the time the long hot summer is over, it will be ready to go, and I will ride it at least a couple hundred miles a week. I have a 2006 Vespa GT200 scooter, and have discovered I can ride that 2-3 hours a day for several days in a row, in the winter. I won't even try to ride in the summer here. I'm just not the type to give up. Once I gave up, I wouldn't last a year.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
