Three Fun Rides For The Retired Guy

Have you just retired and are looking for a fun way to pass the time? If you enjoy cruising in style and buying a cool vehicle has been on your bucket list, now is the perfect time to buy that fun ride. If you need some ideas, here are three of them.


According to the Motorcycle Industry Council, 40% of motorcycle owners in the United States are between the ages of 51 to 69. Because of this, many retirement communities that are located near places that hold motorcycle rallies are encouraging these older motorcyclists to bring their bikes. While many retirees might picture themselves motoring around on scooters, there are other options available such as three-wheel motorcycles or cycles with sidecars that have a reduced risk to tip over. If you are a retiree who has always wanted a Harley, there are many new and used Harley motorcycles that will fit your needs.

New Car

If you have desired for a long time to own a new car but needed something you could actually afford, there are some great vehicles out there for retirees on a budget. One car in particular you may want to take a look at is the Chevrolet Impala. No longer the huge, gas guzzler it once used to be, this vehicle made the list for the 7 best cars for budget-minded retirees. The car was completely redesigned in 2014 as a full-size sedan and has the horsepower and the speed to make it a fun car to drive. Other vehicles that made the list include the following:

  • KIA Optima LX
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • Ford Fusion Hybrid SE

Motor Home

It might sound cliché to buy a motor home upon retirement, but it is a popular thing that many retirees do. While many retirees buy a motor home as a way to travel across the country, some choose to sell their homes and actually take up residence in one. In fact, an estimated 750,000 to one million retirees make their motor home their real home. Today's motor homes have all the necessities of a house which include facilities for cooking, eating, sleeping and going to the bathroom. They also provide a great way to do some serious sightseeing and offer a fun way to bond with fellow retirees who also own motor homes.

Whether it's a new car, a motorcycle, or a motor home you want to purchase as a way to enjoy your retirement years, all three offer a fun ride with plenty of new adventures.
