All I can say is after maybe 8 or so years from my last motorcycle ride I drove nearly 800 miles RT (google maps added the extra 100 or so ) to pick up a used TW200 in Springfield MO.
Once I got it off the carrier and levers and mirrors adjusted I took a couple of very short try it out runs before taking it up and down the street a couple times. Surprising after all those years I still remembered how to shift gears and use the brakes. Looking forward to some dirt roads and small hills next. BTW I am well past the retirement age.
