    Old age ain't so bad considering the alternatives!

    That was inspirational. Guess we all should have a few years left in us yet.
    The quotes on aging were as entertaining as the gentle flowing single track.

    Remember, if you get excited enough you can stretch those wrinkles out just like a young man...

    Neighbor guy, Don would ride his Goldwing all day. Starting a 5-6 am til almost dark. Would never pull over except to get gas and pee. He was 82 and could out walk most people half his age. Fricken cancer took him way to early.

    So enjoy today you might have another tomorrow.

    Thank you for posting that video JersyJeeper! It would seem this is proof most of us still got it if we're willing to give 'er a go!

    I actually live about 110 miles from Calabogie, Ontario and although I have never ridden my bike there I have done some ATV'ing on my 850 Polaris which I have since sold to my son in law and the time spent there was excellent! There is also a fairly new car race track there that I did several HPDE courses on in my '06 Corvette and always had a blast with that as well, sadly do to the downturn in the economy I no longer have the Vette either. But I am definitely going to make plans to get out and ride my T-Dub there this summer!

    You're only as old as you feel.
    I'm 75 now and many mornings I feel pretty old.

    What wrinkle location are you speaking of? I know of one place if the wrinkles get a bit disturbed it slows me down that's for sure. ...but I'm guessing your speaking of facial wrinkles haha.

    I've seen several TW riders older than me who can also out ride me. Of course, I ain't that good but they are still darn good riders.

    Good little video.
