    So yesterday, TWiumph and I took our new-to-us T-Dubs along a forest service road, when we came upon a whitewater creek about 2 foot deep, 15 feet across. We revved the engines and dived in, so to speak, and arrived at the other side, intact, upright, running, but absolutely soaked from the waist down with water gushing from our boots.



    I forgot to mention that both TWiumph and I are well into geezerhood, mid-60s.



    We stood there laughing at our sorry state, remembering the adage that "Inside every old man is still a boy wondering WTF happened".



    Enjoy yourself.

    It's later than you think.

    You guys sound like my Dad (he is 63) whom I go riding with a lot. I'll whip out my camera to take a photograph or a quick video and have it put away while he is trying to figure out how to turn his camera on! Although you don't have any pictures, you'll always have the memories.

    "Geezerhood", I love it and can see it coming!
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    "Geezerhood", I'm starting to resemble that remark.

    In 4 more days, I'm on Medicare.



    Then I can start jumping these creeks on the T-Dub.
