Good story. I have also been thinking about that aging thing a bit lately, since I am sneaking up on 40 way too fast. But hey, one of the guys I ride with is 74, and it was only recently that he traded in his ATK406 for an XR400. So I figure I have plenty more good riding years left.

Really, I don't feel like there is anything that my age prevents me from doing...well, there are a few things I can't do twice in the same day but that's a different story...

It's just that it seems all of a sudden I keep hearing that horrible phrase..SOMEONE YOUR AGE...

Sticks and stones right?

I guess there is nothing we can do about it, so we may as well smile as we go along for the ride

Woody, I had a HE!L of a time with 30 as well, but now I will be 40 in a few months and it does not bother me a bit......... but then again, maybe it's because I never had a bike when I was 30 and thought I was to old to return to the sport.

Just 31?

Jonathan,
What in the dickens are you whinning about at 31: . I am going to get Howard, Vet, Oldmxracer, Mainjet and the other members of our geezer club and come after your young butt . Man you and Wheaty ought to be waxing us old guys regularly.

I guess the t-shirt saying goes best here: Youth and talent are no match for age and treachery.

Of course some of my harder edged old compatriots will use the ruder : To be old and wise one must first be young and stupid. (I personally disagree, I still manage to do lots of stupid things and I am definately getting old.)

And Jonathan, I have had a "Fine Looking Young Woman" do a medical procedure on me and it does not help one bit. Docs is Docs and Nurses is Nurses. (I am eternally indebted to every doctor and nurse that has seen me through these past surgeries and calamities)

Y'all ride safe and roost someone this Weekend!!!!.

In geezerdom we trust,
Bill

I like the t-shirt...... "You don't get to old to ride.... you get old if you don't ride"

I dont know Florida, I had one exam,,lets just say for here that it was about as embarassing as anything can get. (think unmanned sub), anyway, this young lady is talking to my doctor about shooting trap the same time she is collecting samples during a biopsie. I think if I were to encounter her on the street I would head to the other side.

Been there old friend!

OSSA,
I can relate to that one. I had a flight physical by a truly beautiful flight surgeon in the early 80's. Problem was she had long manicured finger nails (You see where this one is going?)

She did the usual questions, pokes and prods a doctor does. Even the "turn your head and cough" did not get to me: . Then she tells me to assume the position as she puts on another surgical glove and grabs the KY jelly. We all know what that means and sure enough she goes for it! I gasped and grunted at the pain. When I asked her to stop saying had she hit my tonsils with a finger nail she took umbrage. That remark got me in trouble, big time . Seems she had no sympathy for the male of the species and the need for a finger wave. I would rather have a colonoscopy that face her again.

Yeah I would definately cross the street if she was headed my way, just to avoid her checking my tonsils again. Man she had long fingers .

Bill

Default Old as dirt

Well I didn't feel old until I looked at your DOB and realized that I am older than you. The only thing that I can say is if you are older than 30 stretch your muscles before you ride. I snaped my achillies tendon last September and it still is not the same.

Bill, I got the shivers just reading that! TMI!!! TMI!!!

I'm 36 Wheaty. Happens to us all! Like others have said, you're only as young as you feel.

I still don't like to be called "Mr" by some kid though.

Hit 40 this past March.....had my physical two months ago....THAT...was not fun ...(if you know what I mean)

The doctor that did my physical asked what the big bruise on my left thigh was and I said "oh I was playing football in the front yard with my kids when......". Then she asked why my left ankle had a limited range of motion ....I said " I was playing football in the front yard with my kids when....". Then she asked how I broke my collarbone (which is obvious) and I said " well I was playing football in the front yard with my kids when....". She said " you guys think you can play football forever don't you?" and I said " YES ...we do ! "

LOL……………….
Have to tell you guys of the “Mr.” Evolution.
Some of you are whining about being called “Mr.”.
Well when you get to my age (Ya better still be riding) and someone calls you “Mr.”, it’s a compliment.
So hang around and someday you will like being called “Mr.”
Beats "Hey you".

Hey Bill, don't leave me out, I'll turn 60 5 days after GMBIV. and the comment about only being as old as you feel at the end of the day!!! Thats when I feel really old. Ya know when your arms are so tired you can't push the bike up into the back of the truck!
