Not that old yet, but hope to be riding at that age.
I can't seem to win the lottery. I think I have used up all of my good luck riding motorcycles.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty and well preserved piece, but to skid across the line broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, leaking oil, shouting GERONIMO

Good times made better with friends and motorcycles. 1990 my friend Bear on the old iron head 1979 sportster and me on the 84 long softail.My friend Jim is taking the pic and that's his big 1979 shovel King of The Road dresser. We were ready to get away fast as it was a no no to stop and take a pic with the sign. 11 day trip with all camp.As usual I was the old man at 44! Image

:funnylast: Sadly though,...you went back to posting more of your same-old political stuff.

Seems there is little hope for you. :lmao:

I was just looking up a ride for next summer, King's Canyon scenic by-way. Appears to be about 2500 miles to get there, so maybe a 6-7k ride total?
Something to do and somewhere to see...

Do it, man. Life is short. Ride on.

A very special “something” and “somewhere”, perhaps you can organize a run and gathering!

We just rode Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Park last month. Lots of twisties and switchbacks as well as some of the best scenery available.
You may as well hit Yosemite and Lake Tahoe while you are out there. Lassen is also a good ride.
Kings Canyon stops at Roads End, so you must turn around and run it again. :cheers: [emoji106]
