40 years ago maybe..
A number of years back I spent the day with Travis Pastrana, (right after his jump into the San Fransisco Bay in the X-Games). He offered me a ride on his bike at his private track in the Annapolis area. The 14 year old bike rider in me said yes! (that was the age when I got my first bike which I hid from my parents for 2 years), but the smarter 50+ year old said know your limits. I am in awe of what some of these guys do on their bikes, but now suffering arthritis
in one of my knees, I can't imagine what these guys will suffer with when they get to my age.
Talking to the rider who I put the camera on and listening to the injuries he has already had, I can't imagine life later on for him. Just like an NFL vet I would guess.
