Re: Must see - Live to ride!

I already had my biker buddy email me that link this morning. It must be going around the biker lists. In some ways, my upcoming cross country trip is for the same reasons. My riding buddy is dealing with some serious medical issues and I've been taking handfuls of pills for years.

Re: Must see - Live to ride!

Very cool video. We have a member of my club who was still riding at 91, the only thing that stopped him was a stroke a couple of months ago. He always said that riding kept him young, and his 1994 K75RT has almost 250,000 miles on it to prove it. He also just paid his club dues for this year, so he's planning to ride with us again. I will have to show him this video.

Great ad... even if it is for a bank!

that's pretty much along the lines of why they created the Ulysses club in Oz

Re: Must see - Live to ride!

Really Nice video....It's been nice to get copies from friends who are thinking of me.

I think that many members of this forum already subscribe to not waiting! Many take the long rides with friends now. I've got skydiving buddies up to the age of 80 who say that it's skydiving that keeps them young. A retired SEAL will be making his 4,000th jump in March on his 80th birthday.

Life is way too short and since none of us are getting outa hear alive, now is the time. Don't wait to do the things you want to do someday....
