I just got a new daytona. I'm 65, 66 in two weeks. Started street riding in '99. It's a hoot! The daytona, that is.

I'd ask mine, but she just went out riding on her way to her yoga class while I'm stuck finishing up a deadline.



When she gets back from her ride I'll ask if she agrees with your wife...

LOL You obviously had a prebride checklist going didn't you. i..e Does she ride? Does she ***** about your riding? You are a lucky/smart man...

Re: HEY, ASHLEY
 
Instead of just tossing in a link to a stupid fluff article like this, why not write about a REAL motorcyclist who is still riding, and riding, and riding, at an advanced age?



Ardys Kellerman has completed the Iron Butt Rally four times, and in each of those she had to ride 1,000 miles a day for 11 days in a row. She has also covered the lower 48 states and Alaska in a 10-day ride.



And Ardys Kellerman is 71 years old and a great-grandmother. She's the real deal, not some novelty. She's been riding for 35 years and is on her eighth motorcycle.



Hey Ashley, how about an article about a WOMAN motorcyclist for a change?

...especially too old to be involved with someone who thinks you're too old to be riding a motorcycle.

Dear Ashley, if you're still reading this far down.



Don't pay attention to these goons. I was at a MSF BRC training class last month and about 25% of the class were women. In the 12-member range class the following day there were four women or should have been. One didn't show up because she was afraid to do the actual riding of the motorcycle. She showed up for the classroom instruction all three days. One dropped her bike and immediately quit. The other two passed the course. Not a good showing by the female contingent and these women were less than 40 years old.



If there was a motorcycle riding class held only for 91-year-old females guess how many would even be able to show up!!
