I love that quote that I'll paraphrase - Don't live the same year over and over 75 times and call it a life. I'm personally in a race to do the things I want to do before I run out of health to do them. At a relatively healthy 61 years old, I figure I've got, if I'm lucky, maybe 10 - 12 more years of risking life and limb for fun. I'm already way more cautious than I would have been just 5 or 10 years ago. My days of big hits on a dirt bike are in the past and if I'm realistic, there's probably not a lot of defying gravity in my future on the trials bike. But I know a lot of guys my age that are selling the bike and spending more time with the crossword puzzle than leaning in to something challenging. I just think that's a sure way to go all too soon.

I know this is preaching to the choir here and I get I lot of encouragement to go out have some fun doing something new and challenging to me. Thank you!

Yeah, he might be. I'm originally from NZ. You'd think I would know
