I just passed the 65-year mark, and this is starting to sound a little less funny...

16 years since I my 65th birthday, happened during the 2006 BSA US International Brimfield Mass.
I can and do laugh at the antics of the youngsters in cartoons such as this laughing beerchug

I too have been 65 for 16 years BeezaBryan. We didn't think much about the older guys in our younger years as a few of the guys were in late 80's and even one I remember riding in his early 90's. The one who was riding in his 90's rode out with me to the hospital on the first day of a two day endurance trial in about 1967 when I broke some bones in a foot at the top of a climb. I think he was 65ish at the time and staying with the pack on a very challenging event called the Terra Nova. Not sure how much more riding I have left in me as there are more tasks to get done every day but it's not over yet.

Cheers, Wilf

My brain is still 23. Think the same thoughts, look at the same women, then realize the other working parts have aged beyond that. It’s a drag.

Well heck BezzaBryan & Wilf, you've both got about seven years on me...

Guess I'll have to stop saying things like:" If I had known I'd live THIS LONG, I'd have taken better care of myself"....

Thanks for being such a great source of inspiration for the rest of us youngsters!

I thought that those were already options on Gold Wings.
I'm only 65. When I start posting about how to add an electric leg to my bikes I'm done.

I read somewhere that 80 is the new 60.

Age is just in the mind.

Is anyone else in the same boat, and if so what do you take and does it work?

Sammy, I had something similar a few years ago, and would consume lots of Ibuprofen before, during, and after rides. Then I read about "nerve-gliding exercises" to reduce carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel problems due to ulnar nerve entrapment. Drug-free now. Also doing several exercises and stretches daily that I learned from Bob and Brad, "the most famous physical therapists on the Internet."

My experience, anyway. Hope that helps ...
