Al he knew when to give up racing but he is still game enough to ride on the road, riding motorcycles keeps him feeling young at hart and I hope he is around for many more years of enjoying riding his collection of bikes, the same with me the day I can't ride will likely be the last day here lol.
Al,I would like to apologise on behalf of my generation. I think we have seen the best of the world and are moving on leaving a mess behind us. We copped to many restrictions without even a bleat. I would personally never ride a motorcycle without a crash helmet. In some American states helmets are not compulsory and I think that is probably a good thing. If you are not prepared to wear one, you probably deserve to die - but taking that risk is your CHOICE. Insurance is like any other form of gambling - the house always wins. But the requirement to have insurance is the greatest killer of motorcycle fun.
Old bike racers never die. . . . They just fade away. . . . . .(oh God! I hope there isn't even more to come)Al,
We are getting periodic angry posts - does the doctor keep changing your meds or are you finishing off the whiskey you got for Christmas?
Ride more, it’s good for the soul.
