The worst things about getting old are grief and having regrets. There are so many things I could have done better, if I hadn't had other priorities. When you are old, you gain more perspective about what is important.

So what advice would you give to your younger self?

All of my old riding buddies, the ones I really cared about are gone from the earth. I miss the hell out of them every day. It's the curse of being the kid in the group.

I been lucky all of my friends I grew up with and riding motorcycles are still alive a few no longer riding but still here, lost a few school mates who got into bikes and got killed on them not long after, young inexperience, let see how fast it can go deaths, but have lost a few mate's over the years but not from motorcycles, cancer or bad habits of heavy drinking and one motorcycle mate die at home from heart attack and he was a wards man at the our major heart hospital, he didn't take notice of the signs of a heart attack and died alone, and this year have lost two great mates I have worked with, working at the same place for 31 years although we all took a redundancy 9 years ago, Barry only die 2 weeks ago, he was our maintenance electrician and I will always remember him every time I turn on the lights at home as he rewired my old house and wired up my new shed back in 91, we all worked in maintenance at a TAFE college and we were a close group of friends, it's always sad when we lose a close friend but it's all part of life, I never think about death, but we are here for a short time and when our number is up we have no say in it, but I wouldn't change a thing in how I lived my life and motorcycles have been my life.
