Aging is an interesting topic.
Aging's just another word for nothing left to lose.

But when I look in the mirror, I still see a kid...

When I look in the mirror, I say, "Who is that old guy?"

There's no payoff being elderly-centric.

I wish more women would ride. Shoganai is the only woman I can remember seeing around Motobrick. She was a rider.

Well what do you expect?  Only old farts ride motorcycles anymore.

I've run into a few women who ride but not often.  Rachel Kim, author of the blog Fuzzygalore, just posted a piece on women riders called 7 Badass Motorcycle Women on Instagram.  https://www.fuzzygalore.com/2019/08/7-badass-motorcycle-women-on-instagram/

Took my first long ride on the K75 this morning.  10 hours in the saddle.  Interesting ride.  Motorcycle performed flawlessly.  Didn't plan or prepare for rain.  Riding in a summer mesh jacket over a t-shirt -- what was I thinking when I left the house and it was 60F.  Whoever says the gas tank on the K75 gets hot doesn't know jack.  I kept waiting and waiting to get warm...

Here's a shot early in the ride.  My friend Paul is on his K1300.  Powerlines were low and you could hear the electricity crackling.

Quezzie sure gets around.  I think she's riding her Vespa GTS250 in Portugal now.
