    You just did.

    On edit: Maybe the reason Pcad is feeling old is that he just had his first prostrate exam.

    Who are you, stranger? And why do you evoke such strong reactions from my brethren? (I had to Google HTFU. Whoa!)

    I believe the OP is explaining that even though he is over 50, he nevertheless is too cool for the 50+ forum. I think we can all agree on that.

    Pcaddy is a denizen of the road forum where he is both infamous and famous, misunderstood and revered.
    His on-screen personna can freak out those without an appreciation of sarcasm.
    He is a road racer who rides over 10,000 miles per year with a bad back.
    One of his favorite things is to make some inflammitory statement and watch the BF "train wrecks".
    Despite my fredishness, he has always been cool to me. Maybe it's because I'm older.

    I think he is refusing to give in to the fact that he is over 50.

    Perhaps he could make his statement through silent interpretative dance.

    I think this is some kind of prisoner exchange.

    I'm not quite yet 50+ (48 and still spinning) but I still lurk here. I guess maybe I should HTFU and get older?

    Welcome to my world. My racing age is 54. I hate that I have to say that and I'm not there yet.

    Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

    HTFU, indeed. This aging stuff's certainly not for wussies. But it certainly beats the *&%@ out of the alternative.

    May I disagree, a 51 year old who behaves as a brash younger person is still 51 years foolish. Not particularly becoming.

    He is a media star now with the RBA "Why I ride" in this month's issue. His press agent told him to get out and get the hoi poloi stirred up so the papparazzi would get him some free press.

    Racing age? Is this a new measurement of time? Is it analogous to dog years?

    The very fact that you took the time to post in the 50+ forum says it all.

    You are scared s***less, and don't know how to handle the big 5 - 0!

    We understand and offer our support. Are you aware of our 12 step 50+ program?

    ("My name is patentcad, I am scared to death of over 50")

    And you need to change the thread title to

    "Friggin ONCE"

    Racing age is your age at the end of the year. If you're turning 51 in December your age is 51 the whole year for purposes of registration, age brackets, etc.
