This is just a place holder for when I post here in just under 14 years.

Enjoy the wait!

So 65+----That means you were born before 43 and the yanks joined the war. So if you can remember the war- your in.


That puts me out- I can't remember yesterday.

I thought 65 yo were baby boomers! -- ok, if 1945 is the limit, it must be 63 yo.

I'll go to lurk mode, now. Have fun it your new playground, big kids!

Well, should we make this a "sticky?" A sort of sub-forum of 50+?

Seems like we have about 10 of us 65+'rs responding (or so) - and a whole lot of 65-'rs.

Actually, I think the definition of baby boomers is people born between '46 and '64.

Hey, it's exactly like when the little kids want to ride in the back of my school bus, I tell them "Your day will come."

Is this the grown ups clubhouse?

Finally, we can get away from those dang kids and all their monkeyshines. You ever see how they act, some of 'em? Disgraceful, I tell you, downright disgraceful. And that music...ever hear that music they play? Gives me a headache whenever I hear it. They oughta outlaw it, it ain't fit for decent folks.

Now maybe we can get some good music around here, maybe some Perry Como or some Lawrence Welk...some REAL music, for a change.

This 65+ thread seems to have died a natural death - err - perhaps those are the wrong words!

My wife is ready for a 70+ thread, but it will take me about 1.5 years.

Ok if no other qualifications I at least meet the age at 66 LOL Not only that just starting out bike riding also. Already a slight case of road rash thinking I was still 15 on a bike.

If you old guys only post here, then we young guys won't be able to benefit from your "wisdom" without lurking, and that seems so dishonest, somehow.

By now we should all know how this works: If you start a thread that's only for 65+, you will have all the young whipper-snappers posting. We're old enough to be contrarians, after all...

As far as wisdom and being an Old fart. When it comes to anything pertaining to Bike riding I defer to the younger generation for help and knowledge.
