Black screen with a circulating white dot. Basic, but kinda cool.

Thanks for sharing. What a great video. I'd much rather live a full life and not reach my full life expectancy than take the safe route and live forever in boredom.

Cheers!

Very cool video! Nice to think that riding can keep you young in a variety of ways.

DANGIT! WARN ME that I'm going to need a hanky handy!

Only way that would be better, were if they rode bicycles!

10 Wheels, I saw this post a while back and was moved by it. I did not respond then because I did not know what I could add. I'm getting to be a pretty old guy of 73 y.o. and my general conclusion from my perspective is to do as much as you can as long as you can. Thanks for the post.

I rode motorcycles for 28 years.....They are fun.

June 9th my friend Bill rode 100 miles with me on The Indy Speedway 500 Track.
He had so much fun he did a extra 2.5 mile Victory Lap.

Bill is 79 years old. The eldest ride to complete 100 miles on the track.

Saw that a while back. Nice story. Too bad the bank that sponsored this ad put their retirements into junk based mortgage derivatives and they lost everything they had accumulated over their lifetimes.
