A little off bike topic, but still two wheels..
I just happened to be browsing on Youtube,and came across a vid of me when I was 65 years old, and chasing a 20 year old in the twistees. I recall this one real good, because the guy thought he was going to leave the old man, and when he could not, he figured he would lean over and touched the ground, I did the same..
One could always tell the old man was coming, because of the distinct sound of my RC51 with Sato pipes, red scarf, and if one look closely, you could see "over 60 , back off" on my jacket.. The police also knew my bike and my name!!
Another one, from my files. This young man was a little older than the one on youtube, he happened to be 21 years old.
I was kicking 3 times their age plus!!
BTW, I was just running guts alone, no skills riding skills whatsoever. I didn't get riding skills until I got to the racetrack. After those rides, and peeps were getting killed on that mountain, the youngsters took the old man to the race track. That is where I got fast, and learn some real skills..I found out later that, I was lucky on those mountain rides. Too many cars, guard rails, and a lot of egos.
But, those vids bought back some sweet memories..
