Different demographics, same post, compare

My apologies for double posting my saga about eating dirt a few weeks ago. But I wanted to see the difference in the two demographics with the same post. Since there is a link to the other post in this over fifty forum, you can take a look too. I think this is why we have an over-fifty area set aside, because our experiences and our ways of looking at things are different than the younger folks. Any thoughts?

A&S, particularly the long running and long argued helmet thread, can be a little contentious at times. Still some nuggets of wisdom there if you sift through enough of the dirt. I usually don't post anything argumentative there and don't post in the helmet thread at all. Heck, I'm a new rider and I wear a helmet because I expect to hit the ground and my brain barely works now, don't need to injure any.
