Fantastic! After major surgery 3 years ago the doc said "no more bull riding", so I sold my MC and I've regretted it ever since. I've pondered giving all my riding gear away to some young deserving rider many times but kinda glad I haven't. I just can't shake the desire to ride, so seriously considering my options for added protective gear and a trail bike for some fun, fitness, and sanity time.

It's all about riding safely if you are riding with a compromised body. My herniated disc won't allow me to walk through the grocery store without using the cart to lean on but I can ride safely if that's my priority and get some much needed exercise. Let the young kids and the fearless chase the speed. I've switch to trials tires in the rear too. Much better traction if you are taking your time and way better on rocks and roots.
