Gettin old

well, i'm siiting here about to turn OLDER, just put the kids (3) to bed and came out here to my garage and popped a couple of beers. Didn't ever think turning 40 (yes 40) would bother me but i think it is - just a little. I only have 10 more years before I have to become responsible.

So at 50 is when I'm supposed to become responsible and stop acting like I'm 18? SWEET!!!!

Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

I thought turning 40 would bother me but I can't wait to turn 70 so I can make attending trackdays across the country my full time job. Five to six bikes in the trailer ready to roll. I'll even show the new slow guys the fast lines.

Just like Tom (Greyhound on rc51.org)! Actually I think he is 72.


Hang in there Wedge, at 41, 50 seems a long way away!

Look at it this way. You're only 10 years away from a colonoscopy, and 20 years away from retiring, and applying for Medicare and AARP. Wait, i think i just made you feel worse.
