maybe, our mid-life crisis is just our "suppressed childhood" coming out and the bikes are a "therapy tool".... lol
if the Baja 1000 is a ultra-marathon, then hare scrambles are mini-marathons.
my buddy (also having a 2nd/3rd mid-life crisis) is considering a crf250x to scramble and enduro. the choice is mostly economically driven (neither of us can afford a newer KTM 200/300), he also has to buy trailer to haul bikes.
anyway, keep us posted on your bike choice and racing experience. it would be nice to have an "old farts with mid-life crisis racing scrambles/enduro" thread here.
