I think its best to quit now before all the guys who are already living off their 401K come down hard on me. Though the second I can scoop up some new tires for my action machine, I'm gonna be there for one of these group rides. only way to see who drags who outta the woods is to ride and find out!

A 650 in Croom? What could possibly go wrong! If you have the stamina to keep up with these old farts in Croom on that big a bike (esp in this heat) then you are a rockstar sir.

Dont worry about these guys Sub. Everyone I have ridden with on the forum is very capable and in good shape. Yeah, most of us here seem to be mid-lifers, but old = tough.

I'm just an old 'C' rider but this might be fun to watch!
I might have to load up the helmet camera and see if I can keep up with the fast guys.....at least for a little while.

(I'll put the backpack camera on for you too Jerry.......)

You dont quit riding when you get old, you get old when you quit riding.
I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms
