sorry to hear about the down, sounds gnarly. i'd be interested in the 990 when you get some pics & price set.

when i broke my leg (after breaking the ankle a year earlier) it was time to quit skating, but a month after surgery i was back in the bowl just to prove that i could still do it. haven't skated since.

heal up man, maybe you will change your mind.

Ok, Dan lets talk

OK Dan, it's time for the dutch uncle, brother to brother talk, when I went down last year I had an epiphany of self actualization.

Simply put I'm NOT a young man anymore,I'm not as fast as I used to be, the ground hasn't gotten any softer, rocks hurt & big bore bikes are too much me to handle, but for me not to have a bike would be the same as a death certificate, I WILL RIDE till they put me in a body bag or a home,as long as I can swing a leg over there will be a bike under me, there's to much to see on the other side of the mountain or around the next curve, I can't give up now so I'll slow down smell the flowers take in sights & live in the moment.

So now lets get down to it, you & I are about the same age, I'm pushing 70, AZ Tom is pushing 73 & mefadv is up there too,& you,my friend are in good physical shape, still kickin it w/the young bucks, & still have a zest for life----YOU ain't dead yet, nor will you be anytime soon.

So lets give this some serious thought, Hows about you sell the widow maker, get healed up, and look into a smaller cc bike, 650 s seem to be the ideal in power & weight, I can see you on a BMW 700/800 GS with no problem, surely not the best bike in the world but does everything you ask of it from forest roads to tarmac

Guess the bottom line is I don't want to lose a ridden buddy who can dish it out & take it at the same time,plus there aren't many of us o'l farts out there any more & who else can I BS with Expo? Dammit, I just can't see you without a scooter.

Remember "OLD GUYS RULE!!"

I hate to see you hang it up, but taking the risk we all take is a personal decision. If you do get a Jeep, don't take it personal when I flip you off on the trail ;)

Bummer

Shame to see someone who enjoys riding with friends pack it in. I know from the many different types of riding I do that if it scares you to do it or your thinking about crashing it's time to pack it in... you do what is best for you mate as I would rather see you around the camp fire sometime than see you hurt.

Cheers

I agree with this. When I flipped the Jeep I sold it bought motorcycles. I just felt safer off road on two wheels. Then about 2 years later I bought another Jeep (actually a 4runner) because I missed it. However I no longer wheel with the die hard "lets see if I can climb that" crowd, any off camber steep hill scares me and I'm tired of the crowd who says "oh come on, you can do that". Simply exploring the back country is more my speed. That applies to either off roading with the wife and dogs, or motorcycling.
