First topic message reminder :

WHEELIE

At the risk of coming across as an old fart i get really upset when i see headlines like this - I'd love to be able to pull a wheelie but i'm afraid i am of the opinion that the public road is no place to do it. A real waste of a life, a family left grieving, other road users put at risk traumatised, not to mention the healthcare professionals and police that have to not only literally pick up the pieces but also break the news to family and fuel for the fire for those that think this is how all bikers behave and for what purpose :( such a tragic loss of life that needn't have happened.

Simply not true, your reflexes, eyesight, mental agility, etc all deteriorate as we get older. The only saving grace is many older bikers are indeed wiser and more able to anticipate conditions etc and so the need for sharpness is lessened slightly but there is still a tipping point.

The argument is the older you are and the longer you have ridden the better equipped you should be to deal with what the road throws at you. (unless a brainless idiot in a car is what's thrown at you Smile )

Stay safe out there everyone, especially if you must commute in this inclement weather, or you're stupid enough to go out in it by choice like me!!

I know you were Tom, I wasn't having a go mate, just saying all are not equal, if only, I'm touching 40 and wish I was your age and that's not a massive difference, I'm sure you'd like to be 18 again mate.

Unfortunately we all have to get older, doesn't mean we can't enjoy ourselves with it Smile
