Since most on this forum are old/old farts or act old, as old fart who has been riding everyday since 1955 would like to pass on some tips I've learned---I will be 80 in May.

1.  You are only as old as you  feel.  I have lived thru 20 years of military/stroke and heart attack/chemical exposure and still feel fine because I want to.

2. Aging eyes---get them fixed. I had  surgery a couple of years ago when I did not know I needed it---restored vision to 20/20...I did not take the more expensive option of using no reading glasses. I should have.

3. Never trust Doctors in US--US ranks 36th in the world, TN 46th in US=really not great.   I get pills from only one Internal Medicine DR, and then another Dr at the VA checks his works---seems to work.   Over 75 in TN everybody wants to give you pills...people do not live very long here.

4.  Riding and peeing often--Cialis seems to fix that.

5.  For me good day of 8-10 hours riding, get tired---I can sleep all nite without getting up.  This does not happen at home.

6. Good riding/rain clothes/warm do wonders.

7. proper boots(lace on safest) rubber boots for rain work and of course good rubber soles that do not slip when you put your foot/feet down.

8. practice your riding skills take a course if you can....learning how to do it right.


Never done it before (long trips) etc just do it---can be fun!
I fall to sleep just sitting at home

It should stop you from accidentally rolling out of bed too! Smile

Good advice, John. Especially about the doctors. Big Pharmacy loves to sell us pills. I refuse to take most of them... And they push our doctors to give us more pills, sigh. I don't use cialis but then I have noticed that on a long scooter ride I do not need to pee near as often as in a cage...
