Yesterday i went to a fall Chili/ sit around the campfire, at a ridin buddies daughter's house. It was my buddies wife's 64 birthday.
Had a good time.

Well i am 59 yrs old myself.
As I rode up on the Swing in the back 40. The kids (7 of them) were doing flattrack laps. All of them do this as amatuers and one just turned professional. I was talking to the daughter and she said go out and take a lap with the kids, they will think it's cool.

DUH!!!!! I must have left my brain at home.

I waited until they all went by and jumped in at the back of the pack. I did three laps and was pasted by all the kids.
The Swing did not fall over, I did not crash and none of the kids ran into me,

The Swing did fine in the straights, but kept loosing traction in the corners. I did not want to put it into a full on power slide in tennis shoes on my bad knee.
Coming out of the corner the Swing would rooster tail until shut down at the next turn.
Considering I havent been off road in 30 yrs , And road semi hard, (for a crippled old guy) I was impressed.
Finally , common sense took hold and I quite after 3 laps.

today my Knee hurts .... Embarassed

Sometimes the old dog just wants to run with the pack . Smile

MaxB,
Just keep the Advil flowing, Mother Nature is just reminding you that your body is not as young as your brain thinks it is. It is part of that "Growing Old Gracefully" crap! I have yet to find anything graceful about growing old.
I hope your aches and swelling disipate quickly.

Ride safe!
Wes

Somehow I know what you mean Max, I am just waiting for a chance to try stupid too. I know I will probably also regret it... for a couple of seconds anyway

You wouldn't by any chance have video of that would you?
That would go viral in the Silverwing community.

I am not sure there are any photos of it. If I had crashed I can guarantee you there would have been.
