Re: Is 50 years old too old for a Honda CBR?

Considering that there are people in their twenties that can't run,do situps, or push ups to save their life, I think if he rides it with no problems then more power to him.

Bevo can ride faster than the wind, and actually parts it.

Is he too old for that hardcore of a bike or should he be considering an FJR or something similar in his sunset years? I guess he gets around ok on it but looks a little funny when you see his knee high socks at stop lights with the velcro strap tennis shoes.
I know someone who needs a quick shifter so he can almost ride slow, thinks you're supposed to slide into intersections like it's home plate, has either really short legs for his body or just ill fitting leathers where the knees hang over the tops of his boots and the seat bags so badly it looks like he took a 10 lbs in them. Can anyone help this old man?

You know you're old when your knee sliders are actually shin sliders

If it wasn't for your boots they'd be ankle sliders

Dang right, you whipper snappers are showing your lack of respect! Why I was riding wheelies when your parents were in elementary school.
Sure, the bikes weighed 800lbs and the tires were made out of wood but we could ride'em better than your "rice rockets"!

Remember the older you get the faster you were, lol

The last one didn't waste time with the lecture.......just told me I should have let the other guy win and wrote me the ticket.

Let the youngster on a 600 WIN? Young man with the 600 shouldn't be racing a ZX10.
