Never To Old To Ride

Neighbour up the road on his daily walks on seeing my bike out the front of the house decided to purchase another bike after a 10 year lapse. It took a little time to bite the bullet and after 4 months of tormenting himself he called me and said hes going to take one for a test ride.Last week he picked up the bike and away we went for his first ride in many years. 80 YEARS OLD.and with a grin and a new lease on life it was so good to see .What an inspiration for me to ride till the end.Well a few weeks on and bike shop rings him and tells him you have lost your position an 82 year old just purcased a bike.And life goes on and on.
Cheers

My feet on the pegs and lots of time to go where the road leads.

However coined the Fraze "You are never to old" was maybe 20 years old you think?
Here lately I seem to find a lot of things that prove be just the opposite
