Well worth the watch. That little "op-doc" had me grinning ear-to-ear from beginning to end. People sometimes ask me why do I do it? Why do I cast aside all good reason and common sense and continue to ride a bike into my middle age?

Why indeed. This old coot nails it.

Merged the three threads on this cool video.

I hope to be doing this when I'm that old, if I make it that far.

“We are turning into a nation of whimpering slaves to Fear—fear of war, fear of poverty, fear of random terrorism, fear of getting down-sized or fired because of the plunging economy, fear of getting evicted for bad debts or suddenly getting locked up in a military detention camp on vague charges of being a Terrorist sympathizer.” —”Extreme Behavior in Aspen,” February 3, 2003

Everything happens for a reason, but sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions.
