    Does anyone else think that Paul guy looks a little like an old Hellsickle? I mean, Hellsickle's kinda old right now, but that guy looks like Jeff a few more years down the road. Now obviously the Paul guy rides better than Jeff, but I can see a physical resemblance.:lol3

    Chris, it's a shame that Ev looks older than Paul but is 10 years younger. The miles were harder on Ev, I guess.:D

    Great film!

    It makes me want to get into better shape- a treadmill has been on the wish list for a while now.

    Riding high elevations here in the Rockies was what made me quit smoking (and Geeks "You look whipped, Hondo" remark atop Georgia Pass).

    Riding still makes me feel young.

    A friend of mine used to ride with those guys. They are riding buddies of his dad. His dad has a current 300 XC-W with E-start. He's in his 70s and bemoaning that he finally has the perfect motorcycle and won't be able to ride much longer. That story prompted me to get the 300 and 990 this year. Enjoy these things while you are able. Work hard to make it possible to ride longer.

    Very cool. Thanks for posting it.

    We were riding a trail in Taylor Park last summer and came upon a group of riders that included some older guys. One of em had just celebrated his 70th birthday a couple days before. He was still out there havin a blast. Not quite as fast, but havin fun. Was great to see. Gives me hope.

    Awesome video, thanks for sharing! Having lost friends both on the trail, track and hospital bed, I must agree with the assessment that to check-out on the track or trail is preferable!

    Really? What size are your boots? When are we going riding? :deal

    Btw, I agree with you. It might be hard on your buddies, but beats wastinv away in a hospital.
