    Those two guys in the pic are 76 and 72 still riding trails, doing it since the 70’s. Last year we did NMBDR and camped out a couple of nights. I’m the kid at 52. Oh the stories they can tell! Lol

    74 and still riding in the dirt, this picture was taken in North West Arkansas this past weekend, the picture don't really show how steep and rocky that hill really was. I rode two days about 150 each day in the kind of terrain shown in the photo.

    Oh man ... you are an old fart 'cause he was talking about your "friends" and not your friends.
    Unless of course, I'm wrong and that would make both of you old farts.
