    I was too old for MX before I hit 30 - possibly before I hit 25.

    I didn't have to, I've said all along it was fatal.
    The bottom end seized.
    Waiting on my winnings, guessing that was another internet fable.

    The last time a Navined (or is it still Daved?) a tree was riding MX around a local tank track and the last time I ever did that.

    I must have been 25 because I replaced the destroyed bike with an 86 XT350 in late 85. The smashed bike is still in boxes in my garage attic.

    I have a business idea.
    There are YouTube's for learning riding skills. All the different types of riding are covered. Books, mags, how too's, all directed at able bodies.
    My idea is adapted riding skills you tube, and articles.
    Weak hands, bad back, bad knees. Arthritis, stiff /fused joints. One eye, one horned flying purple people eater.

    I've been in discussions with my 2 business partners lately. We determined it was time for us all to let each other know what our retirement dates are going to be.

    So I came up with mine after giving it a lot of thought and debating pros/cons.

    Im calling it quits on 12/31/2021. I'm ready.:beer

    I will be a year ahead of you. I will sell my stock back and give up full time work and management at the end of this year. I may work part time as a consultant to not freak out over no paycheck for a couple of years. At least until I can start getting some of my SS money back. I have worked since I turned 14.

    I'm ready to not work. Or to work at what I like: fishing, riding, building shit and fucking off with no guilt.

    Get a Dango mount. That's what Barry from Cross Training Enduro uses.


    Here's some trivia: it was our friend Magnus (Tiger Tanker) who introduced Barry to the Dango mount 20200124_205305.jpg
