What no first posts! Maybe it's the stigma of a scooter article. No Fear.

My congratulations to the aging "scooter trash". Bet you had fun.



Alas, at a mere age 69, I don't think I'd enjoy buzzing along at 45 mph. I much prefer to be overtaking the Peterbilts on one of my full size motorcycles (mostly a BMW, and a Ducati, also recently a 1970 Triumph T100C), not have them coming up fast in the rear view mirror. Maybe in 10 years I might feel different.

I dunno, the motorized bicycles in my garage get more use than the real motorcycles. Something about the pedals...

Re: Yes! The Bluehairs on the Blue Highways

You have to give old people credit. A lot of them DO accumulate some wisdom over the years. What better way to see the country than staying OFF THE INTERSTATE.

I would MUCH rather do 45 mph on a scenic backroad than drone along at 90 mph on a generic, soul-less interstate highway.

(Actually, I'd probably being going somewhere between 45 and 90 on that scenic backroad, but the point is the same: interstate sucks, backroad rules.)

There was a time when two-lane backroads were the ONLY roads and 45 mph was a reasonable clip for the smaller engines of the time. And I'll bet the riders loved the trip.

Just when I think I am about half-tough some group of oldsters on scooters goes and make me feel like a ninny - I always thought I would ride across the country on a Capt. America replica, but now I have no interest because my ass can't take it -
