Doesn't sound unusual to me! Been to many a BMW Rally where the yougest rider is 16 and the oldest is in there upper 80's and even into their 90's....and they had to ride to the rallyto get the award...occasionally from half way acoss the country...and generally the last ones at the keg trying to get that last drop out (no I am not kidding). Hope to be one of them, in 40 or 50 years or so...
LOL mine too... me thinks we will have the last laugh....My Harley riding doctor says his unofficial survey says motorcycle riders are more healthy both physically and mentally.. He has a plaque in his office that says you never see a motorcycle parked outside a shrinks office....
Instead of just tossing in a link to a stupid fluff article like this, why not write about a REAL motorcyclist who is still riding, and riding, and riding, at an advanced age?
Ardys Kellerman has completed the Iron Butt Rally four times, and in each of those she had to ride 1,000 miles a day for 11 days in a row. She has also covered the lower 48 states and Alaska in a 10-day ride.
And Ardys Kellerman is 71 years old and a great-grandmother. She's the real deal, not some novelty. She's been riding for 35 years and is on her eighth motorcycle.
Hey Ashley, how about an article about a WOMAN motorcyclist for a change?
Dear Ashley, if you're still reading this far down.
Don't pay attention to these goons. I was at a MSF BRC training class last month and about 25% of the class were women. In the 12-member range class the following day there were four women or should have been. One didn't show up because she was afraid to do the actual riding of the motorcycle. She showed up for the classroom instruction all three days. One dropped her bike and immediately quit. The other two passed the course. Not a good showing by the female contingent and these women were less than 40 years old.
If there was a motorcycle riding class held only for 91-year-old females guess how many would even be able to show up!!
