Good stuff, too bad they didn't have any actual race footage.

Very cool! A lot of good advice from her.
Don't ever grow up! Make the most of your life! Don't look back and say i wish I'd done that!

She's downright inspirational!

Great advice, she seems like a woman I'd want to meet on a ride one day!

Re: Charles Schwab Motorcycle Ad

Thanks for sharing that video, it made my Friday.

As I approach 62 in December I appreciate when I meet and see folks like her who inspire me recenter and refocus my life. My dad was "retired" when he was 58 from the only job he had in his entire life and went into a severe depression because he didn't know what to do and didn't have any real hobbies. At 86 I get the feeling he is still lost because he never figured out how not to take life so seriously.

I never want to grow up.
I never want to regret anything about how I lived my life.
I want to have fun and see where the next XX years take me.

Re: Charles Schwab Motorcycle Ad

Reminds me again of ole G.K. Chesterton's quote that "Men grow elderly much more by choice than by chance. And, there really is very little actual chance in this world."

Great ad. Thanks!
