"I guess I belong in this group. I went to change the oil in my KTM 250XC the week before the Alligator enduro a few weeks back. I had done most all the other maintenance things. Lay my bike over and remove filler and drain plug. Out come beautiful clean gold oil into the drain pan. Guess I forgot i had changed it already. This getting old thing is weird"

Yep. Run it thru an old pair of your wife's hose and pour it back in. That is one of the reasons I keep my drain container sparkling clean.

"You know what I really hate?.

When talking to people my age (51) who don't ride ask me Aren't you afraid of getting hurt? Your too old to ride! Or isn't it time to grow up?..

Uugggh! Really? This what keeps me young and in shape! I don't sit on the couch on sundays with a bowl of chips and a 12 pack yelling at the t.v!"

Copied but I have heard the same things, sometimes wonder myself, lol! But for whatever reason this is who I am and what I do. I'll do it as long as I can!!

I went to a high school reunion several years back and while standing around talking I was asked if I was still riding. I said "Oh Yea". I got a "man those things are dangerous". I replied "and how many surgeries did you have on your knee from football Bob? And Both my knees are still bending the way the good Lord intended".
