I was expecting a punchline along the lines of " He completed the ride of 72 meters in 12 minutes.

"Fire all of your guns at once and explode into space"

Remember, when using any forum, that owning a keyboard and having an internet
connection does not make anyone an expert.

Last year we had a 94 year old woman complete the Ironman Triathlon in time to register at the finishing gates.

'RIDE TO BE SEEN'

Most common quote from a cager after killing a motorcyclist is?

"I never saw him".

I'm glad when I can get up in the morning and put my pants on without falling over, that's a great day. Anything over that, how do you say, "gravy", as long as I'm still breathing that is.

I like my Trike....also have a 2008 Honda VXT1300
also have a 2003 Honda GL 1800
also had a 1987 Honda Gl 1200
also had a 1986 Honda Sei1200

Here's the oldest Rainier climber I've been able to find so far, from a 2006 article on a Mt. Rainier website:

"So, what will YOU be doing at age 83? If you're Bill Painter, you're still climbing Mount Rainier. Mr. Painter of Richland, WA successfully ascended the Kautz Glacier route this weekend with his family and friends.

He described the climb as his "most technical so far," but when I asked how he was feeling afterward, Bill's response was, "I feel fine today, but I sunburnt my lip a little." For training, Bill (a self described "family man") rides his bike at least 100 miles each week and regularly hikes a local hill called Badger Mountain... Actually, he makes that hike quite a bit... 1,502 times to be exact. But most of all, he credits his fitness to a life of hard work. Congratulations, Bill Painter!"

Heck, I'm a youngster compared to that guy! And I have a very similar training regimen (except for a lifetime of hard work, I've always been successful at avoiding hard work!)..... "Use it or lose it, baby!" Here's a picture below of the old boy himself....orange helmet, and then me in a black hat! I think I'm much tougher looking, huh?
