Officially old?

Post by herman » Thu Apr 18, 2019 5:53 pm

So the exc has gone in favour of a TTr, a 47hp twin has captured my full attention and now the MX5 2l sport is going and what have we bought? a bloody Volvo and an auto at that! Is there such a thing as an inverse mid life crisis where you go all sensible , start washing the car on Sunday and wearing driving gloves?
The secret of a long life is knowing when its time to go.

If it's any consolation, the Royal Enfield Interceptor was the best-selling bike in the 450 - 650 segment last month.

I rode it and it make me feel like I was in my 20s again...mainly because it was like the kind of bikes I rode in my 20s!

You know you're old when having a good shit and nice cuppa are the highlights of your day.

You know you're old when you cramps in your hand scrolling down to find your year of birth.
