Hope for us oldies
« on: 08.08. 2019 17:36 »
Took this photo of this guy at the Whitby traction rally last weekend he rode this velocette into the parade area stopped it then after the parade without any help and off the stand he kick started it which took him 3 kicks before it started then rode it around the parade ring then back to the display area. He is 90 years old so there is hope for us oldies.

G'day Bob.
In another 32 years (58 next month) I'll be lucky to use oxygen let alone to do anything with it!
My club has a 92 year old member. Sadly 6 months ago he had a small stroke, then a fall and broke his pelvis. Think his riding days are put on hold. Only just last year bought his first brand new motorcycle.
Cheers

Mmmm....A couple of Viagra and aspirins daily should see an improvement in the blood circulation, vital to our organs and well being, a few prunes with cereal in the morning will keep the body balanced and ready for any action.  Egg cup full of Castrol R in the tank, clip-ons and one will feel like 17 again......
