Bloody YOOF!
« on: 16 May, 2018, 09:25:07 PM »
Oh to be 17 again,
Yesterday out for a spin I got shown the way to ride like you stole it by a guy on a Honda MOTO 3 look-a-like .
Flat stick at 75 but 75 everywhere (well not uphill but you get the idea)
I passed him on a up hill stretch got stuck behind a dawdling tourist when round the outside comes the little Honda. by The time I got by the car he was off, head down arse up  passed two Discoveries into a thirty and gone!
By the time I got through the thirty and passed the Disco's he was nowhere to be seen ahead.
I had to peddle the biffer at a fair rate to catch him only for him to nip by a builders van into a left right left and pissed off again
I bet he was laughing like a drain in his helmet  showing the old guy a clean pair of heels.

Don't worry about da YOOF. Age brings wisdom, and (usually) a greater desire to stay alive.
I hope you don't 'catch up' with him whilst he's laid up in plaster in a casualty ward, learning his own wisdom..........!

It did cross my mind as well. But we were all young once and we all felt invincible  .
Maybe he will take to the track and become a Repsol Honda superstar.

Yep. No matter how fast we all think we are, there's ALWAYS someone faster.
At school my mate was the fearless nutter. He'd beat all of us on any bike. Decades later, he's now a doctor and has a Volvo and a Honda NC750. I guess when you've mended so many broken bones, you tend to calm down a bit! To him, I'm probably the nutter now. Ho hum....

Always remember this mantra:

There are OLD bikers and there are BOLD bikers....
But there are no OLD BOLD bikers!
