This is the "why" for riding a trike, if you are an old fart.. :D ..old bones do not heal fast or well.

I turned 70 last month... and I've gone OTB 3 times in the past 2 years! Fortunately nothing broke (or even got bruised). The moral to this story is, "pick the place you're going OTB very carefully". :mrgreen:

But I agree completely. For one thing, I don't have the stamina I had when I was a kid of 60. Although part of that might be that it's still very early in our riding season; heck, our trails are still soft and mushy and the mountain trails 75 miles west of me are closed to anything with wheels for at least another two weeks.

There are lot of us old guys here on the forum. I don't want to lose any; we need the users. :lol:
