65-85+ Thread
 
Okay folks - here is the 65+ thread.

maddmaxx 05-14-08 07:09 AM

Hi, I'm new to this 65+ thread. I'm not quite 65 yet but I feel like it. Would it be ok for me to hang around with you geezers for a couple of years?

You could always lie about your age:rolleyes:

BTW.....what happened to your avatar? I miss the very distinguished, colorful wabbit:(

Riding age? Insurance age? IRS age? Calendar age? The whole age thing gets more and more confusing the older I get.

Cheers!

Do I get a pass even though I'm not really 65 ?

It was probably one of those senior moments:)

I'm in as well. Good idea. I like being over 65 and still planning and actually doing bicycle touring.
Good for you Denver Fox to lobby for us Grey Panthers.

?

The block on those of us who do not yet measure up does not seem to be working yet.

The Weak Link 05-14-08 09:29 AM

I see your point.

IF:
-you don't smoke,
-keep your weight at least a little in check,
-stay away from excessive mind-altering substances,
-don't smoke,
-have a decent genetic heritage,
-have a little disposable income,
-appreciate what you have instead of whining about what others have and you don't,
-have a sense of humor, and
-don't smoke,

then 50 is the new 30. That would make 65 the new 50.

So it's all good.

I don't like* to be excluded! I like to think I am welcome and loved everywhere! :)

John E 05-14-08 09:32 AM

I'll see if Gordy Shields wants to start a 90+ thread in a couple of months. :)

I am only 39 (hexadecimal), so what do I know?

So how hard can it be to understand?

"You must be 65 + to post on this thread." In other words, "NO BABY BOOMERS ALLOWED"

Floyd 05-14-08 11:32 AM

I would post here but am not yet the designated age so will go looking at other posts. OR do clergy get to cheat cause we do not retire till seventy.??

Well, if 65 is the new 50, that means we should all qualify, especially if you count the delegates from Michigan and Florida.

OK, I'm friggin' leaving now.

Since when have we boomers done what older people told us to do? :50:

TruF 05-14-08 11:36 AM

Are you asking for a new 65+ sub-forum, DF? Or just this 65+ thread? I don't want the 65+ forum to lure anyone from the 50+ forum! It would be like losing family/collective wisdom/dear friends. :cry:

10 Wheels 05-14-08 11:43 AM

I qualify Twice. 66 y/o. Lost both sets of car keys to my Buick last week. They are somewhere in the house?
Yep, went to Bucik had a set made. When I got home found one set in my computer chair.
Good thing one never forgets how to ride a bicycle.

maddmaxx 05-14-08 11:50 AM

Its age discrimination I tell you...................

Foldable Two 05-14-08 12:00 PM

So, given the new paradigm, I am really 50, and I retired at age 42.

Unfortunately, the money won't last long enough that way, so I will have to continue being 65. :cheers:


2010 UPDATE: Will turn 67 next week...ugh.

2012 UPDATE: Now 69 - Back in PNW with a couple of new bikes. Softball season starts soon.
