Will be 73 this Wednesday. Riding better than ever. Not necessarily faster but better. And, yes, faster than last year.

I'm 8 days shy of 53 and I've been here about 12 years now.

I don't feel old, it's just that my body lies a LOT.

Was the Bronze Age the time of the Coppertone tan and before those Boss Goldens?

Lordy, how did you get to be 54 only once; were you in a coma? I was 54-years-old 365 timesÖ it was for an entire year.
