I'm 74 and have been riding since the mid-1960s. Retiring in 2015, I've made three trips to Alaska and one of them was solo. I've done numerous trips from NC to the west coast and back. Last year, I was supposed to follow Helge Pedersen from Tokyo to Munich but COVID reared its ugly head and killed it. He's going to try it, again, next year but I'm not going. I've been on rides before when guys didn't reveal health issues and had problems along the way. I just don't want to be 'that guy.' My local riding friends have all quit so I'm solo. I think I'll ride the MABDR in a few weeks and think about maybe getting a hack made for my GSA. The day is coming, soon than I might like, when I won't be able to pick that machine up. I'm thinking about a lighter road bike, too, maybe a Ducati Multi V4. I ain't quitting until is ceases to be fun.
