You guys are the only people that can understand my obsession. I am now 58 years old and have been riding since I was 15, so thats 43 years of owning and riding dirt bikes and a couple of road bikes ( tried road bikes twice, but too boring). There isn't a day go by that I don't think about my bike or riding, I subscibe to Dirt Bike, Dirt Rider and Cycle News and read every article, then save them and go through them again from time to time. My screen saver at work is a picture of the WR450, I've got posters above my desk of the my bike, My garage wall is full of posters with signatures of Ty Davis, Destry Abbot, Brian Brown, Steve Hatch and some of the other off road greats. You would think at my age I would start losing interest, but I feel the same as I did when I was in my twentys. I dread the day I won't be able to ride any more, but I figure I've got at least another ten years maybe more. As most of you know we are a rareity, all The guys at work talk about who won the last golf tournament while I try to tell them that Ricky is kicking butt now on a four stroke. They talk about the NBA draft while I try to tell them that now Ricky is going to Suzuki. I tell them that I met Ty Davis at the last Hare & Hound and they stare at me blankly and ask what the hell is a Hare & Hound ? I tell ya this is a sickness with no cure, Some of my old riding buddys have lost interest, one just said he doesn't want to ride anymore because he's afraid of being hurt, now that just doesn't compute with me, I thought that was one of the reasons we ride is for the adreniline rush, if it was totally safe and wasn't scary what fun would that be. You younger guys beware, some of you will end up like me. I'am just glad my wife understands and doesn't say "Its either me or the bike" cause I would have to think about that for a while.
