You gotta ask yourself what do you really love in life? You only live once, might as well be happy while you are here. I'm within a few months of 40 myself and just coming off a broken wrist, knuckles and fingers...before that a broken left leg. I get the same reactions from people- "You're too old to be doing that stuff." But what else am I gonna do that I love? Too old to box now... Don't like fishing or hunting... Golf? NEVER! My kids ride with me, and our weekend rides/ races together are all I look forward to in life.
