I plan to mix it up more as I get older. Maybe spend less time ripping the throttle and more time exploring. One of the first things I want to do when I retire is load up a dual sport and ride the Trans America Trail from the Atlantic in Buxton, NC to the Pacific in Oregon. Then maybe head North to Alaska from there. Who knows and who cares? I won't have anywhere to be, all the time in the world and nobody is going to hassle the cantankerous old guy on the dirt bike.
Thanks from Warp Racer and WAfatboy

I swear by triple strength fish oil. I live 500m from the ocean and I do a lot of bodyboarding as well which is hard on the shoulders. Fish oil has anti-inflammatory properties and is great for joints.

Man we're old

Keep up your workout routine, eat your Wheaties, take your vitamins...
After I quit drinking (not for the faint of heart) 15 years ago I noticed an insurgence in energy...

Chin up ol' boy, keep a stiff upper lip and all that , part of the fun of aging is trying to do things better now that we took for granted when we were younger, especially if it hurts us...

Let the man vent. Regardless of age it sucks when life encroaches on fun. I feel you man, there's no substitute for riding this bike on the track.

While that may be true.

Get your but up here and follow us around for a day, and you may answer differently

Yea, same where I live, plus the scenery is a little better than the track. Highway 4 then over monitor and return 108. 200 miles with just a few straight stretches down 395. Lowest elevation 2000 to 9500.

When I'm up in your neck of the woods I try to be on my enduro headed up to Foresthill, etc. Great road riding too though, got friends up in Applegate and EDH.

50 right here with 2 kid brothers in the late 40's and we're still clocking top 5 amateur times at many tracks.

Here's a trick: We take the young guys to the Pub the night before, put them to sleep and the next day we ride like kings while the kids are walking off their hangovers
