Age beats youth EVERY time!

So last weekend I fired up the KLR and took off to my brothers place in North Vernon, Indiana. Everyone in my family rides so I met up with my brother and his family at a private motocross track that they're members of. I hadn't planned on running the track on my KLR because I have what are essentially road tires on it right now. So my brother tells me to jump on my eldest nephews 125. I was wearing my steel toed Carolina work boots so my brother tells Justin, my nephew, to let me use his SIDI boots. A little background here, Justin is 14 years old and kind of a smart-ass. I've had to throw him in a headlock a couple times in the past and noogie him to establish the pecking order. LOL. So he looks at me and goes "What? You want to wear my pants too Uncle Snow?" I didn't miss a beat and told him " They look like they'd be too loose in the waist and too tight in the crotch for me." My brother, and every other guy standing around us in the pit area either smiled or straight out laughed. That kid will never learn. If you get into a battle of wits with me he better pack a lunch!

My English teacher in high school had a plaque on her desk that said "Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill."

I've never forgotten that, and as I've aged, the statement has become more and more clear - true - to me.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
