Which is best, Ibuprofen or acetaminophen after a long riding day? Celebrex before you start

Which highways have the most bathrooms?
Gravel Roads have trees

Best sidecar options?
Can you Trike a KLR?

Prescription riding goggles?
I'm not sure I want to see all that much

What's this red button and where is the kickstarter?
[BWhat's that Flashing Green Light on the dash?[/B]

Made it a "Sticky" for now. See how much action it gets. Another option is to subscribe to the thread.

My 4 year old granddaughter told me yesterday that I was getting a lot of gray hair while she was playing the role of Doctor. I asked: "Doctor, what does that mean?"
She replied, in the soft but authoratative Doctor tone; "It means you are getting really old."

So I guess I'll be a regular in this thread.
bigjohnsd and PaddyD like this.

"It's a friggen motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you shit your pants every now and then. "

On topic with geezers,

I have altered my bike with risers and taller bars to accomodate
a torn rotator cuff. Been riding this way two years. Surgery in
8 days.

Anybody else modifying their ride for age? Lowering it, wide bars for easier steering,
sidecar cuz equilrbrium is off a bit, gastank peebag? LOL, etc.

We already have slow bike to match the fading reflexes. Just the same, racecar
drivers and pro golfers go till their practically dead. Same here as long as I can get
a leg over the seat.

Torn rotator cuff many years ago, surgery, freak fall, 2 severed cuffs, pain and movement issues. Told inoperable. PT at the VA then back to disc golf...better. Now 2015 KLR w bars pulled back a bit and thrashing hilly backroads, pain at first but huge progress. With passenger thrashing backroads, a real workout, but shoulder is better than anytime in the last decade. 67 years and a happy camper.

Only thing I've modified in my "older-years" is the difficulty of the roads I go on.
OH' YA!! I've made my seat more comfortable to. And, Well... Maybe a few more pills??
Should I go on?
