Last Sunday I watched Sunday Morning and they had this guy who was 100 years old and still riding a motorcycle with his wife....He is also a downhill skier ...I hope that I can be as healthy as this guy and still active...

Re:100 Year old Biker 3 Years, 6 Months ago  
You know, I was over at my friend's yesterday getting some tattoo work done, and a friend of his stopped by, riding his '07 Fatboy. After a few minutes, he went his way. I didn't think much of it until later on, my friend said something about the guy going to the gym every day and that he was 73 years old. I about fell over. I might have guessed that he was about 60. But 73?? Now you show us a 100 year old still riding!! Maybe there's more to this riding stuff than we thought!!

WOW, I can only hope I have MS diagnosed in 01, so my prospects don't look good... but I will go down fighting every inch of the way!

I have so many implants that I set off metal detectors and I have to carry Implant cards in my wallet.
Besides my MS. I got hit by a drunk in 03 it nearly cost me my life I owe my life to the paramedics that jumped started me while i was still trapped in my truck here is a pic that's me in the truck.

Looks and sounds like you were fortunate enough to get a second chance, that in itself is awesome! I see so many that don't but having a call like yours and being able to make a difference is why I love my job!

Wow! 100 and still fit enough to ride and it appears to be a GoldWing. Not some small scooter. My Dad turned 82 last Jan. and still rides his RoadStar down in Naples, Fl, but is putting it up for sale because he needs to stay close to home to take care of Mom. So 82 and still riding is our family record and one I hope to beat in about 24 years. Even if we have to give up riding before we give up the ghost, we can at least say "been there, done that".
