    And you my friend [I think] are still confused as to what the Attoyac said. Only Attoyac can answer for sure what he meant. Waiting,waiting,waiting for his return to set us straight.
    Thanks for the responses. A little inspiration, goes a LONG way. Thanks again :-)
    I'm 63 now, and I have not ridden since 1986, when I purchased a Schwinn "High Sierra" which I still have. To my knowledge, that was about, when Schwinn was starting to build a "mountain bike."A few years before that, I was on two Harleys, and a Schwinn "Traveler."

    listen to your body, your legs will tell you when you did too much.

    Once again, Welcome back!!
    Great advice here. I'm 61 and have been riding ever since I bought my first MTB (Rockhopper) in 1987. I'm still riding all the same CO Front Range trails as I always have, albeit a little more slowly and with less aggression, but with more pure joy and satisfaction than ever. Welcome back!

    I was applauding a very early mtber in 1986.
    I hate to rub it in but as you can see Attoyacs / OP's latest post I was right.

    Re: 63 year old, giving this sport a second try after 28 years

    I'm not getting you DJ. . .

    I applauded the fact that he was riding in 86, saying he was original gangsta. He then confirmed he rode in 86, confirming he was indeed, original gangsta. What did I get wrong?

There are 22 mountain bikes in my garage because after spending a lot of $ on each bike, you never get 1/2 back if you sell one, so I just keep them all. Its fun going out to the garage and pick a bike, check it over, and go for a ride. I am never going to stop.
    That my friend is awesome. Keep riding and let me know if you want to hit up some So-Cal trails. At 52, I'm in the best shape in 30+ years, and I have no plans to stop riding, or slow down riding at this point. I'm addicted!

    Sober re alcohol but not bikes! Hi, I'm doralswheels and I'm a bike-a-holic. Hi doralswheels

    In the 80s I had a lot of friends into cocaine. It was interesting to see them give that up and get into titanium.
    I don't rattle.

    The way you worded it, it came across as you were suggesting he was 86 years old. Sorry my bad..
