    I may not be qualified to speak...but if I may...

    I'm heading back into bikes from skateboarding, which I did from 1975 'til about 1991...then I got into Mountain bikes (cause obviously skateboards were for kids). I rode bikes fairly hardcore (oxymoron?) until 1997 (when my first kid was born...and the internet became widely available). So while I couldn't go off on multi-hour bike rides...I started looking online back at skating, found a bunch of other "old" guys that were still into skating...and started skating again. That went real well up until this past year or so...concrete and 47 year old flesh don't always agree...but I still need "speed" and fun.

    During that time I got involved in a few skate related boards similar to this. It all goes in (excuse the pun) cycles. The "cool guys/bros" are there for a while, get otherwise occupied and move on...then there's a new wave of newbs/geeks (guess that's me here, now) that pop up and annoy the "middle ground" of folks...and essentially it all keeps rolling. Someone will lament the passing of some guru that used to be here, somebody that was on a lower tier will step up, some new guy will get cool status...in a year or so it will all happen again.

    Again..accepting my rookie status..just throwing that opinion out there...and thanks for the bike porn.
    I'm having more FUN than anybody!

    Well I'm certainly old, I have recently been pretty busy and I have been drunk many times over the last 40 plus years - and in jail once, now you mention it.
    And in a couple of weeks I'm pissing off to Greece for a couple of months for some riding, some beers, plenty of sun, a few ouzos..........
    I'll probably still check in on here from time to time though , even though I'm not really a regular.....

    Wait...you have to be an older member to be busy/drunk/in jail? Where was that when i signed up? That being said where would the young guys like me be without the awesome old guys pushing us? I mean it was a 71 year old man that laughed when i ordered my beer poured it out and ordered me a guinness. Wise man wise man.

    More worthwhile than road-tripping to the nearest IMBA "epic," IMHO.

    I haven't been drunk or in jail since I was a young guy.
    I may or may not be laughing at you.
