    Thanks for the laughs!

    I got a kick out of a recent thread that suggested that 50+ year old riders didn't crave
    super-tough and technical trails.



    I didn't move to AZ for buff, rock-free trails with no long climbing required!

    You do realize the one calling the 50+ year old rider was in fact the 50+ year old rider, don't you?

    (Really, do we need ANOTHER TD thread?)

    You probably don't realize that that's not what made me laugh, do you?

    Of course I realize that. My point is, I'd venture to say 99% of the folks on this site agree with you. If you go back, I'd venture to say 1% made comments that you find funny.

    As you grew up, your laughter rate dropped from 400 times a day (for toddlers) to the
    grown-up daily average of 15.

    Regain your youth by laughing at every possible situation.

    I'm 50 minus 6 weeks and still love the technical. I suppose after June I'll have to stay down on Desert Classic/Pemberton stuff.

    I love Brian Regan. Hadn't seen that bit. Thanks for helping out my laugh count.

    You know what they say... you pick up speed once you are over the hill. I will be middle aged in June and no I am not going to listen to my wife or anyone else as long as I keep healing quickly. At least my physical therapist says I heal quickly. Ha ha
