Silly rabbit, tricks are for kids. I'm too old and fragile to do stunts.

I'm neither old nor fragile. Just smarter now

With age comes wisdom. Sometimes.

Every once in a while, I'll still do some stupid sh*t.

But it's a lot slower now.

So is the healing process.

I was talking to an eye surgeon recently and he said you lose 10% of your healing ability every 10 years. Mine is half gone so I'm twice as careful as I used to be. One guy I use to ride with is 60-something and has lost all of his healing power. He quit riding and is selling his ATVs if he hasn't already done so.

It's all individual. My Dad is 84 and still rides a little. His neighbor is 65 and can't hardly get out of a chair. My Dad mows his lawn for him.

You're right about it being an individual thing. My mom is almost 95 and mows her own grass when someone reminds her to. I forgot to tell her it was too long when I was over there Friday afternoon. She still shovels snow too. All that hard work must be what's kept her alive for so long. Too bad she's mostly deaf and blind and has dementia. When I was 20 years old my arthritis was worse than hers is right now. I doubt I'll live as long as her but either way pain will be with me until the end. Hopefully I can keep riding but I'll leave the stunts for someone else.
