That is about all the daily miles that Jeremy is doing on his trip to South America ... so maybe, if you are really going to smell the roses along the way, that isn't so bad.They must ride pretty slow at age 81 if it takes them 13 days to 1100 km. I'd hate to get stuck behind them on the highway. What is that like 50 miles a day ?
Nice Video. That's why I still ride.
I got my first bike at 16 (Harley 250). Had to move out of my parents house as they would never let me have one so got a job and bought it for $300. Never been without one since. Couldn't afford both a car and bike so I was 30 before I got my first car.
Riding a motorcycle is nothing like riding a car. You are out in the elements. You can see the road racing beneath you. You do not have the distractions of radio, A/C, etc. and you can just enjoy the journey.
At 50, many say I should stop riding. I have carpal tunnel with can make holding the throttle painful at times. I have back problems with can interfere with riding. And though I usually take shorter trips now, I'll never quit. There's nothing like it.
