Walking away

I now 47 years old hanging my boots up it was fun but it time to move on.

For the rest of you enjoy the sport and pass on the enjoyment to others.

See you guy and gilrs latter.

I now restoring my Corvette for fun.

Sold all my bikes it been a very enjoyable 35 plus years of riding.:ride:


am, has, 's, am, 's ,-1 t Good luck to you sir.


too early to hang it up. I still ride, but at a little slower pace on the trails and enjoy it. Hope to be riding for another 15 years or more...you'll be back!

the saddest thing about this post is this guy thinks at 47 he is now to old to ride. I plan on being a lot older then that and hitting the trails. I have an Aunt who is in her 60's and riding.

I'll be 46 this year and I am getting my boots back out.

I bought the neighbor kids yz250f.

My children are older and i need to start practicing so that my grandchildren wont faster.

I'll definitely be taking marvs advice and passing the sport on!!!!!

Sorry to see you call it quits Marv. Best of luck to you! :ride:

About a month ago there was a 74 year old that broke his neck at a local race, loaded his bike and drove 2 hours home before going to the hospital and finding out that he had broke his c2. Quiting at 47 is kinda WEAK!!!!!

You will be back!

I am 49 this year and racing both motocross and desert!All i can say is ;you will be back!!!!!!!!!and good luck on that rebuilding car stuff. mo money mo money

My Dad said he will be out of riding in the next couple of years he is only 42!!!!!! He told me that and I thought to myself why would you quit at 42.So we talked and turns out he wont be hanging up his boots.He has been riding since he was 8 years old thats already 34 years on the odometer for him and hes still fast he currently riding a klx450r and had many bikes in the past all 2 strokes he has had 2 back surgerys

You have your reasons for leaving the sport. I respect that. I for one plan of riding till I cant lift my leg over my bike. I have ridden with guys in there 70s and can only hope I m riding when I'm there age. Good luck to you and have fun with Vette.

Sorry to see you call it quits Marv. Best of luck to you! :ride:

X2. :ride:

I can see selling those monsters you had, but there's no reason not to ride. get yourself a tame bike like a 250f, slow down and have fun.

I'm just turning 60, I intend to quit when they pry my cold, dead fingers off the throttle!

Coming from a Vette owner, I can relate.

I also have a 1st Gen Camaro RS/SS that I dropped in progress........ to get my dirt bike projets finished up.

I can say that I'm your opposite.

Good luck on the restore/rebuild.

am, has, 's, am, 's ,-1 t Good luck to you sir.

Now that's funny!

I guy that rides in our normal group is in his mid-60s and he's one of the fastest on the trails.

One of my best friends is 53 and he still rips a 450. Every year he says,"I don't know how long I will be able to do this." It has been about 5 years of hearing him say it, but he just can't quit.... What ever your reasons may be, another Good Luck wish from here too.

I was riding a CR500 and a KTM560 both bikes just did not do it for me anymore and it has ended up to be more hassle to load them up just to go riding than it was worth to me.

I was looking at a Ducati Supermoto but the dirt riding days are over for me but I put my restore my Vett for now I can dirtve this to work and me and my dauther can go for cruise it together we leave the Wife at home Ha Ha.

Oh yea my curising speed om my dirt bike is hauling ass for others just rode for so many years now it time to walk away I bored with it to the point it no fun anymore.

The big bore bike just not enough anymore it like a some one on drugs always wanting more as in faster quicker more toopend sooner or latter it time to walk away before it kills you in the end you just not bored.

I could not own a small bore bike it be like riding a moped.

I thought for a long time I would been riding into my 60s+ but something telling me its time to quit now.

In the past when I did not listen to the little voice out bad things have happen But it told me to get married I should of not listen back then Ha Ha.

Well, just keep in mind that you only get one chance at life, no re-do's, and you can always, as suggested, just slow down and take it easy.

I can't wrap my head around the idea that I will never ride again. Not willing to do that personally but, like I said before, wish you all the best Marv. :ride:
