I think I saw a t-shirt that said something to the effect of:
I'm not perfect but I can still ride a motorcycle at 70 and that's the next best thing.
I should have ordered it when I had the chance. That would be a neat one to have with the XLForum logo on it.

Other T-shirts :-
Never underestimate an old man who rides a Harley.
If you don't ride, you don't know!
I don't ride my bike to win races, nor do I ride to get places, I ride to escape this world, I ride to find peace with myself, I ride to feel free and I ride to feel strong.
Some grandpa's play bingo, real grandpa's ride Harleys.
Harley Dad - Like a normal dad only cooler!
To be politically correct, I should add that one of the above is only suitable for larger persons.

I still ride bicycles, road and mountain. About 20 years ago, a guy my age told me that I was too old for that s__t. He's dead. I'm not. He never smiled. I always smile from the inside out. Positive energy rules!

My wife had once asked me "Why we don't get a camper... I just replied "What's wrong with our cabin?"

My son and I "At the cabin"..

The best wife in the world surprised me with my first Sportster in ‘98 for my 50th and recently bought me a Challenger (6.4/A8) for my 70th birthday. Looking forward to turning 90!
