Personal choice as I have other things on my bucket list before I check out.
The way I ride Cpt Lawrence's fate would be inevitable. We are two days away from that anniversary:
"Lawrence sped through the English countryside on his Brough Superior SS100 motorbike. He suddenly saw two boys on bicycles on the narrow country road and swerved to avoid them. However, he clipped one of the bikes and was thrown forward over the handlebars. Lawrence never recovered from his massive brain injuries and died at the age of 46 on May 19."

None of of knows how long we have to live.

We get no real guarantees about life other than it will end at some time.

So do as many of the things you like to do while you can.
