    You do not quit riding because you get old. You get old because you quit riding.

    That's a good one. I like a corollary: "A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams". - John Barrymore

    I don't ride the BRP much. It is a pretty road indeed, but too many tourists, (and they're gawking all around) and the locals use it for commuting too. Sometimes packed. It's better away from the metro areas.
    I admit I'm spoiled with riding roads. I really don't have to 'go anywhere', I live in them.

    Much like firearms you should update your skills with training from time to time. This guy is the best. You can as you get older tip the odds in your favor.
