I was at a Christmas party, and there was a d-bag there who was making jokes about my old man and his bike (He's 80, and rides a 70's Yamaha XS750.) He was saying how maybe the old guy should get a scooter, but that it was "hard it was to look cool while riding a scooter". (I have a scooter, among other bikes, so that was annoying after hearing him rip on my dad).

I asked him what he rode.

He said "his wife wouldn't let him ride a motorcycle". I looked at my dad, and we both just laughed and walked away.

its hard to look cool while riding a xs750.

not that it matters. if i make it to 80 and can still ride, that will give me another 20years!

LOL! I respectfully disagree. If you ride, it cool. Doesn't matter what it is, even a Harley. Wink

My pop rode until 83.   Hard to top that generation.

It's not about "looking cool" anyhow. That's reserved for the posers.
