  • Don't mess with old bikes

    Just got home from a nice scenic 400 mile day ride. Stopped at a gas station to top off about 20 miles from the house. I was finishing up when some kid on a crotch rocket stopped to fuel up.

    He walked over and started giving me crap about riding a tricycle. I guess I pissed him off when I said when I get to old and frail for this 1100 tricycle, I 'll buy myself a sport bike like yours, because the next 4 words out of his mouth were wanna race old man?

    I looked up and said sure, I'll tell you what. There's a rest area about 4 miles up the road. First one there wins, no stakes, just bragging rights.

    I waited while he finished fueling and watched him do a burn out, and haul ass down the road. I passed him about a mile down the road where the police car that had been parked acrosse the street from the gas station finally got him stopped.

    I cruised on down and pulled into the rest area, took off my gear and sat down at a picnic table in the shade.

    About 10 minutes later, he came cruising by doing the speed limit. I waved at him, but he just flipped me off and kept on going.

    When will kids nowadays learn that you don't mess with old guys?
