I had recently received and accepted an invitation to take part in an event called the “GS” (BMW) challenge.
On Aug 13 we rode to the prairie creek area (S.W. of Rocky Mountain House) in pouring rain. There we spent 2 days taking part in various skill- testing events and a major trail ride. Being 79, I was by far the oldest of the 91 participants.
I did ok on my Honda XR650L, but I chose to ride the toughest of the 3 trails offered, the “expert” run. I made out ok, but being about 25 years older than the average age of the group of 19, it proved to be pretty tough on my body.
One gets old too soon, and smart too late….
