    I was really impressed as he pushed the bike out of the garage until I noticed the side car. :)
    Anyway, this man is still impressively strong at an age most of us will never reach.

    Great to see old timers still riding. My dad's 83 and rides as often as he can although he's a fair weather rider these days. He has a 54 Matchless 500 single a 78 Honda 550/4 and a 77 Kawasaki KH250. His favourite is the Matchless.

    I think I'm doing well riding at 67, but I've got a mate who's 86 and still riding. He's got an Aerial Red Hunter 500 single, and a modern Honda 500 twin. A couple of years ago he came with us on the ferry from Hull to Rotterdam and down to Normandy. He's also building himself a special with a Matchless G50 engine and Rickman frame. He reckons it's biking that keeps him going and I believe it.:)

    Great video. Hope I'm still riding the last day of my days. A hundred may be unreachable. But a fella can hope.

    A great video and story that really made me smile. :) And it gives me hope that I have many riding years ahead of me. What a great attitude he has and what great memories. I love that he has a sidecar on his bike. :grinning: I say whatever it takes. Mr. Sandi claims that he'll never ride a trike or three-wheeled bike "when the time comes". But he does comment on having a bike with a sidecar so he can take the dog. ;) Me, I'll ride whatever will keep me in the wind when I'm not able to ride two wheels safely anymore.
