He drives a 2011 GT 6 speed Premium Coupe, Performance White with a black leather gut and complains about all the "OLD COOTS" on the road in his area.
I quess age is only a number in some cases.

And you know what? That guy is me.
That's awesome! Keep on truckin' man!

My step-dad unfortunately is only 60 and has early alzheimers and cannot drive anymore. He used to get in wrecks all of the time. I would be driving somewhere and see him on the side of the road after he rear-ended someone and have to call my mom. He had to be put in assisted living.

Re: too old to drive

The Ducati is the only one I broke 200 (213 clocked) with and it scared the piss out of me, never again!... Maybe on a controlled track but not I-10, every little uneven piece of road will make you **** a brick....

I currently have an 07 cbr1000rr, stock minus the power commander and the frame sliders... I'm going to play with the stang before I do anything to the bike, I have a white cbr600rr also that is a stunt bike, cage, power commander, skid plate and sprockets done to it
