I am 58, arthritis, fused right ankle, bad bowels, auto immune disease, back and neck issues, shoulder and hand issues.
I'm not done yet, pissed winter came early. I had more riding to do.
My 2020 better be better, no hospital no breaking bikes and a new(used) DRZ, or such better make it into my possession.
Glad, you had a good time and are happy with the "new" CT.
Happy Thanksgiving (late) Merry Christmas and Happy New,
2020.

Padilen, You are hard core! You give me hope. :) That is some list. We are pretty close in age and as it turns out we share some of the same health concerns. I do suffer greatly from IBS also. From midnight on to 7 am most times. I do feel your pain there. I am now experamenting with a concoction of coconut oil and another additive and it seems to have maybe cured it! Decades of misery there. I pray it lasts.
It looks like a brutal winter for everyone BUT Florida this season. I cant imagin dealing with the extreme cold weather at this point in my life. Hope you CT is tucked away and in hibernation. 2020 will be the year for you Padilen. Fair weather, plenty of camping and good riding for you! Don and I will be thinking of you on our next trip in Jan. You, your CT and DRZ would fit right in with us old guys.
Imagin this guy has a fruit smoothie and not a beer. :beer:

Thank you so much Tommy. I hope you and Don, have some great adventures.
I can't tell, what your blue bike is, so please help a gal out.

Paddilen,

2006 yamaha TTR 250. I really did consider contacting you right before I found a street legal frame about 6 months ago. From Texas. I found it on e-bay.
I just swaped everything from my bike to that street legal frame and VIOLA, a new/used duel sport 250. Maxs out at 74 mph with a tail wind, down hill. 8)

Im not proud and some what embarrassed at times but its all I can manage phiscacaly and financially. I cosidered asking you to buy it for a doller make it street legal and sell it back to me. Yes, crazy buy any way it worked out.

I don't have any grand kid pics to show...but since you mentioned it, here she is post swap :D

I also had to redo the seat cover as the stock one was torn. That was fun to learn. 8)
