    Its OK bro... I am coming to 56 years young and still actively involved in racing supermotards at Pasir Gudang.

    Its time to do the things you had always wanted to do but never had the time. Disappointment is temporary.. regret is for life.

    Life is short, play harder.

    Yeah, that would be interesting. At least most of us will be creaking and aching in the same way.......
    Not many legal places to ride in singapore. Wonder if the green corridor left by the vacated KTM railway tracks can be ridden......

    Cheers,

    In my group there are also handful of more matured bros riding all sorts of bike.
    1 just came back from Tibet 28days trip on a BMW GS800F

    When you ride....it helps you to keep fit ... ^_^

    I am 57 and taking part in the Open 250 MSS races with a Honda CBR250R at Sepang this year, am actually the oldest participant there.

    I believe if your passion is strong enough, age is never a factor. I guess when time is getting shorter, you got to play harder.
