I don't know if its in print on the net or not I know the cover is, I will try to find out. The Geezers articles go back to 04-05 and we're bringing them back, the mag changed hands and the new owner is younger and wants to expand the base with more real life stories with non pro testers .I have another article comming up in April on my good riding buddy and bay area legend who will be 86 when he gets his new fz09 and he will ride the wheels off it. Kem the other guy on the cover is 77 and a former AFM road racer and Sunday Morning Ride rider since 1972, after the comparison and photos he called Scott at Berkeley yamaha and has a new fz comming. There is no reason to let age slow down doing what you love. RR:cool:

I am 61 so I certainly qualify to be called a "Geezer."

My favorite moniker is "Semi fossilized old guy."

Congrats on your cover shot.

Remember: "Old guys rule." Even if you are Viagra assisted!

Awesome! I'd love riding with you guys (if I could keep up!). Congratulations on making the magazine cover.

I read that article a couple weeks ago @ Scuderia West... and I wondered if you were a member of this forum.

Congrats on landing the cover!

"Do wheelies end at 60?"

I'm getting close to that age and the answer is hell no!

Wheelies sure don't end at 60 and having the wheel in the air was one reason I bought the bike but I know my wheelies are closer to the pavement and not carried as far but who cares. This bike puts a big smile on my face everytime I ride it. I will see if my son can figure how to put the article on the forum my computer skills are limited. RR:cool:
