Yes boats are faster but it not about the speed. It is about if the driver is able to take the stress, mentally and physically.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

With the Motocross gearing fitted to my IT465 it could hit maybe 70mph flat out but very rarely if ever hit that on a track, road gearing she was geared for around 120mph.
Now-a-days my knees would not take the hammering of a session but would still love to get back out into the hills on a bike, that is something I really miss.

I hear ya! I'm getting a super late start to this sport at 51 years old...as far as racing and riding tracks. Trying to make the most of it while my body is still somewhat able to take it. wink

Yeah been following your thread here, only a little jealous. I'll be 63 in a month's time and still want to do all those things I could do at 16 and never had the time or money to do them, the mind is willing but the body lets me down occasionally! biggrin

I was in my early 40s when I had a horse riding accident and further damaged a weak/damaged knee from playing American Football, that has put paid to anything that involves hard work on the knees. But it was 2018 when I went out horse riding in Spain and started to post to the trot that I felt the hot daggers piercing my right knee, and that was it, I ended up driving the support car belonging to the trekking outfit we were with while the driver took my place on the horse. I guess at some point I may need a new knee.

Vienna, 2nd rock left.
It's so cool to see how much you've improved, and the confidence you've gained, since starting to post the vids here. Aw crap, you make me realize I need to get back into some "manly" hobby too. Been a bit off the adrenaline for the past two years.

Thanks for following along with my mid-life crisis Gents!

Alicatt: The knees are my worry. I saw a lot of torn ACLs/MCLs from riders last season...the guys in their 30's seem to bounce back pretty good. At the moment...my knees are good and have never been injured but I know I'm probably one knee injury away from hanging it up. An arm, collarbone,wrist...not as bad...but the knees take a pounding constantly on a track.

RSColonel: From what I remember...you're still a young guy in comparison...you're not even at the mid-life crisis stage yet! Have fun while the bones can still take it!
