Well darn, some of you guys are still here. I'm still running my shop. Tried to retire but my customers wont let me. Doing a lot of restorations for a collector in Los Vegas. He has an awesome collection of famous road racers and flat trackers ridden by many of the top national and international stars. He keeps most of then on display at the Red Rock Harley Davidson Dealership in LV. Still have my CR450R but, it's more of a lawn ornament now. Not riding dirt other than the occasional test ride. Can't see, can't pee, OH, woe is me. LOL. Spend more time in the canyons on my street bike. Will keep doing that until I can't hold it up anymore. I still give Gomer crap on Facebook, he's into kayaking now. He says it hurts less to crash in the water. Haven't talked to Elk in a while, he's retired and street riding a Harley now. Great to see some of the second generation riders getting into the sport. I'm working on my third generation, great grand kids. Kudos to you Bob for keeping the site up and running for so long. Anyway, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. 9er out.

Hey Terry - It's hard to imagine you NOT in the shop creating some magic. Retirement seems more like a shift in focus than an absence of fun stuff to do. At least that's the plan I'm working on for this spring :-)

I've been trying to get to retirement but just can't quite do it. If I could get insurance, I'd retire tomorrow.
I'm in the same boat. I just don't want to skimp on the insurance. Several guys I know retired early and got Obuma care but very minimal coverage and the deductibles are huge for any of the good packages that I could find. 3 more years until Medicare kicks in then I'm done!

I'm in that boat with you guys.. Insurance is a must before I can call it quits..

Been a while since I've been around here. Of course I haven't been on a dirtbike in almost a decade.. Old bones don't really do well on one anymore.

Anyway, back to the insurance thing. Just went thru a little COVID-19 thing first of the month. Insurance paid $30,000, leaves me with $5,000 to pay out of pocket. Would be far more screwed had I not had insurance.

That’s true Rich. I doubt I will ever really retire. Enjoy what I do and have more projects going than I will ever finish. Seen too many friends that have retired and then dead within a year. Gotta keep active.
