I met a 67 year old Busa rider once. I was admiring his bike when I pulled in on mine. He came out of the restaurant at that time and said it was his. Asked if I wanted to go riding. Sure I said, thinking the poor guy was probably gonna need me to hold up for him a lot but happily was willing. I had had my bike about 3 months at that time.
It was he whom was pulling up for me. He never went under triple digits and he was the first guy to show me that these bikes and speed are made for each other. To this day, that man showed and taught me more about riding these bikes at high speeds than any other source I have yet to meet. He was magic on the Busa and amazed me at how smooth and fluid he was and what he could make these big girls do. Sweeping entrance ramps, never hit a brake and never slowed to anything much less than about 80. It was me who was playing catch up. So I NEVER will say old guys can't ride. I hope to be riding that well at that age.
Since then, I have learned to gravitate to older riders that have been riding for their whole lives. Hell now I am becoming one of them. If they are still riding and not dead, they obviously are doing something a lot more right than wrong.
Good on ya for not getting a ticket. That is rare from my dealings with Fla. LEO. Their policy seemed to be pull over first, find a violation second.
