Old body, the enthusiasm of a 20 year old, but with more skill and cunning!
Regular readers will remember the Feburary posts about strategies for ageing riders to continue riding for as long as possible, and earlier posts about skill training. The ageing rider posts were prompted by my discussions with David Hough, a world-renowned motorcycle author, particularly in the area of safety and skills.
Coming back from holiday, there was another email from David covering a few more points about ageing and also mentioning some difficulties with mentoring/skill transfer across generations. I've reproduced it verbatim below as it was one of the most succinct and cogent pieces of writing I've seen for a long while. See what you think.
...... and with writing like that, it's clear why David has earned the huge respect that he has among the motorcycling community.
