The Old Man

Had a pretty good year since I turned 50 last Feb. Some good trail rides as well as a few fun trips with my wife and good friends. I also decided to re-build an old jump area & in the fall I got back to working a few DJ tricks that had gotten away from me - For my 51st Birthday I compiled MY "best footage edit" from the past 12 months - Enjoy and NEVER GIVE UP RIDING- ALL!.............RS

 i don't care how old you are, that was an excellent video (VOD for sure!!) the fact that you're 50 is inspiring, though. i'm 45 and have no intention of slowing down. watching your vid reassured me that i don't have to.lol. huge props

 Great video rich!! At almost 42 I was thinking about hangin it up, but you have inspired me to keep going and have as much fun on two wheeels as I can. Nice double by the way, Iam rockin the bottlerocket. OLD GUYS RULE!!

 Loved this. Hung the bikes up about 5 years ago to hang with the babies. Just bought an '06 Switch yesterday and getting ready to start up again. Ill be 41 this year and a lot of guys are thinking Im a little off to start riding again, including me. Im a little fatter than when I quit but thats going to go away. After watching this, Im even more stoked to tear up the trails again. Thanks for posting this. Truly motivating.

 Hell yeah bro. I hope in 17 years I am still riding like that. There are days I wonder how much longer my body will take the abuse. With the music I kept expecting to see Brandon Semenuk pull some sick off axis backflip.

 Oh yeah. Sick double. I think some of us from the Arkansas Freeride Society are going to try to make it there this summer. Looks like some great riding.
