Took my 72 year old Dad for his first off road ride since his shoulder replacement last year.
Needless to say... I was really concerned...
But he did great.
I guess that's what happens when you ride bikes for over 50 years.
He actually took two low speed tumbles.... Nothing serious.
He got up this morning and is a little sore but mostly his legs as the whoops were incredible.... Sharp, tall, and steep...
Perfect for my Racetech suspension...

Yep.. that's my sire to the right :lol:

Funny thing... I forgot my pants... Sooooo.... I rode in my shorts :shock:

I wouldn't recommend riding in shorts on a KX500 but hey, you do what you gotta do ;)

The whoops were crazy... Perfect for riding my suspension to the limit...
Over the whoops you can see that I came close but never bottomed out.

Over all had a great day of riding with my Dad.
Something that we won't be able to do for too many more years.
If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.
