    Hi everyone, old fart checking in, 51 years riding and loving my XR. Toured quite a lot on the bike pre COVID and find with an MRA screen it’s quite a comfortable ride.

    Welcome Patrick, though classing yourself as an 'Old Fart' may not be correct, seems the av. age on this forum is 56, which would make you a young'un !

    I think you need to add a bit to the 51 as I have yet to meet a newborn who could ride a motorcycle :P

    #37 Pedro Acosta "When I was 5 years my father bought a motocross bike to test and it was an incredible feeling." With my dad an my sister at a Bacarot Race in 2013. "My father, my mother helped me when I first started riding a bike. They help me a lot at the races, with their help I am more relaxed and faster."

    He's an old hand. 8 years experience. They start young in Spain.

    I read it as "I am 70 years old,  got my license at 19, and been riding for 51 years".

    Although - I could be wrong, as I also assumed that his name was "Patrick Fart".  :006:
