      Old and slow

      An Airbus 380 is on its way across the Atlantic. It flies consistently at 800 km/h at 30,000 feet, when suddenly a Eurofighter with Tempo Mach 2 appears.

      The pilot of the fighter jet slows down, flies alongside the Airbus and greets the pilot of the passenger plane by radio: "Airbus, boring flight isn’t it? Now have a look here!"

      He rolls his jet on its back, accelerates, breaks through the sound barrier, rises rapidly to a dizzying height, and then swoops down almost to sea level in a breathtaking dive. He loops back next to the Airbus and asks, "Well, how was that?"

      The Airbus pilot answers: "Very impressive, but now you look!"

      The jet pilot watches the Airbus, but nothing happens. It continues to fly stubbornly straight, with the same speed. After 15 minutes, the Airbus pilot radios, "Well, how was that?

      Confused, the jet pilot asks, "What did you do?"

      The AirBus pilot laughs and says, "I got up, stretched my legs, walked to the back of the aircraft to use the washroom, then got a cup of coffee and a chocolate fudge pastry.

      The moral of the story is:

      When you are young, speed and adrenaline seems to be great. But as you get older and wiser, you learn that comfort and peace are more important.

      This is called S.O.S.: Slower, Older, but Smarter.

      Dedicated to all my friends who are like me, now realizing that it is time to slow down and enjoy the rest of the trip. Dedicated to all seniors.

      Why i ride a Goldwing and not a Harley scooter.

      Set the cruise at 75, radio on to some old time music that i can hear, we both lean back in our sofa type seats, hands off the wheel, air conditioner on and enjoy the ride.
      Now and then slow down to 55 and hope a lady will flip me a boob as they drive by (and it does happen). db

      Hell yes. Rarely does a BJ not enhance an anecdote or story. Deep Purple should've included a BJ in Smoke On the Water.

      We all came out to Montreux
      To get BJ's on the lake shoreline...

      Uncle Steve defines minnows as any small fish racing around to relax.

      You can't build a wall high enough to stop a vaccine.

      --the significance of the passage of time? RIGHT? So when you think about it; there is great significance in the passage of time and there's SUCH great significance in the passage of time

      Imagine, if you will, a world where every tweet and meme must be fact checked, but not a ballot.

      The air conditioner:
      Dip my shirt in water before driving to control the temp, blower speed by speed of bike.

      One of the many features of a Honda besides attracting the ladies desires they have from time to time over a Harley. db
