I've been in and plan on staying in the "F'ing Awesome" stage while almost all my moto buddies have moved all the way to the "What just happened" stage already

Fresh in the yay! stage lol sadly the weather is keeping me from riding more than the baby angry

Edit: extra yay! for the father in law riding also... Needless to say, my wife knew what she was getting into and when I broke my hand two weeks before the baby she wasn't that upset

After, "What just happened?" the cycle starts over again.

Yep at 51 years old, pretty much went through all those but am about to be back to the excellent stage as will have gently used 2016 450 as of tommorow and back at it.

I'm at the Stage where my YZ250 sits in the garage but I watch my younguns rail the 50 and 110. Someday soon we'll be racing together.

If you stop the kids at the Yay stage you can stay in it! Then revert back to to the better ones.

It keeps getting better. I ride with my kids now at many of the same tracks i rode back in the 80's.

|

12/14/2016 10:53 AM

I've been all the way through the progression but skipped a few stages. I'm now back to the F'ing Awesome stage, and looking to get to the Perfect stage. I'll skip the rest this time around smile

As of this weekend coming I'll be going from the perfect stage to the one after what just happened. Myself, my wife and my four year old son all heading to the track with our bikes. It will be our sons first time on the main track. Every day tis week the first thing he has asked me when he wakes up is "it the weekend? "

I'm trying to figure where I fit in, I'm divorced and miss my kid's but I REALLY miss my dog.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Yes I was about to say that divorce messes up that pretty little stage of life diagram. There needs to be a different road installed with a hidden explosive that blows your shit up, and a longer road before you can rejoin the diagram again somewhat repaired.

I'm in the "Perfect!" stage except I'm a little too old and fragile to be throwing whips. smile

The day all of this flashed before my eyes was earlier this year when the new owner of my Evo 9 trailered it away and I got in my four door family car and left.

Up to that point I felt like I was holding on pretty good to being a family guy, but still eating my cake.

Where is the stage where your bike sits in the garage because you're too busy every weekend carting your kids around to their various sporting events and you can't ride during the week because of work?

|

12/15/2016 4:40 AM

That's the stage where you buy your kids bikes and they go with you instead of you going with them.
