Rode with an old friend today

Meet up with Lee at T.W.O. today and we decided to ride to Morganton and back on our favorite road. Lee is 76 years old has arthritis in his hips so bad that he can hardly walk or use his hands. You would never know it when he gets on the Speed Triple. He is smooth and fast. I like seeing him kick the young guys ass and then stop and let them see who they just got passed by. He is an amazing person. We have had some great rides and a lot of close calls. Why either one of us are still here I will never know. I made this video today. Since I have slowed down some ,it drove Lee crazy. We still rode pretty fast just not what he is used to.

That's a long video! Cool that he is still riding a naked sportbike at 76!

Nice video!! It's nice to be in the twisty's. Looks like the back roads in my area. What camera are you using? Really stable picture.
