My Friend Jim is 83. Every morning he gets up before sunup, makes a cup of coffee, and, at first light, rides out on his BMW F650.

He rides, with noticeable grace and smoothness, through the hills to Tombstone, stops alongside the park, takes out a cigar and smokes it for ten minutes, then rides back home to his ranch on the Mexican border. It's a 65 mile round trip.

My sense of it is that he believes that as long as he can do that, he's not old.

A few years ago, riding through a dried-out creek bed (same bike) he got his foot caught in a deep crack in the mud and broke his ankle. As soon as he got the cast off he got right back on the F650 and began riding.

He's my role model.
