I was surprised. A difficult subject to write about, done well. I am beyond mid-life but still ride daily. After completing Motorcycling Through Midlife, I started to mentally pack my bags. I have traded in my big LT and RT on a BMW C650GT. OMG, a scooter! I know I will be able to enjoy that Nirvana into the 80's. Thank you, John, for reaffirming why I like to ride. Mr. Metzger describes so well that going wherever you're going is a lot more fun than getting there.
I rated Motorcycling Through Midlife four stars only because I find it difficult to rate a book on the Zen of Motorcycling 5 stars. I've got to save a star for everlasting classics, but if you ride, want to or just dream about riding, you will enjoy this book.
Motorcycling Through Midlife shows baby boomers how to ride into old age. "Though it's a dangerous hobby, motorcycling can be the finest expression of joy and freedom if approached with the wisdom of midlife - and before we get too old."
