I have heard about 70+ year olds needing to be tested for drivers licenses, but what about motorcycle licenses?

RIP to the victim and sympathies to the family, but at least he appears to have died doing something he loved.

Eighty year old man riding a motorcycle!? Awesome! That's how I want to go out. Rest in peace, Biker Dude.

My dad still rides both road and off-road motorcycles at 81!
He is soooo happy and active.
He is one of the few people I know to have experienced heaven during his retirement and if he dies while riding, he will experience heaven at his end too!
I send my best thoughts and support for the family of this man!

I cannot believe that I am sending this message out! Andrew Sager was my Dad and I want others to know what a wonderful, loving, man he was!! While I am devistated at my loss, it is a tragic loss for my step-mom, and all my family, including my brother & his family, my son's, my grand children, my whole family, and all who had the joy of meeting him!! My Dad was the most special man I ever knew. He lit up a room with his smile; he was a loving man with a heart of gold and he adored his family. Everyone who met him, even casually loved his kind spirit and sense of humor; all who met him wanted to know him!! I rode with him every time I was in the Bay area or when he rode his bike to Southern California where most of his family lives. Those are times I will cherish for ever!! There isn't enough space to write all the wonderful qualities he had and the love and support he showed me and his family!! I want to thank all who have posted condolenses or messages of support and those who were there to try and help or prayed for him, thank you and God bless you!! Please pray for my step-mother, our family, and his friends. Thank you.
