... is to beat this guy.
Britain's oldest biker still going strong at 94: Reg Scott has ridden nearly 400,000 milesAt the age when most people are sitting in a comfy chair, dribbling, Reg looks to be remarkable fit, healthy and independent. Reg has ridden a motorbike for 74 years, and still rides most days. I wonder if the two are connected?
Adrenaline junkie Reg Scott is still burning rubber as Britain's oldest motorcyclist - aged 94.
The great-granddad has covered a staggering 384,800 miles during his 74 years on the road, the equivalent of riding around the world more than 15 times.
He bought his first bike - a Norton 16H 490cc - on hire purchase for 73 pounds in 1937 and has had seven more since. The most powerful was a BMW Boxer 1000cc.Me too, pal. I've only got 37 years to go and I will be passing you.
Reg now rides a Honda 250cc around his home town of Ludham, Norfolk, at least four times a week, often taking it out to do his weekly grocery shop.
He admits he has had to slow down over the years but still manages to top an impressive 60 miles per hour when out on the road.
[He says] 'You are always in the open air and can feel the ground rushing past you. You just can't get that with a car.
'On a motorbike you always feel like you are speeding even at a slow pace like 50 miles per hour. It's a real adrenaline rush and I still get it.
'Age means nothing to me. I value the independence I have with a bike and plan to carry on until I can't do it anymore.
Thirty-seven years? That's almost as long as I have been riding! In Reg terms, I'm only just half-way.
It is often said that there are many old riders, and many bold riders, but there are very few old, bold riders. I'll settle for being an old one. If riding is so much fun, why wouldn't you want to carry on as long as possible?
This guy cheers me up.
