I'm also 54. When I hit 50 I started drinking more tequila...it didn't help my riding, but it made me not worry about my decline as much!I just find it odd that he seems better at age 36 than he was at age 34 or 35. It's not really normal to get better in your late 30's. What did he do to reverse the normal aging decline? I need to find out because I'm 54.
