Says who? Acting maturely is not attractive. Having fun is.

I never tried a wheelie like the young guys, though. They could ride a wheelie for a looong time. I never could even do a wheelie on my bicycle when I was a kid.

Not as crazy as the teenage guys but not bad for a granny. I love acting much younger than my age. It probably isn't attractive but what the heck.
Yep, and in a grassy field you're probably not going to get hurt. The guy I was with rolled the 4 wheeler back over on top of himself and crushed his chest.

That's generally the case. I know I've hurt myself doing stupid stuff on my bike...

Thanks for the offer. The situation is not quite that bad, plus I need to be here to sort it out.

The worst I've seen was definitely not the biker's fault. Many are, but this one was a downright freak occurrence.

Well you know the offer is there. Maybe you'll have it sorted by spring break and you can come hasn't just for the hell of it.

I don't do stupid things on a 4wheeler until the moonshine comes out. Then I try to jump everything. Last accident involved me and a buddy meeting a cedar tree weren't going real fast, 25 or so. Bent the entire front end in.

Brothers about to come pick me up. Headed to the hills, see our grandmother and ill visit my grandfathers grave. I was working when they buried him. I saw him 2 weeks prior to his death.

Taking plenty of bang bang sticks and fodder. It's ate up with druggies and bad dudes down there. Have seen a few murders in the news as of late that part of the world.
