The Non-Grumpy Old Men

IMG_8958

For various reasons I'm not particularly fond of motorbikes or bikers. There's one exception to this non-fondness though. And that's when the bike is handled by a more senior citizen. Men and women in their past middle age are often of course more prudent and safe drivers, but what's most striking is that they always seem to be so happy and content to the fullest enjoying this way of using the roads. Having found something that brings them great joy and fulfillment.

I discovered these three very non-grumpy men the other day and managed to sneak a photo of them - I find the guy in brown leather and a fancy moustache going on to be rather adorable, in a father Christmas kind of way. He also sported a matching and very nice bike when it came to looks, whilst the other two drove something boringly modern, drab and plastic looking. Which made me come to this empirical and scientifically well supported, sound conclusion - matter of taste in the world of senior bikers is a fancy moustache thing.
