I will be 61 next month. I have had my OW XR for 2 months and have 250 miles on it (it was still kiteboarding season or I would have more miles). Riding road, grass, trails, gravel. Can do 180's, ride switch, drop curbs. No significant crashes for the first 160 miles then my first nose dive with minor hip injury. Likely rider error in accelerating hard up an 8% grade. 2nd crash was rider error as I was goofing around in gravel. Minor hip (same side) and shoulder injuries. I don't bounce like I used to nor do I heal very quickly. In addition to a helmet and wrist guards I have now added hip padding (Triple8 Butt Saver), combined shoulder/elbow pads from my dirt bike gear, knee pads, and gloves under the wrist guards when I am doing anything at speed. I plan on donning my motorcycle race leathers and gear to do a speed run ignoring push back. Should be amusing!
