The simplest answer would be: Because I can.
But, there is more to it than a simple answer.
4 years ago, I went up to Washington to visit a friend and while I was up there, he took his family to a poker run. While at the poker run, I tried out his 450r and his daughter's 250ex. When I got home, I went out and bought myself a 300ex. I didn't intend to keep the 300ex long, just long enough to get used to riding. Before long (7-8 months) I wanted something faster and went out and got my 700xx and now I'm hooked. I'm 63 now and I ride FAST, not like you'd expect from someone my age. In 2012, I'll be racing in XC in SCCS. Not too bad for a 63yo right?
Riding and being able to keep pace with others half my age keeps me feeling young.
