Not that bad. Still upright.
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

An XT500 was my first bike after a few years without a bike when my kids were young. I had great fun on mine in the forests around where I live. One thing led to another and after a couple of years I was racing enduros on modern machinery. Great bikes in their day and really easy to work on.

Here's me on my DR350, ( when I had it ), trying to look like I know what I'm doing.
Clearly I've failed. Nothing like your picture mind.

Unless it's got two wheels and an engine slung in the middle, I'm not interested.
