    With the loss of members then my former neighbor and the son of a classmate. I gave up riding, put the bike in the classifies and Thank God no-one bought it. Misery finally gave way to WTF I never planned on dying in a Nursing Home anyway, and uncovered the bike and rode today. There is no greater way to lift one's spirits than riding. What a special day riding up to St Helen's. Stopped at River dale Raceway and made 5 passes down the eighth mile. Good or not? (always ran the quarter) turned 6.991 @ 111.39 with the front wheel in the air through 3rd gear. Had a most enjoyable ride back home on the west side hwy. Going to close the bike sale ad. Conclusion, I would rather go enjoying myself, than sit around like this last six weeks miserable. PS and thanks for the advice from the folks on stretching exercises prior to riding, still sore but much better...AJ

    Welcome back Jim. Glad you decided not to add riding to your other losses. Look after yourself (leg and mind) and stay rubber side down

    This season has almost scared me out of street riding too. It's hard to not have all the losses not weigh on your mind. I'm glad your riding again and loving it. The zen of riding is like no other, at least for me. Stay safe out there.

    When I read the ad on your bike it was as if you were selling a long time friend. I'm happy for once a sale didn't go through!

    Welcome Back Jim (fyi, that was a terrible good bye thread)! :mfclap:

    Good to have you back, Jim! As someone said, "It's better to burnout than fade away!".

    I like to say, I'll give up riding when I'm dead, but even then I'll probably find a way.


    Good to see you came to your senses Jim.
