8 weeks agoI stop in to see Trip last summer but it was during the week and he wasn`t home. I didn`t have anything to write with to leave a note. I forgot the EOD was up there now. The phone number he gave me was disconnected, but that`s not out of the ordinary for him. He has given me many numbers over the years.

8 weeks agoHey Gib, I have heard from Trip several times here lately, by email. He is doing ok but he is layed off from work right now. So he should be around home a lot . I do not have a good phone number for him myself, have called the one I had lot`s of times with no luck. So I finally quit calling. The last time we communicated by email was close to two weeks ago, so, I know he is still kicking, he also sent me a couple of pics of the chopper he is building.
8 weeks agoHellcat, I`ve been up here since August. Got a year and a half or so yet to go. Let me know if you plan on a trip. I get down there once in a while. We have a few events to go to down there and I plan on being I Phoenix for AZ Bike Week/Cave Creek Bike week in April.
8 weeks agoVT/HellCat,
Trip breaks a lot of phones. He gets one every other month it seems. I`m not sure that I even have his new number. I stop by every Saturday to visit. We should`ve gone for a good ride but schedules never seem to match. Done some short putt stuff/
His Chop is coming along nicely. Should be ready for paint by spring I hope.
8 weeks agoLast time I talked to him he had a girl friend. He did send me some pic`s of the chopper. Was looking pretty good.
EOD-I will be at bike week the night ZZ Top is playing. Let me know a I`ll take a ride with you or meet you in Cave Creek.
8 weeks agoVT/HellCat-Just saw Trip today. Visited for a couple hours I guess. Told him y`all mentioned him. Still has the OL. Not sure how that`s going right now.
HellCat, he said he will try to remember to drop you a line. Yeah, that would be great. The only ****ty part is having to ride the 90 miles home once it cools off. Nearly 20F cooler up here than in the valley. Sometimes more. Looking forward to it though. Once it get`s closer we`ll have to hook up. I still have the same number, but you may not have it anymore.
8 weeks agoDave, glad you got to see him, I would love to ride out that way, but I do not know when I will ever be able to make that trip again. Especially now that I am having this sciatica stuff going on. Yep like I said earlier it has been about 2 weeks since I heard from Trip via email. I sent him and email yesterday and told him to come on back and join us here, that some of us were trying to get this place started again.
8 weeks agoVT, it might be a tough trip. too many hours of riding. I know he`s been on the go. I`m sure he`ll get back with y`all. I don`t see him back on here though.
8 weeks agoHey Yall!! Can the GIRLS come along?
8 weeks agoGlad to hear he is doing good. I will get up there this summer and stop in to see him. EOD I will let ya know when that is so maybe we can sit and talk awhile.
8 weeks agoYes, Brian. The girls can come along!LOL
Hellcat, sure, if for some reason we can`t meet up for bike week or something I`d be happy to see you up here.
8 weeks agoJust checking in, not much going on here, been raining off and on all day. I took myself off of that gabapentin medicine they had me on for the sciatica. I have not taken any for about 36 hours so far and the back and leg have not started hurting again. The schitt has some bad side effects one is swelling and numbness. I was having both in my lower left leg and my foot, It was swelled way too much , was feeling very uncomfortable, so I just quit taking that stuff. I am hoping the back is getting better. I also had gained about 13 lbs. and I did not need that, I already lost 3 lbs. in the past 24 hours. I was hed my bike yesterday morning and rode a little bit , somewhere around 40 miles, it was threatening rain so I did not go far from home. You guys have a good one will catch you later.
