February 15, 2017Our snow has melted and the temps are in the 50s. We have a ton of gravel on the roads but it`s goof to be out in the wind again. How are y`all doing? Getting out or still have snow?

February 15, 2017WooHooo! 64* today. a bunch of wind but nice. How`s everyone elses riding?
February 19, 2017Yaaaaa Hooooo
Got the staples out of my back yesterday. Doc said try to wait 6 weeks before you start riding again. Hell, at this time I can`t get my leg over the seat anyway, but I can feel my back loosening up. This 6 weeks will be the longest time I`ve gone without riding since..... hell, I can`t remember how long ago.
February 19, 2017Hey Screwball. I hope your back gets better soon. I just had the nerves in my back burnt out so it won`t hurt so much. I feel your pain. Get back in the wind soon!
February 21, 2017Winter forgot us here in Myrtle Beach. We had one week of weather below 60degF. I`ve been over at our local college watching the softball games in 68 to 78 weather the last two weekends. Wonderful. Get all the riding in you can cause some day you`ll be like me, 74 and legs don`t work good enough to ride. No 3 wheelers for me. My Vette is enough fun still.
February 21, 2017We`ve had a semi-mild winter so far. A bunch of snow but gone down here. I`m not complaining!
February 21, 2017Kind of felt the same way. Wife `triked` 2009 after a bad bout with cancer. she was so happy to get back in the `openness` of a motorcycle she didn`t care if there was a second wheel on the back. When my back and hips hurt too much to hold up my Ultra or Dyna I knew it was time to quit.... until I took her Tri-Glide for a long ride. Miss the leaning, gutter running, lane splitting or occasional jaunt on the sidewalk, but still have the wind in my face, bugs in my teeth. At 72 I figure I`ve still got a couple of years yet on a tricycle.
February 21, 2017Damn screwball, if you have to ride a trike, ride on. No reason to give up the wind. I`d like to think that most folks would give you a pass anyway. Those that don`t, phuck-em. Enjoy what you can while you can. Don`t worry about what "WE" think. You and the OL deserve the ride, IMO of course.
February 21, 2017ArTi, you`re going to have to win the lotto or something and get to riding. That`s an itch that you have to scratch.
February 23, 2017SB - you and the wife need to keep on gettin` on as long as you can. Enjoy!!!!!
February 23, 2017I agree, McG. A guy has to do something liberating or maybe life isn`t worth living. I would literally be lost without riding. Sad I guess, but it`s my thing.
