    That does not sound good I do know from experience that as we get older we do not fix as well as when younger I do hope all goes well for you and your bike

    Nothing but love,prayers and respect. Especially for those of you that have the desire to get back on. Heal first and well, the scooter will wait for you. Of course, keep us posted. Some of us will learn as you build.

    Reading the few posts over the past couple of days on here, just brings it closer to home about Ride like you're invisible.

    Tonight alone, in my small town. On two separate incidents, 1 of our biker brothers lost his life (a wife and daughter left behind) and another was Life Flighted away. Just makes me sick to my stomach.

    Looking at the number of members and guests on here, you know it's riding season.

    Brothers and Sisters, old and new, please, be safe, ride smart, cagers don't give love taps. God Bless y'all.

    Sorry to hear about your accident. It sounds rather extension, but you'll no doubt recover quickly and be back on the road before you know it. Hang in there.

    Kenny sorry to hear about your misfortune. The wife and I will send out a prayer request for your speedy recovery. Keep your spirits up, your Bob will probably be fixed before the bones heal. About a month ago the car I was driving was hit by a tractor trailer. The point is the car is fixed already, but my neck and head are still messed up. I still ride but limit most of my riding to group rides until my head gets unscrambled. Keep the faith, heal and ride again soon.
