Schnappi, I'm so sorry to read this. How scary!

So glad you're generally ok and have tons of support....and your decision to hang it up is completely understandable.

Take care, glad you're on the mend, and thanks for the ATGATT photo reminder. The Power Rangers are onto something with the suits for sure.

Best to you!

Thanks all- back home and on the mend. The shoulder is going to take its time, ribs & lung are doing good

A good friend helped me get the bike out of impound- it only spent a week there, and some AA friends unloaded it for me- so its home too.

This experience has been a profound lesson in the effects of working the program; one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time, gratitude, staying in the moment and some form of spiritual practice helped me turn the ordeal more into practice than suffering; the dark heavily drugged and painful nights in the ICU were a trial. Sometimes self care meant just being respectful and grateful to the nurses because I couldn't do anything else, other times it mean digging deep into the pain and getting up to walk the ward and joke around with the physical therapy folks. I quit the narcotics as soon as the ICU released me which meant nights grilled by pain and not much to control it- prayer to embrace everything just as it is and to know it deeply was a rock to stand on. Alanon put the tools in my hands, without that practice to fall back on this would have been torture.

So my father's day gift is to be home with the wife and daughter, up and (carefully) moving around, see my AA/Alanon peeps and walk in and out of meetings on my own two feet, and I can work, as per the 7th tradition

Hello Bikers in recovery..!!!!

It's been awhile since anyone has come
to share in our thread and wanted to see
how you fine folks are doing today.

We are nearing the end of July and kids
will be getting ready for school next month
as i'm seeing lots of school supplies stocked
high on shelves at the stores.

For me, when kids go back to school, then
Summer has come to and end, but August
is still a Summer month with warm weather
and the height of Hurricane season which
has been quiet thus so far.

As for motorcycle riding, we still haven't
gotten on our bike yet for awhile now.
My husband has healed from his surgery
earlier this yr and we got our shade cloth
put back up and a new pool liner in after
snow took it all out last Winter.

Anyway.... other than pool exercising, changing
my eating habits cutting out all fried foods, junk
foods including, cookies, chips, candy, preservative
packed foods, just about anything unhealthy in
my food intake.

Now I eat fruits, veggies, fish, proteins, healthy
smoothies, and some healthy carbs to round out
a good days meal.

Come Aug. 11th, I will be celebrating my
28 yrs of continuous sobriety and often just
order my sobriety medallion or chip on Ebay.

A few days ago I received my order and
opened the cute little silver box to inspect
my new chip/keychain and saw that it had....
XXXVIII which is 38 yrs. OMG was my reaction.

After letting that shock set in, I settled down
and wrote to the folks that I ordered from
explaining what I received ad letting them
honestly know that I couldn't accept the 38yr
chip because I haven't earned it yet.

It wasn't long after that I received my reply
and the lady said it was her mistake and that
I could keep the 38 yr keychain to have a goal
to work towards and that the 28 yrs chip was
on its way. Yay...!!!!

Whew, 38yrs.....im not ready to celebrate that
many yrs anytime soon because that will make
me older than what I am right now.....lol So, im
staying where Im at today and look forward to
August 11th to arrive and can celebrate with
health, happiness and honesty.

Okay guys, the floor is open and you can
share whatever you'd like even if its not
motorcycles. Just let us know what's going
on where you are and how you are doing.

Congrats on 28 years, Sharon!

I haven't been out much - the new pup occupies most of my time. But, he's able to stay longer and longer in his kennel, so I'm getting some 2 hour short bike jaunts in after work, and still getting home with enough daylight to take the pup fishing, hiking or swimming. Summer is good, but BUSY! Hope everyone is enjoying it!

Thank you guys for sharing pictures of
your favorite ride and your most treasured
pet companions and friend.

I never experienced having a doggie
in my lifetime, only cats, fish, and birds,
however, I use to think and imagine
having a pup sitting In the front seat
keeping me company while running
errands.

Taking Pete for a ride with his cuteness
is definitely a chick magnet....lol

Firebolt, good to hear that you got
a new pup to bring endless joy to your
everyday life. Summer is a time for
lots of outdoor activities and having
your pup to share it with is priceless.

Thats awesome Tomsteve!

Mine is a 4 month old German Shepherd weighing in at 40 lbs right now - projected to be about 115 when full sized. So...I need to find a sidecar!!
