Having a very rough patch these days. My 30 year old daughter has stage 4 bone cancer. I'm learning a whole other level of powerlessness. I thank God, AA and the fellowship for carrying me and my daughter this far, one day at a time. I have placed my daughter and myself into God's hands and there is comfort in that, but sometimes I just want to scream at the unfairness of a 30 year old with terminal cancer. I would appreciate any prayers to help us through....

Hi Rarly…. I'm sorry to hear about your daughter.

Yes, there is comfort when we place people,
places and things in our Higher Powers hands
or God of our understanding.

I have done that a many a times in my own
life and a sense of peace and comfort comes
over me. Just to know that I am not alone in
whatever situation or struggles I have no
control over.

Im glad you came by to share with us knowing
that you dont have to go through this alone or
by yourself.


Continue to draw on your strength and support
from our AA program of recovery and Faith with
each new day that comes and shared with your
daughter.


The time you 2 spend together is precious
as the memories formed is a gift and blessing
to be treasured forever.

You both are in my thoughts and prayers.

My 12yr old daughter is going in for a colonoscopy and endoscopy 2-fer to try and diagnose the intestinal inflammatory problems shes been having for a couple years now. No power here, just trying to say my prayers and be the dad - I had my routine c-scope last month (clear) so at least I can make the jokes. She oughta be into Star Wars and Harry Potter or boy bands heaven help us instead of learning about anti-inflammatory drugs....

On the other hand, I have all my gear and the R6 is on the road & legal- just have to wait for the occasional warm-ish day to ride. Its a lot more comfy than I was expecting though there are some accomodations changes I want to make eventually. Feels all kinds of good to be on 2 wheels again

Prayers sent your way for your daughter
schnappi in hopes that they find and treat
what's causing her intestinal inflammatory.

12 yr olds are tougher than we know and
can bounce back quickly.


Faith from Above for strength and peace
during this time and am glad you have your
motorcycle ready for riding.


Good times ahead of you guys.

Hello SR Bikers ….. Hope everyone is doing
well.

No, I'm sorry to say, we haven't fired up the
Road King yet. It got all polished and ready
for to be fired up, then....something must have
come up and it got pushed to the back burner.

I'm sure, well, I hope that we do get it on the
road one day soon. Or as I often joke about it,
anytime before we die. Meaning, sometimes it
takes forever to get something done around here.

Anyway.....im here to share about my day.

Why? Well, I dont need to bring any of what
im about to share to bed with me. It would
definitely keep me away in thought and rob
me of a nights sleep.

Anyway, this morning was to be simple with
just a ride to Walmart to kill some time while
waiting for the Notary folks to get to their job.

Before we left, my husband reminded me to
bring my license with me for the Notary. Emmediately
a light bulb moment when I remembered my
license needed to be renewed on my birthday
and that I plum forgot about it.

We remembered that the last time we got
something in the mail that allowed us to renew
online, but didn't get anything this yr. So
we went online and sure enough they say you
cant renew there and had to go to the DMV.

Inside I copped a huge resentment that they
didn't send me something to renew online and
now I have to go sit with people I dont want to
My anxiety and resentment was hitting me
right where it hurt. In my heart.

Anyway.....stilled pissed.....we ride and go in
to find out you have to have cash. Again, unless
you carry at least 50 bucks or more in your
wallet, which we never have, we would use
our debit or credit card.

Sooooo, we walked to the grocery store
and got a little bit of cash and returned.
Sat in line till they called me. Husband
found out how much it cost and still didn't
have enough cash, so we learned the DMV
had a atm right in the place with an extra
charge to use it.

So the guy waiting on me asked me if I
wanted to add flying to my license and
I told him no. Absolutely not, no way,
then joked about besides driving, I would
be on a motorcycle.

The man turned my old lic. over and saw
my motorcycle endorsement which by then
he quote me a huge price and my husband
walked up just in time for me to tell him.

Why so much my husband asked. Then
the man said its her motorcycle endorsement.
We then explained that I dont drive one
but just ride behind as a passenger. So he
adjusted the amount and then it was where
we needed to be. Whew..!!!!

Finally got my mug shot....lol and off we went.

Sheesh.... lol

As we were riding to the Notary, I was thinking
or wondering if they had a DMV closer to where
we live that would be more convenient. So the
thought had already popped into my mind before
we got to the Notary.

Other thoughts popped into my mind while
resentful and aggravated this morning as I
drew strength from my recovery program
and faith. Why waste a minute of worrying.

I should always remember that no matter
what the situation is, I will be taken care of
always. however, I get so blinded by fears,
anger, resentments, things not going my
way, etc.

Anyway.....

We get to the Notary to get some papers
signed, finished that, then my husband commented
about just coming back from the DMV and
getting my license renewed when the man
told us that they have that service now in
their grocery store.

WHAT????? omg.....how ironic is that?????

And what did I write up top about wondering
if they had a DMV closer to where we live????

Sure enough, if that isn't our HP, God of
our understanding taking care of us at our
age. Why waste a minute of worry when
all I have to do is to remember Who is in
charge and who will guide us and protect
us and give us everything we need each
day when we place Him before all we do.

In doing so, that would eliminate my anxiety,
resentments and everything else im weak at.

Anyway....we are all good this afternoon
and Thank God we now know what to do
when it's time to get our lic. renewed.

Thank you for letting me share.

I think if Dante was writing these days he would have included DMV's in Purgatory... a buddy of mine clued me in to going to a Tag and Title service- TOTALLY worth it even though they get a few $ from the deal. I don't know if they can do license stuff however... They will have to drag me kicking and screaming into a DMV again for future vehicle services.

Daughter is diagnosed with crohnes, working up a treatment regime. Its a bummer but its also a relief because we have a path forward.. I know a guy with chronic inflammation and digestion issues, undiagnosed and no effective treatment for years now. @RH I hope you call get some good news in the new year...

Thanks for sharing schnappi and I'm sorry to hear
that about your daughter. With proper treatment
that is available then hopefully the results will be
positive ones for both of you and all those involved.

Stay strong and positive as you both move forward.

Hey Bikers in recovery, friends far and near.

Remember, if you want to share, it doesn't have
to be strictly on motorcycles, okay? Which means,
if all of us pulled up a chair and sat in a circle or
we sat around a table or just gathered outside
a garden area and some one began talking about
their day or what's been going on that maybe
weighing heavy on their minds, then to me that
would be what I would hope happens here. Okey dokey?

So the floor is open.

I'll begin by sharing that one of my neighbors just
recently passed away from a possible seizure. I dont
know this women very well, but do know she had
a mentally challenged daughter she was caring
for.

The house next door has had quite a few tenants
over the yrs, and just 2 since I got married 10 yrs
ago to my husband and moved in with him. He has
lived in this house a long time and knows all those
who lived next door.

Anyway.....

This woman we believe has had some health
problems and surgeries and could have been
in recovery. We just cant confirm that. But did
share with my husband about back pain and a
slip of the tongue about recovery meetings.

Anyway.....

We saw cars and trucks in her driveway
yesterday and that was when my husband
while working outside yesterday decided
to go ask next door what was going on and
learned the women must have died before
Christmas.

Last night after I went to bed, I layed there
thinking about all that we went thru with the
neighbor next door. See, their driveway runs
right up our bedroom window where our bed
is.

Over the yrs my husband has had stories of
each person that has lived in that house. Some
are quite funny with one speaking Chinese or
Japanese with his family and all their cars driving
up and down the driveway.

Anyway.....

Shortly after this woman moved in their
house about 4 or 5 yrs ago, my husband
installed us a little A/C window unit to drum
out the noise of her dog barking in the
middle of the night or firecrackers during
the holidays.

I dont know, it kinda feels strange that
this woman passed away at her age from
a seizure and have questions swirling
around in my head. She had to be in her
late 40's or early 50's.

Her mom lives on the other side of her
and believe she helped her with her
daughter as well as some kind of a
health worker who came everyday to
also help.

Right now there are men next door
fixing up the house to get it ready to
sell. And there is a pile of stuff from
the house already at the curb for trash
pick up.

It's like here today gone tomorrow. You
see or hear folks next door one minute
then they are completely gone the next.
Just not around anymore. Kinda sad and
eerie feelings going on with me.

Now, we wait to see who will be next to
move in. For me, im not a fan of anyone
living so close to me, but what else can I
do but accept it and pray that we will be
blessed with quiet folks.

Okay, this is my second time to write
what's been going on with me, deleting
the first one yesterday think that no one
will be interested in that, but just needed
to share and get it off my mind and say.....

I need a friend right now.

Okay....next person to share.

And here I am stuck with myself. My thoughts,
my actions, wondering. Yep, it's all part of life
and recovery.

Did I do everything to the best of my human
moral ability to be kind to my lady neighbor?
No, I didn't. As sad as it sounds. Yes, im guiity
for not being the best sober person I could
have been to her and to my other next door
neighbor either.

I'm not sure why I act and behave like I
do sometimes. Is it because of my up bringing,
learning to be cautious of strangers. Not
letting everyone and his neighbor know all
about our business.

With all the physical, verbal abuse I sustained
as a child to the time I left home at 18, I was
taught to keep quiet about it all. To not make
a sound. To hold it all in.


I can be nice to folks but it has to be at a
distance. Im cool with my neighbors across
the street because they are not next door.


They can be seen and not heard.

I knew this lady next door had problems,
mentally maybe, physically maybe, medical
issues which may have carried over to her
daughter who is also mentally and physically
challenged.

I suppose I didn't want to get involved with
that situation next door. It was none of my
business. Now, my husband who is a kind,
caring soul, know about being cordial to neighbors.

He just knows how to keep the peace with
everyone.

He even allowed her to walk into our backyard
to see our garden of paradise one day and I got
angry about having a stranger even tho she was
a neighbor, enter my space, my sanctuary.


How rude of me to behave so terrible. Right?

Now I have to live with my actions.

I went outside a few minutes ago and nosily
peered over our backyard fence to see hers.
To remember how she had birthday parties,
swim parties or BBQ's with her family invited
over.


I think she was a kind soul but could have
been sick with maybe addiction. Maybe she
had real pain and didn't now how to deal
with it.

Maybe she went to AA for awhile, maybe
NA....I just dont know except for her mentioning
it to my husband that guys from her AA meeting
came to replace her pool liner.


She's gone now and it's saddening in
a way. I think she had struggles all along
the way and tried to live the best she knew
how. Married once, divorced, raising a challenged
daughter, and trying to make ends meet.

Now I wonder if she drank over meds
she was on for her pain that would cause
her seizure and end her life at an early
age.

We saw her at times when she lost a good
bit of weight and looked ill. Then she got
better....maybe she went into rehab. I dont'
know. Now, im left with all these emotions
and questions in my mind and heart.


I know time will heal and these emotions
will subside over time. Anyway....I just needed
to share whats on my mind, to get it out
and hopefully there will be a lesson I need
to learn with all this.

Until then, im extremely grateful for my
recovery program and Faith that allows
me to remain teachable and sober on my
journey in life and recovery.

As I sit here this afternoon, I can hear them
loading the back of a pickup truck with im
guessing more of her stuff from her shed,
bbq grills, and who know what all she had
stored.

It just so sad.

I think id feel different if this woman physically
moved out of her house, but sad in this situation
because she died.

Now im left with memories of her from the
last 5 or more yrs.

Today I thought about how she had someone
come to the house late one evening dropping
off a pile of logs for her fireplace. Here I was
getting ready for bed and right outside our bedroom
window the truck pulls in backwards and unloads
the wood from the back making all this noise I
was familiar with.

Im sure these guys or men that have been in
the house this week have a big task with cleaning
up, repairing damage, replacing carpet, tile, wood,
etc. as it gets ready for the market to sell.

We pass in front of her house and we see
big bushes that have been dig up and put
out for garbage, pulled up carpet, mattresses,
upholstered chairs.....

Just sad to see which was once someones
belongings is now out at the curb.

If the bushes weren't so huge, I thought
about taking them in, but my husband
said they were to big for our yard. And
then I knew she planted a Rose Bush
but I see that it is still in its place.

May she rest in peace now, I pray.

Not all seizures are caused by using... might be she was really sick and died sober. I hope so anyhow.

I have good news trash. I'm helping an alanon friend in her 60's with back problems clean out her basement; pulled at least 3 pickup loads of junk out of there, old tv's, broken packrat stuff her addict ex left stashed everywhere. Feels pretty good to get that trash cleared out.

Last playdate over there she gave me cookies

I thought about that too schnappi. Thinking
that she was possibly that sick or ill and got
weak and had a seizure and wasn't strong enough
to hang on. Hoping she was sober/clean tho.

My dad passed recently from a stroke and
thoughts of how it happened crossed my mind.
Questions I may never get answered because
of my estrangement with family.

Did someone in the family tick him off
enough to cause his heart to elevate or
was he ready to meet our Lord after living
life to the fullest and the stroke was maybe
the easiest softest way to pass peacefully.

Anyway..... sometimes life and death situations
are not always easy to deal with, sadly.

Im glad you are helping someone in need
and that clearing away the clutter is a huge
accomplishment with yummy cookies on top.

How are you healing from your own past injuries?

On facebook I have the Sturgis Rally liked so that
I can get updates on what's happening up there
and just read...…

216 days until the 79th #SturgisRally... but who’s counting?

Feeling good, the healed shoulder joint now has a tendency to pop a little when working out so I've reduced the weight and move more slowly so it doesn't. No prizes for hurting oneself. Also trying out other exercises that work the shoulders differently or not as much. There is no pain or soreness but I sure don't want to aggravate anything.

Weather and schedule have conspired to almost completely eliminate riding since early December. I have a bunch of suspension changes to test, the prev owner had fairly bizarre shock and fork settings. Might be able to ride a couple days next week, at least a bit.

I would love to ride around up in SD but the biker party thing doesn't appeal to me. OTOH the "deal" around here now is that I give up the week-long solo trips all over the place and reduce commuter riding, a compromise.. we'll see about bigger trips later on, I cannot dictate things. After my drama I owe the family some changes to be sure. On the positive side the family was enthusiastic about riding lessons; there are many outfits that offer coached track days on rented equipment, so I can maybe do that in the spring instead of the trip.

Glad to hear that you are mending well schnappi.
Slowly but surely and before you know it, you'll
be a good as can be.

It reminds me of when my husband and I got
out to ride on our new Road King back in about
2009 after selling his Sportster. It is a much bigger
bike for sure and then to add 2 folks that are
not itty bitty people.

Anyway, we were trying to do a turn around
in a parking lot when we felt it leaning more
than it should, so, in a quick haste to get off
quickly and not end up under the bike, my foot
caught something and I ended up slamming
myself to the ground knocking the wind out
of me.

More so that I couldn't catch my breath.

It was such a force that all I could do was
just lay there and not move. Eventually
I came too and was able to stand, but it
wasn't until later that something didn't
feel right in my hip and leg.


For months I went on about my business,
going to work, working out in the pool
and walking with pain hoping it would go
away or work its way out.


Even with the pain, I took a motorcycle
training class and made it all the way to
the last day when I absolutely couldn't
finish it as surprisingly as it might sound.

There was nothing left inside me that
could push past the excruciating pain
to help me ride that last ride. I was toast
by that time.

The pain eventually got me to the doctors
for xrays and low and behold they said I had
a fracture in my hip bone and would need
a hip replacement. ouch..!!!!


Fast forward, I had a successful surgery
and in months doing what was necessary
to heal properly I completed the riding test
and got my endorsement. Yay..!!!!

However, I realized that riding alone
wasn't to be and that I absolutely enjoy
riding behind my husband on a day ride
as well as those trips to Sturgis, Grand
Canyon and Daytona thru every type of
weather Mother Nature thru at us.

We are not into the partying scene either
or staying out late riding the road or being
in the mist of loud rowdy crowds. In fact
just riding to see the scenery and being
outside under the sun and having the wind
blow around us.

Just simply amazing with us and the road.

Sturgis or Daytona was magical when
riding in a sea of other bikers coming
to and from, up and down the hills, some
giving us a hi sign, thumbs up, nods.....seeing
and hearing all the sights and sounds of
a motorcycle rally.

I know many go for the music and bands,
but for us those would start late at night
when folks are pretty wired up, which
would have been cool back in the day
when in our drinking days, but recovery
and sobriety, for me, serenity and sobriety
are top priority and being in the mist
of drinker or users is not our cup of tea.

Now riding to Mt. Rushmore or seeing
other historic sights or just riding and
stopping along the way to enjoy the moment
of where we are is priceless.

Anyway.....

Riding courses are always available to newcomers
as well as veterans because keeping the rules of
the road fresh all the time is important for safety
and enjoyment when riding.

Remain teachable in life and sobriety
helps us be the best responsible person
we can be in all areas of our life.

Can we get a drum roll here

Hark, can you hear it? Our Road King has been
started up and I'm hearing it from my living room
recliner.


Yep, my husband has started our bike. Is he
thinking about wanting to ride? Well, I am
getting a nod from him.

He just came in and I asked him what that
noise was and he said it was the sound of a
bear waking up from hibernation.


Roaring and hungry to tear up the roads.


Okay guys, ive heard this before and have
gotten so excited to ride then ….nothing
would happen and Winter was here.

Now, we are nearing Spring and warmer
weather ahead of us....I want to get excited
but I have my reservation and can only wait
for him to say.....

Riders Up..!!!!! WAIT.....that's
not the right ride....lol Nope, that's the
wrong one too....

We need a Road King Trike picture here.

Riding when I can, Feb weather here tends to be dreadful with the odd good day mixed in. Bike is in good shape, comfort is increasing as I get used to it. Suspension is in a reasonable place so it holds but doesn't get harsh at speed. Holy crap does the R6 scoot though... 80mph quick as you like. Holding off on a ton till I get out away onto the clear highways. It heats up quickly in stop & go, so have to keep a bit of attention on the the engine temp. I don't have a good solution yet for luggage though, I like to carry raingear, jumper cables, basic tools etc... but the soft bags tend to be hideously ugly on a crotch rocket. There are provisions on the frame to mount supports I can fashion, but would like to find a set that doesn't look too horrible. Tailbags are prone to catching feet when mount/dismounting, so I shelved plans along those lines.

Kickstands up you slackers
