Topic: Come Sit and Share Biker's Thread. How Is Your Day?


to all Men and Women who love
motorcycles. SR members in recovery who
need a place to sit and share how their day
is going or whatever is on your mind.

Grab a cup of coffee, , pull up a chair,
and lets join together in some good conversations
about your motorcycles, recovery, work, talents,
favorite trips, beliefs, family, friends, music, or just
whatever comes to mind.

A simple would be just as good even
if you own a motorcycle or not but just love
them. All are welcome to join in if ud like.

The more the merrier.

We too are dipping to low temps around
28....brrrrrr....lol

I have all that I needed to wrap in my
garden to keep from damaging with
low tempts tonight and tomorrow nite.

We haven't taken our bike out for a ride
since March when we rode to Daytona. So
we are much over due for that ride. Now
that Winter is just about here, me may still
want to wait till next yr, for our next Daytona
trip.

We are still tweeking things on the bike
with a larger fuel take already installed
and a new fairin that will play music for
us. Now since my husband replaced his
old computer chair with a new one, I asked
him if he could use the old seat and back
for me to use as my back seat on our bike....lol

Hmmmmm, it maybe more comfortable
than what im using now....lol He told me
that we should just put a rocking chair like
Granny sits on at the top of their truck on
the Beverly Hillbilllies....lol

Sharon,
I love your heart sister!!

Well, what can I say?... Old man winter has settled in up here in the Northeast. His long white beard has wrapped itself around us like an old itchy army blanket. I absolutely refuse to winterize my motorcycles beyond making sure the fuel tanks are full, putting in a little dry gas and hooking up my battery mates. I'll still pick my days and ride for the rest of the year.
Our (DW and I) first ride of the winter will be on Christmas Eve. She puts on her Santa hat and I put on my Grinch hat and we ride all over the greater Augusta (ME) area. I also try to go for a ride on New Years Eve as well. Nothing too long, just 75-100 miles. After that my DW is usually done until well into the spring. So I top her tank back off, little more fuel stabilizer and back on the batter mate.
As for me, I try to get out and ride at least once a week for as long as I can tolerate the cold. I'll do that pretty much through the winter, as long as the roads are dry, and as long as I can safely get up and down the driveway. Don't like riding in slush. Had to do that in the mtns coming back from out west many years ago. Wasn't fun... My next door neighbors must think I'm crazy and I may very well be. But, I don't care I love it. One year we had a lot of ice in our driveway. The weather kept warming up enough to rain and then drop back and freeze. I ended up putting 120# of ice-melt on my driveway with a grass seed spreader. Then I went out there with a spade and broke up the ice. I managed to clear a 3' path all the way down my driveway.
This year I just got some new insulated bibs to wear this winter.
The other thing I love to do is to ride to a meeting in the winter. It was either last year or the year before, and I thought I was being sly by riding my bike in the end of Jan. I got to the meeting and there were two other bikes there. After the meeting we ended up riding into town and getting a cup of coffee together. You know, the meeting after the meeting. PRICELESS!!
To get on topic, how's my day? Well, its getting better by the moment. Because we are one day closer to spring!!
Thank you Sharon B. for attempting to resurrect a long dying thread. Lets me know that I'm not alone on here. There are still some dye-hards out there.

Resurrection Sharon sharing....

We had an AA meeting in Mtn Grove Mo. that over the few years that it was around became smaller and smaller. We decided to close the meeting because at many times nobody would show up. Then one day there was this lady who could not attend the evening meetings and asked if she could open the meeting again on Friday at noon. We supported her in this and little by little the meeting grew. That was 5 years ago. Last Friday when I attended the meeting there were 20 in attendance which is very good for a small community. The lady who resurrected the meeting has since passed, but will live on as the lady who brought the meeting back to life.......When the meeting started we named it after something an old southern Missouri AA said at the end of each talk "It jes keeps gettin' gooder".

11 degrees this morning here in southern mo.....for those who ride in this winter weather be sure and check your tire pressure.

Thanks for sharin' Sharon........toad the tet vet

Brothers and Sister Bikers in Recovery.

Just as it is when we attend our AA meetings
they ask us to pause for a moment of silence
proceeded by repeating the AA Preamble that
goes like this and never hurts us to refresh it
in our memories. Right?

A.A. PREAMBLE

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship
of men and women who share their
experience, strength and hope with
each other that they may solve their
common problem and help others to
recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership
is a desire to stop drinking. There are
no dues or fees for AA membership;
we are self-supporting through our
own contributions. AA is not allied
with any sect, denomination, politics,
organization or institution; does not
wish to engage in any controversy;
neither endorses nor opposes any
causes. Our primary purpose is to
stay sober and help other alcoholics
to achieve sobriety.


Now let's have some fun

Thanks Chris Captainzing, Tony B, and Toad
for sharing your thoughts of your days with us.
From Missouri, to Maine, to Chicago all the
way down to Baton Rouge, La. we find out
how the weather is, to road trips, to getting
and keeping our bikes running smoothly and
safely during weather changes.

And to keep what's important like fellowship,
camaraderie and support as we sit around
in a circle sharing our own ESH - experiences,
strengths and hopes of what our lives were and
is like before, during and after alcohol or drugs
and addiction.

Okay, let's have fun folks. and remember,
you don't have to own a motorcycle to join
in. We never turn away those looking for
fellowship and support in recovery whether
it be in the rooms of bikers, doctors, lawyers,
moms, dads, students, etc.

All Are Welcome.

There you go eric1212....Welcome and
Thank you for coming in to sit a spell
with a warm cup of cocoa, tea or coffee
to share with us.

Those that have learned how to stay
sober a day at a time can share the
joy there is in riding or sailing sober
or clean.

There will be a natural high feeling
and a freedom to experience in doing
what we love without being under the
influence of a drug or poison.

Stay close to those who have paved
the way for us to follow in recovery
so that we can be healthy, happy and
honest in all areas of our daily life.

Come back anytime to share or say hello
and let us know how you are doing.

We were at 11" this morning. Little colder then I care to ride in. I need to invest in a better pair of gloves. I got a leather pair of military issue gloves and they hold up to around lower 30's.

Anyone use heated gloves??

Sorry Chris, I don't have any experience
in using heated gloves which I'm sure are
a well worth it investment.
This past March when we rode to Daytona
it was still kinda chilly on the road. No, it
was down right coooold....lol Maybe it was
because I wore leather pants with no isulation
underneath it. Same with the gloves. I figured
that the heavy leather would hold out the cold
and I would stay warm.

Boy was I wrong. What I needed was something
thermal underneath my pants and inside my gloves.
Soooooo, I will be better prepared with more thermal
wearing clothes for riding for comfort and warmth.

Now for my day, it is absolutely beautiful sunny
day and a tad cool in the low 50's. Tonight will
be 28ish low. Brrrrrr.

After watching Granny burn rubber after
spotting some little green men next door
at the Drysdales thinking they were Martians lol
we headed out to the bird store to get our
outdoor birds their Christmas Present.

We bought one of those seeded snowmen
like one of those seed bells you see in the
store. Well, the snowman is shaped with
safflower seeds which are white and had
fruit for eyes, nose and buttons.

The birds will absolutely luv it.

Our next stop was to a Statuary place
looking for a concrete cross or one of
Jesus. I already have the Blessed Virgin
Mary statue in my backyard looking over
us and she is so pretty. Ive been looking
for awhile for the right Jesus statue but
nothing caught my eyes until today.

They will put the finishing touches to it
and we'll pick Him up on Friday. What a
Joy it will be to have another beautiful
statue in my backyard as a constant reminder
of Who is incharge on my life and I am
blessed to have Him guiding me all along the
way in my recovery journey.

Hope you guys are enjoying ur Tuesday.

Besure to drop in anytime, sit a spell
and share your day with us. If you need
any suggestions or help we will all try to
chip in with sharing our own experiences,
strengths and hopes to the best of our abilities.

I no longer ride (on) a bike. It's been 13 years. But I have a sort of romantic story to share about my first husband. Had two--- divorced the second one..now back to my story.

About 20 years ago (I'm getting up there huh? or should I say "am there")
I was walking in the park and this guy (16 years my senior) drove by and waved He asked if I would like to go out. We went on a few dates then one night, out of the blue, I told him I would love to ride a Harley. Don't even ask me how we got on the conversation of bikes ect.

The guy must have been crazy for me because he showed up at my house riding a Harley the next day Married 1 year later

I got to go to Helmet Roasts, Poker Runs, Toys for Tots, We rode the bike in Florida (where his parents lived). The marriage ended, but the memories are fantastic No regrets

That's a cool or romantic riding story
you shared with us airwick. Thank you...!!!!

I have to agree that there is something
intreging, captivating, exciting, even
romantic about either seeing someone
riding a motorcycle or sharing a ride
with another.

I guess in my own life, I stayed busy with
motherhood and marriage for the better
part of my life until I divorced and remarried
a few yrs or so ago or when I turned 50. At
that time when I met my now husband and
saw his Harley Sporster, I guess I got the
riding bug and couldn't wait to take off on
a new and exciting adventure in my life.

Never did I ever imagine going to 2 large
motorcycle rallies they have each yr riding
amongst many many other riders all in the
same area. AND most of all, enjoying it sober.

I thought for sure we would be caught up
in all the drunkin festivities around us and
wondered if temptation would bite me. However,
we were so caught up in experiencing the
joy of seeing so many unbelieveable styles
of motorcycles and their riders.

Maybe like attending a Mardi Gras Ball with
lots of costumes and masks, but here we have
motorcycles dancing around, riding around
the dance floor, around Sturgis, Daytona.

Whether we ride with a loved one holding
on tight, sharing the joy of riding free in
the wind on a big motor engine with 2 wheels
or like us 3 , , it's all wonderfully good with
many road experiences that we will treasure
forever.

And NO ONE can EVER take that away
from us.

Glad yer here!!!
I stopped riding about 12 or so years before I got sober. The reason? I scared the crap out of myself drunk and high on coke and chose to stop riding so I could drink without that fear. Yup....extremely insane!!
But 2 years into recovery, in 2007, a friend of mine who was storing his and his wife's bikes in my garage for the winter stopped by to pick up his,ride it home and change all the fluids( an awesome Yamaha roadster) and told me to get on his wife's and ride it over to do the same(mint condition 96 virago).
NOPE!!!! NO WAY!!!! Ummm, I got to much work to do around here!!,
He knew I was Liebig and was afraid. He knew my thinkin was I get on a bike and I'm gonna drink.
Next day he comes over, tosses me a helmet and says," I ain't leaving til you get on that bike and ride."
15 minutes on it and I was in awe. I never experienced riding completely
Stone cold sober and I was just in awe.
We put a crapload of miles under the tires that day and ended up in possession of a near mint 98 Suzuki intruder 1400 for an unbelievable price about 2 months down the road.
I still get some serious attitudes of gratitude while riding,remembering where I came from and thanking God I am sober and doing it.
So Eric, ya get and stay sober you just may find a new freedom on the road,too!
But, the riding season has been over for a bit here. I actually
Rocrastinated a wee bit putting Nadine away for the winter. Got her all winterized and wrapped up last Friday. And, about
par for the course with me, it was after I had her all wrapped u
Snuggle I remembered I forgot to take the battery out. But she's in hibernation for the winter.
She's gonna get some work in the spring. I gotta put new throttle and sinc cab.e on her, tear down the carbs and clean em out as she was runnin a lil weird at the end of the season, and I think I'm gonna look into some different turn signals( I put some cat eye signals on a few years ago but it seems people don't see em on), more brake light, and do run,turn, brake lights on the back. Also some extra light up front.

As for my day here, I think it topped out at about 23 today. Lookin into some heat for the shop-in-a-garage at this new residence. I like to do woodworking and tinker and don't like to do it whilst my fingers are purple!!,

Forgive me for any typos...iPad things all I got at this time and not used to typing on it

Crazy as it seems....yeah


There was a sixteen year age difference, but it didn't bother either of us at the time. Then we slowly drifted apart.

He moved to Florida, remarried, retired. I don't regret one single moment I spent with him, and I wish him the best.

With him it was "ask and I shall receive". Got me a little spoiled....5 years later I see the real world, been it it for 13 years-- Not so sure it I like it yet lol

Riding on the bike was fantastic. I remember when we went through the preserves and got stuck in the mud. Since I didn't know how to ride----and me trying to be helpful in our crisis. I knew I really wasn't helping, but I got behind the bike and tried to push. Well we got unstuck, but when the tires spinned all the mud went on me. I looked pretty sad on the back of the Harley all covered in mud. I did eventually get cleaned up. Wouldn't give the
experience for the world.

I really don't enjoy what riding does to the hair though lol
