Member Info: I''ve been blessed over the past many years of owning and riding a variety of bikes ,there are still a few I''d like to have but probably never will and some I''d just like to try.Unfortunately a battle with cancer has left me unable to ride most days but I still get out occassionally.I''m saddened that this has happened at this stage in my life as I finally have the kind of bikes that I''ve been wanting and the time to make the trips I''d like to do but am not fit enough to do it now. I''ve met many good friends along the way , some still with me others passed on.Riding introduces you to a group of people and a sense of community the driving a car never will. I wouldn''t change a day of it.
