LDF - adding my best wishes for a speedy and full recovery. Your Möbius adv has been a great story to follow these last few years - both you and Doc have tremendous style.

It's so good to hear from you LDF!
We hope you get back to your regular routine real soon. I'll be thinking about you two as I cross some of the routes we rode together on M8 & M9.

Wow!!!

So glad your ok Francine! Take your time and work it through. Its only life, no need to sweat it. Laugh at the absurdity of how the gray matter works and heals.
Its nice to hear the events from your perspective. Thanks for taking the time and effort to share them with us.
You and your recovery are in my prayers.

Return to work

In short, my abscence from posting is directly related to recently returning to my place of employment. After 3 months of rehab including speech, occupational, vestibular (for dizziness) therapy, my physician finally gave me the go ahead to get back in the swing of life.

Upon exiting his office, he did declare one BIG exception: stay off the motorcycle for a year. How's that going to work for me?

I'm not taking my injury lightly, but you can only imagine how that thought feels. He of course can not even fathom how I would have any interest in getting back on my bike to begin with.

In the end, my expression must have spoke volumes because he did eventually compromise to staying off the bike until "all your symptoms have completely gone away".

.......Theyyyy'rrrre gon...nn...ne .



and I am in training for the next segment of this journey.

Im starting out slow. Got the east coast bike out of winter storage a week ago and recently swung my leg over her to go around the block. All with the back-up support of no other then my "Rock".

This is a huge accomplishment for me and comes with the backing of round trip air fare to "the scene". Las Vegas here we come.

See you in September.
