    Potocals a weird thing, Rides. Don't think I need members in any club if it means giving away what took so long. Good to finally be who I'm supposed to be. Still a working on myself, though. Ride tough, man! Peace!



    I'm with you on that Lelia--when we compromise something just to remain in existance we compromise our own being

    i've not had the same battle as you have but still have had a battle and no matter what our battles are we are always or should be working on SELF and i would say from your posts you are on the positive side

    may the wind always be with you

    Clean and sober for 12 years. I thank God for getting me through the previous drunken 29 years. These sober 12 have been the best years of my life. Ride safe, brothers and sisters!!

    Pretty much all my riding buddies are sober. A few AMC and couple of 1%ers... but C&S. Seems like the only drunks I ride with anymore are family.

    Well Howdy !
    yes it is the picture! It took me 3 days to warm up from the ride home,LMAO! I still see most of them and went on the 9/11 ground zero ride with some of them. Those are my NA riding buddies.
    I punked out and relapsed on the smokes today...Had too much tension stress, with a death in the family...The overall quitting experience was not bad and it took the fear of trying to quit away!
    I suppose that sounds like a wimp,,....but its what I did...

    Chelle...contact the Harley dealerships Rider's Edge Director.

    About a month ago, the Rider's Edge course had a 'woman only' class and I was invited (as a former student) to come talk about experiences, blah blah blah.

    Anyway, another woman, I didn't know came to share her stories also. She brought her husband who was also her interpreter. Her name is Patricia.

    Patricia can't hear or speak. It had been a life long dream to ride on her own. She was tired on being a backrest, as she put it.

    About 2 years ago, she signed up for Rider's Edge, brought her husband, and THEN surprised them with her disabilities! The instructors had to decide what to do. They said THEY would not be responsible for taking away someones dream...so they pressed on with the class.

    Patricia said she fell and fell and fell all weekend on the bike. She just kept getting up, sometimes crying, but was determined to do it. By the end of the weekend, she said the whole class was cheering her on, some with tears of happiness of their own for her.

    She rides now, on her own, but only with her husband behind her. He made her some special mirrors so she could see damn near all the way around her. He said she is a much better rider than he, because she is so alert. Eyes darting from one side to the other constantly, keeping her eyes on those around her at all times. He said she has yet to drop her bike or have any sort of incident. Again, it's been about 2 years now.

    Patricia is probably one of the most beautiful people I know. Her enthusiasm for riding is so contagious.

    You can do it Chelle. It may take you longer, and it may be a little harder to grasp, but it can be done. It is a sight to behold to see Patricia take off on her bike. Looking all over, keeping her husband close behind, and a huge smile on her face.
