The theft of my trike due to alcohol Riding Sober

    Hi all, Trike girl here. I loved reading your posts. I am clean & sober as well. I had a slip after 12-years clean time (this was a while back) and as a result of that slide, my beloved custom trike was stolen and chopped. It was a rude awakening, a lesson hard learned. Now I am back doing the meetings and working the Steps with my sponsor. Life is good again. I hope to have another trike built next Summer. I was very fortunate that nothing horrendous happened to me. Loosing the trike was a real blow, but at least I am here to talk about it. It's amazing what a slip can do. It feels wonderful to be right squarely back on track again.

    It is good to hear you are back in recovery. I have seen it a lot and I know it can be hard at times. I hope you are doing well.

    Hey Trike girl call me Art. I don't know what is up with the photos I posted. They didn't post so I re posted them. You will get a kick outta them though. How many meetings you go to a week? Me 3 or 4. I've got 41/2 years but the reality is that I have just one day. I have a good sponcer and am on the 9Th step at the moment. I figure the longer it takes to do them the longer I'll be sober. Fly me a kite and drop in on bikernet some time. good place to hang out. It's run by Keith Ball. he was the original editor of Easy Riders mag back when it was a kickin rag. LTR

    Hey Art, thanks you! I couldn't see the pic of the shovel. I am not yet a PREMIUM MEMBER so I can't really write back to you . Love to see the scoot. Trike Girl
