My new baby :D  My Christmas present.  I just couldn't resist myself.  I told my local Harley dealer I wanted a road bike worthy of tripping to major events around the country, mainly Bikers for Trump rallies in DC and a trip to NC/SC for political rallies and bike rallies.

This bike represents TWO years of cigarette savings of two packs a day @ $6 a pack!  This is how fast my bank acct grows when I'm not buying those damn cancer sticks!  Now only if I get another clean CT scan Thurs ;p

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a smoke-free Happy New Year.  You can do this, we can do this. The reward (wind in my face) and whatever freedom it allows you is priceless.  Love you all ;D

Hello Rich............wishing you many wind blown days on the bike.    I have a hubby and son who are mad bike fiends.  Neither have a bike at present, but have done some long journeys in years past.    Believe it or not, I spent plenty of time on the back of someone's bike when I was a teenager..........ancient history times.

I don't post much, but I do keep up with you and Linda and I pray that things will go easy for you both.

Hugs

Viv

Good to see you Viv.  Keep up the good fight.  For the life of me I don't know why I bought another bike ;p  I just kept dumping my smoking savings into an acct and noticed I had enough for a touring bike. If only the wife could ride with me as in years past.

Take care, Rich

Clean CT Scan again, yah me, yay us ;D  I'm good for another 6 months.  Almost 3 years surviving already.  I can't believe how quick this time has gone.

Merry Christmas everyone,

Thanks Mary.  I almost pulled it out of the garage today but going to wait until the salt is over in 3 months.  Its just too shiny to take out before spring ;D

Thanks, it really is. Next to get LInda sorted. We're changing her doctors and hospitals this year. Hoping the change isn't too rough on her.

Happy New Year Forum! (Thanks for the support when I quit smoking and along the way with C)
