Greetings Colorado Chadd.

Ask all the questions you can muster. You will get varying opinions & answers which is good. Great bunch of guys here with equally great discussion thrown in with a small amount of fun nonsense.

hey

thanks for all the kind welcomes, well i have two different bikes i have the 85 wing limited that i was just workin on and i also have a 85 suzuki maduraglf1200. they only made them in 85 86 so they are kinda rare. but i love them both. i dont ride as much as i used to since i had my back surgeries starting in o2 but i still do some. i used to go to sturgis every year and alot of other around here riding but havnt been anywhere for a long time . to the guy from down under, i have always wanted to go to austrailia to visit but i would love to move there .its been my dream to just get to go sometime. i dont think ill ever get to now though as im on disability and you all im sure know the money situation there? its not good. my wife teaches kindergarten in a very small school and the pay there isnt much either, and with two kids a 8 year old girl and a 20 year old girl getting ready to get married ,well its been rough. but we always have our bikes to fall back on when things get too much huh? well again thanks for all the kind greetings and hope to talk to all soon

Chadd. Keep getting up mate and don't let go of the things that you would like to do. The future is a funny thing. Have a look at the post [Adelaide to Philip Island]. My youngest son 8 years ago was in a wheel chair. He had a gastric pump attached 24 hours a day, he couldnt eat or drink. He had a chemo port in his chest and then the doctors said they could do no more and that was when we first went to the USA. I sold my property to get the cash and never regreted it. Now look at him, he still has problems but you would never know it by looking at him. Two days before leaving for that trip he had plasters taken off both legs a week early so that he could go. The plasters were on so that he would be able to walk properly for the first time. He had been ain a wheel chair for so long that his bones had growen but his tendons hadn't. For me to be able to go with my son on a bike trip was pure gold. Something that we will stay with us for life. If things change and it becomes posiable I'm your man, I would join you with a trip of a life time. Your mate Down Under.

Eric,

I have read many of your posts. You are always upbeat and enjoyed reading about your trip. We laugh together, encourage one another and help each other when we can. I have to say this is one of the most inspirational posts I have ever read. I didn't realize the history with your son although I read about his casts coming off early. We are blessed to have you on this site and just wanted to say thank you for reminding us that change for the better can happen and often does. This week we will celebrate Thanksgiving. I am happy to hear of your sons success and hope he continues to improve.

Keep us posted and keep teaching us new phrases. My mates at work now know that we need to "rug up" as it now cold.

Catch you in the traps my friend.

Tim
