Prayers up for you

Prayers up for you Doug. I hope to travel to KY a few times
this year (Middlesboro and Louisville), maybe I'll give you a shout
as I head through. Hope you make it back on 2 wheels but a
Vstrom hack would be cool.

time to spend some real money and get a canAm for the day the doc gives you the all clear. I partly agree with ontario... stop driving cars. spend as much time on bikes as possible but have someone drive you if you need to go in a car.

i love scooters. And canAm's. Scooters are cheaper but I told the kid already my last check is gonna bounce, aint gonna be no inheritance tax to worry about.

Our prayers are with you my friend, ....

Thanks for all the well wishes and all the prayers. I am getting stronger faster than I thought I would. Got to take my 250cc scooter out for two short rides yesterday. Felt really good.

Again, thank you all. Hope to be on my big bike in a month or two now.

Doug

Good thoughts flowing that way. Heal up. Best wishes.

I trust you are doing a little bit of exercise i.e. walking a little each day. 'Gotta keep the body moving even if minimally and slowly have it come back.

Hang in there.

Thumb How You Doing?

I just read about your heart attack last month and wanted to send my best wishes and prayers to you.

I have had a couple of heart attacks and have had 3 stents placed. I'm 57 now and not so much of a badass like I was (in my mind) before.

I still ride but feel my days are numbered.

Please take care of yourself!

You'll be in my prayers from now on.

All the best to you my friend. We all take our health for granted until something happens. It sounds like you are recovering-a prayer for you to continue recovering and that you are riding again the way you'd like!

I don't know how this last heart attack is going to effect my riding on my Wee. Right now, it is too heavy for me to pick up off the side stand. I can pick my Honda Helix Scooter up off the side stand but am under doctors orders not to be on any motorcycle for now. My Strom riding days may be over. I do hope to continue on my scooter if I can.

If you are so inclined, a prayer or two for me might help.
what about a side car or trike kit for you helix. I ve seen simple sidecars made out of the rear of a small old bike and basic square tubing . Also seen trike kits for scooters. eg this diy one http://scootdawg.proboards.com/index...t&thread=23163

at least with one of these and planing ahead you can still ride as long as you park with a way out. hope that helps and you get better.
