    HankS.D. just sent me a PM that Biker4ever and Bikergirl4ever's Home burned to the ground on Monday. Many of us Minnesota ADVriders have benefited from there Hospitality so I thought it would be appropriate to start a thread where people can encourage them as they go through this difficult time.
    I know they were also expecting a new grandchild right about now so I'm sure it is a very chaotic time for them.
    Here is the link to an article.

    Oh that totally blows - I am so sorry to hear that. I sure hope they can get restored as soon as possible. Best wishes to them.

    Ya totally blows X 1000. Lance and Sheri are some of the most genuinely nice people we could ever hope to meet.

    Hopefully we can all help them out.

    This was terrible news! I am so sorry! Please let me know what we/I can do to help. I can't imagine what u guys are going through.

    Maybe we should start a Paypal donation for them?

    I'll keep you guys in my thoughts. You are one of the greatest couple I have ever met, I hope you pull through this all right!

    I keep thinking of you each time I do something. I'd have to buy a new toothbrush, toothpaste, tupperware, pen, notebook, phone charger. I'd even have to buy new old clothes to wear to work.
    Too much of your own sweat went into that home for it to go so quickly. It was a beautiful place.

    Lance and Sherri, you opened your home to me for a place to stay and provided wonderful hospitality. If there is anything I can do, let me know.

    Best wishes.

    Todd.

    So very sorry to hear of your loss, if there is anything I or a group of us can help with, just send out the word, I know you would help any of us if you could. You have been generous to the area riders and I hope we can help in some way.

    Thank You everyone for your support. That is what we are most in need of.
    We finally bought another computer and made it to a free wifi place. Everyone including the dog are doing well. So far so good with the insurance, we will see if we say the same thing when it is all done. We appreciate all the offers and will keep them in mind. We hope to have this one built by others but if we cant we will definately call for help.
    Hopefully all goes well and we will have some more motorcycles soon. Jason & Cara have so graciously offered us some of theirs. The responses and offers from everyone has been so beyond anything we could have imagined. We have such awesome friends. :raabia:raabiaWe are extremely blessed to have all of you in our lives.
    If anyone has any pictures from previous rides, we sure could use some copies.

    I got some bikes to if you need them. You might have a good time playing with the Hayabusa. But not in the dirt.
