Nope..... Not okay with this. Robert, were still here with you, keep fighting.
I suspected that was the case, but hoped I was wrong. Come on miracle. Shit.
God damn it.
Robert has been a huge help to me with my bike as I'm sure he has for a lot of people here. Whenever I ride my bike I think of him and his part in getting it back on the road. He's one of the best.
"Do not go softly into that good night...."
Unless that's what you want.
If you do than peace be with you and your family. Peace.
Be strong, and know that many are thinking of you and praying for you.
"God will never leave you nor forsake you".
In my prayers...
We only met once and we developed a brotherhood.
I honor meeting you and I hope your journey will be peaceful
and joining others who has gone before you. Enjoy the future without
the pain that you have been suffering. Your friendships will endure.
Say hello to my parents. I hope they greet you and can guide you
in your future travels.
You are my friend and brother
Robert, still looking for that miracle...but just in case.....I'll see you later. Godspeed.
There is a road, no simple highway,
Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go no one may follow,
That path is for your steps alone.... if I knew the way, I would take you home...
Our good friend Colleen will be posting under my account tomorrow regarding Robert's status.
Thanks for keeping everyone here informed.
I don't know Robert, but it is very sad to hear about another person dealing with the ravages of cancer.
I wish you godspeed and comfort on you're journey.
Not very nice!
Sad to hear. Best wishes to him and his family.
His center-stand fix is keeping my dad's R75/5 standing. Genius in its simplicity.
I've been away for a few days and come back to see this? crap.
Thanks for keeping us updated Chris.
Hi, this is Colleen, posting on Chris account.
First, a little bit about Roberts health. He does not actually have lung cancer. That was my error that Chris reported to you. He has liver cancer. The large tumor affecting his lungs is metastasized liver cancer. He has had radiation treatments to shrink the tumors, and this has made it easier for him to breathe and talk. Presumably the treatments have also reduced the pain somewhat. However, the disease is too advanced to hope for a cure. (I have been staring at that last sentence for long enough for my coffee to get cold, and I hate it. As if I could think of a better way to phrase it, so that it would no longer be true. But no. Fuck.)
I read these massages to Robert on Saturday around lunchtime. His sister was there to hear them too. He smiled at each familiar screen name, usually saying where you live and your real name too. Sometimes he added a little story. When it was someone he didnt know (or maybe didnt remember at the moment; dont forget that hes on a lot of pain meds), he said ah, a secret admirer. Thats you WeazyBuddah, and youre right. Hes a good person.
Osmoses fuck cancer got a cackle, with more laughs each time someone repeated that sentiment.
Johnnycash, extra smiles when he heard your name.
Walkingbear, Robert said youre a sweet guy (thats the condensed version). It must be true.
oh, shes great, youd love her. Then he went on about how strong and smart and awesome you are. Fight dirty
oh yes, youve got Roberts number.
Renner and Benthic, he clearly feels the same about you like old friends.
Wirespokes, you may not have got him back on the bike, but you did conjure up the big grin.
Spo123 there is still a glint in his eye!
Elmontanero, the thoughts and vibes are most appreciated.
Houseoffubar, thank you for the lovely ego stroke.
RobFarmer, you got an extra smile.
Zenduddist, peace and comfort are exactly what is needed (that and an ego stroke!).
I had to leave Saturday afternoon, so was only able to read the messages through the middle of page six. However, Roberts wife has the link, so he may have heard the rest by now, and he can still hear more. Keep them coming! Tell a little story if you have one. These posts made him smile. I enjoyed reading them to him. Thank all of you. And Robert, if someone has read this to you, I hope you think I got it right. I love you.
Strength. Healing. Positiveity.
Fight damn it.
if you, he, the family, needs anything. please, let us know.
im mega bummed.
Life can and will suck. But I sure do like the light around here.
We spend our winters in Yuma AZ and every few years we pass through JT on our way to the Death Valley Airhead Rally........ I threatened Robert with a visit a couple years ago but we never made it through there.
I'm a sidecar guy and I wanted to see the sidecar you have waiting in the "wings."
We are praying for a rebound for you Robert... I still wanna see that sidecar project come to fruition!

thanks for always being quick with help. your comment on my r50/5 needing a different cam saved me loads of troubleshooting headaches in the future.
you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. keep fighting.
