    Thank you Imu!

    That was a long battle she fought, she's definitely in a better place now. A good woman indeed! I knew her for 38 years, raised 6 kids by herself, she was tough. Lived with us the past 3 years, some days were not so easy, but it is all 'part of the deal'. Julie had the dual part of daughter & nurse, at times this got very interesting to say the least.

    For any family that has had to care for their elderly, I can now relate! Not a easy task indeed.

    Thank you again Imu & family, now back to Moab planning.

    We are in Atlanta currently for a Community/Religious Event. There are about 100,000 People of our community here. Hmm, about 99,980 more than I can or want to see.

    Sorry for your loss Sam. Unfortunately that sort of thing happens more often as we get OLD.:(

    Thanks Win!

    Yep, we're all getting up to that age where we all start going to more services. Just the way life works I guess.

    Damn Simba, he’s so busy right now he can’t ride (or fly) anything.

    Just because you got the new bike disease worse than most, leave Sam alone I say! :1drink

    I is in remission so let somebody else be afflicted with de disease.
    The Vanvan is cute and awesome in its own right. The Vespa is fantastic.
    But he needs a KLX to complete the circle.

    Post Moab navel-gazing should determine Sam’s next acquisition. Before he sells it, I want to read about a heard of TWs and VVs in UT/heaven.

    Hi MYUMPH-

    Nah, Imu doesn't know anything...I mean about me purchasing a bike. Just gunna stick with the Van Van for now.

    Now that I think about it, I have kinda cycled through an allotment of bikes. I've flushed out the 'big' stuff, BMW's. Regrettably got rid of the HD200, kinda(only kinda)am rethinking the KLX I sold, but not really.

    But even with these small changes, I don't even compare to Imu, Colby and Brian. Those guys are just plain azz SICK.

    Thank you my brother jon, at least someones' got my back around here. :freaky

    Ya, been a bit busy as of late.

    Truth be told, I'm really starting to second guess this White Rim Trail ride on the Van Van, I'm just not sure this is gunna be the right move. But, I'll do it anyway, then surly regret it. Imu, have you done the WRT on a TW?

    Thanks again jon!
