Very nice video.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I have been riding a very long time. This video reminded me why I try to live my younger day dreams today.

Very timely video that one. This long time rider is going through his second bout with the big C. Chemo makes one feel nauseuos as hell. You don't want to eat and the med for it makes you drowsy. I have three driving forces to help me get through: my wonderful wife, my family and a gorgeous bike patiently waiting in the garage. The weather here isn't to conducive to riding, but it should be come June when this course is over. Thanks dirtdobber for that reminder of why we ride. Is this a great forum or what?

It saddens me to hear this. My wife has been battling the big C for several years now. She has 1 more chemo treatment, #8 infusion
Stay strong, God is in control

You guys are great. I'm new to the forum thing, got on it like most of you to learn and share. There's a lot of learning and sharing to do out there, but unlike other forums I've viewed, you guys keep it respectful and civil. That's appreciated by many, especially me. Thanks for all the good thoughts, I'll get through this and be up and riding what I like to call the thinking rider's cruiser.

Wow. Awesome video. It is amazing and gratifying to me to be able to turn off the news, hop on the net and see how a single common interest over a cold lump of steel creates a community of warmth and bonds among strangers. Live to ride, I hope you and your families win this battle.
