No Joy

Sold the RGS last weekend. Hands can't work the bars/levers anymore, and it's no fun walking past the pig everyday. Hoping to be back on two wheels by next spring, maybe with some phys therapy and wonder drugs. Who knows.

Holy crap Batman! This is bad news indeed . Hopefully the Spring will bring better news.

Very sorry to hear redrover. Being physically limited stinks, I hope physical therapy helps.

Please keep us posted.

So sorry to see you sold the glide. Get that physical therapy and hopefully you can be back on two wheels soon.
I recently broke hand bones and fingers in my right hand. Just had pins removed Wednesday. Therapy next. Good luck RedRover.

I had 2 strokes a couple a months a part in the summer 2 yrs ago. I didn't take therapy from the hospital, but I have 2 great grands who take karate and they came everyday to crack my joints. I rode 2 more years until one day I fell over riding into a dirt driveway and broke my left ankle when the left saddlebag caught me and slammed my head into the dirt. So I bought a 07 Suzuki 1500 trike. I researched the different types and found a Harley trikes belt has to be adjusted every 1,000 miles. Not for me. The driveshaft models has the oil changed every 30,000 miles. This is a no brainer.

Sorry to say I haven't been over here in a long time. My hero is Bbally and I came back looking for a thread from Buffalo Bob.

Wonder if a centrifugal clutch set up would make a difference for you? That would justify a new ride!

sorry to hear you're having issues. Like you said maybe after some physical therapy and a little time you'll be able to get back on two wheels.
