Hey all,

I have not been around the forum except for a couple of brief check in's since the death of my son in July. I have not even been on the bike until this past Sunday night. I came home from a late weekend day at the office and jumped on and went for a late night ride to a full harvest moon and crisp fall evening air. The smell of the fallen leaves and the final farm hay cuts is still lingering in my mind. Damn I needed that ride more then I realized! I have missed the old crew here and thought I would stop back in and say hello!

Hope everyone has been well and enjoyed the summer.

Hey, Rick. Glad to see you're doing OK. Fall in Vermont--I can't imagine a prettier place to be....and ride.

Rick,

Welcome back, sorry to hear about your son. Sometimes getting out for a ride brings me back to earth. It takes time sometimes.. Ride safe..

welcome (back) home

Glad to see your back, when I lost my wife I needed to ride even though it was february and cold, I found it very therapeutic. Hope it works for you. Best to you and your family.

Welcome back Rick,
Having lost a son myself, I know how you need a break once in a while without others. Nothing feels better.
Keep riding, you deserve it!!!

So sorry for your loss Rick. I lost my wife to cancer last february and would have lost my mind as well, if it hadn't been for my bike and a few close friends. Nothing will ever be the same, but life goes on for those of us left behind. God bless.
Fred
