Because of this I haven't been checking in on the biking boards as much as I have been online in the last 30 years last few weeks. It's getting hard to type now; so I'm cutting back a bit & my hope for riding is almost gone. Now getting pushed from da wife to sell bike to pay collectors.

I'm extremely grateful for all the kind offers folks, I just don't know where this is going now. I may have to give it all up after 50+ years of riding. The sad part is even though I'm still extremely fanatical/enthusiastic about riding/racing, physically it's becoming an impossibility.

I REALLY appreciate the multi-offers for help, I'm just very embarrassed by all of this crap. I haven't had a "wrench-day" here because frankly I'm too embarrassed by our messy house & garage. W/both the wife & I disabled, & a couple rotten teen-agers who ain't helping much, our place is a total mess/filthy...

I'll still be around the site; but as I say, it's getting painful to type now, so I sadly will be cutting back...:

EBD, I am so very sorry to read this. Losing a passion, especially one held for so long is truly tragic and leaves one without a piece of oneself.
If I could ask something of you though, it would be that you keep an open mind to what is possible. This may not be my place to say as we do not know each other, and I apologize if this is insensitive, but why not just take the plunge and except the good will of those who offer it? So your place is a mess? Ok, I would bet your not the only one. How many cluttered hoarder, parts-bike, project collecting tinkerers do you think we have on this forum? I would bet ALOT! and we havnt even considered the amount of cat ladies .

What would you give to ride again? Pride is the only thing you stand to lose and pride is the most harmful thing to your chances of riding again. Believe me I get it. Charity hurts, but in the end it can only help.
All the best,
-Adam

get a squeeze ball. kinda like a tennis ball but smaller and not round it has a jell of some sort in it and the outer skin looks like a colored balloon.
it is for improving the mussels in the hand, can not hurt.....
....except for the pain.

get into pt if you can. and burch to the Dr about this, get a mri if you can.

30+ years back my left leg was in a cast for 14 months (let out to get fitted for a leg brace) then a year in that. but now the foot (ankle) can not rotate up correctly..can be hard to shift at times with out lifting the leg to do the ankles job.

sad but broken parts do not always mend up right.

Soon man...

I got the itch last weekend & decided to at least run the bike as the gas is from last July (I start it monthly & do a complete warm-up.) I was scared of water & crap in the gas & should have known better as I been thru this half-a-dozen times. I poured a bit more Stabil in it, & hit the choke & cranked her over.

Uh-oh, running on 2. 1st time this bike has done that. Well maybe it will clear once warm. I let it run a bit against my better judgment. Never clears out & I don't like "dry-firing" cylinders for any length of time. So I give up figuring I have just trashed the carbs w/bad gas due to pure lazyness not to drain the tank & replace w/good gas. Now must do a remove/clean job on them which is a nightmare on stock carbs w/the airbox. @%$!%&(*

Now I'm really fu_ked. Grrr. Give up, put it back on the Batt. Tender & go inside overnight. Come out the next day & the gas fumes seem bad enough to explode. Can't even breath in garage. Shit......stuck float & petcock BOTH?!!?? i bang on carbs & petcock a little w/rubber mallet & notice the gas leak is now only a drip. But I lost almost 1/4 tank overnight. the carpet under bike is drenched w/gas. Remove outside to dry; hopefully it won't leak much more. Gas fumes somewhat reduced....(sigh)....

Now I have gained new problems not to mind the old ones. I'm so bummed on this it's unbelievable. i thought all i needed was a tire, brake bleed, & scheduled maintenance. Now it's 100 times worse...

Thank you so much for your kind donation!

Now I'm that much closer to a new front tire!

Sometime again soon!

Hey Dave
Name your tire. Might be something we run at the shop, if so I can pick it up at cost, or see if I can get one at a greatly reduced price.

Cool! I've been primarily a Dunflop guy since the 70's; I've also run Pirelli's & Michelin's occasionally. Recently I was given a BS BT016 for a rear tire for a Xmas present. I like to match brands on both ends, so would like something in the same brand/ballpark handling quality for the front. This is my 1st experience w/Bridgestones ever.

My only concern about tyres is that they are good in the twisties; as that's the only riding I do these days = relaxed riding up in the hills. I ride the street to get to the curves. I can adjust riding style a bit for other areas. I wanted a Q2 but now that i have the band new Bridgestone mounted to the rear, I'd like to get a matching "front."

Hey Dave, if you change your mind about the Bstone, I'm going to have a 120 / 70 Q2 with some track and little commute on it, available after next weekend.

I'm just up in road in Oakland if you need a hand with wrenching, or any puter/IT needs
