It’s been awhile since I have posted anything here. I guess it’s because I have been frustrated. Been sick since October, but really feels like I have been knocked out since my motorcycle accident back in Oct. 2015. Seems my body doesn’t like the month of October. I went through a thyroid storm. Diagnosed with Graves Disease. No big deal, millions get this right? Well, of course it complicated my diabetes. Sugars were through the roof for months. Still are high and I am learning my insulin pump. I have a dead right shoulder. Waiting for a MRI to see if I have a tear or “just” a frozen shoulder. My eyes have been puffy for over a month, creating blurred vision at times. No diagnosis yet and I have seen many specialists.
Anyway, over the last 3 months once again unable to work, I often go out to our garage and look at my F800GS and wonder if my body will allow me to safely ride again. I have sold this bike 3 times. Backed out of the deals every time. Well, this time she has been sold yet again to a very nice guy from Rhode Island. This time it’s for real. If and when I ever ride again, I will need a bike lower than my F8. Never did I feel this bike was too tall until my legs refuse to hold me up. I need more time and I haven’t given up the hope of riding. In my future will it be another BMW 1200GS? I loved that bike even though I only had a few months before she was totalled. This bike I can lower it by the ESA.
Life goes on as many say. I feel so beaten down at times especially since I can’t ride. We all know riding is like therapy. My own little world to myself. I am sad. As the days get longer, the weather gets nicer…well, you know the feeling. Moving from Connecticut to Long Island at the end of June. We have a very cute house in Eastport, LI. Doing some renovations and this is where we will stay. I love Connecticut to be honest. I thought I would be able to explore New England more on 2 wheels but never caught a break.
Back to the ocean. I do miss the water. Not far from Westhampton Beach. Anyone coming out to eastern Long Island we have a place for you to crash. So, no trips planned for now. I have promised myself once I can ride again I will take a trip somewhere. When I lived in BC I always had a trip planned. Miss my old neck of the woods, especially living in this political climate. I won’t stir that pot. Hopefully next post will be about my total recovery. Enjoy the Spring everyone and get out riding.
