Good Bye…


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 […]

http://combiboilersleeds.com/images/dreaming/dreaming-6.jpg Since I can’t ride I have too much on my hands to pay attention to very controversial topics. Leslie Sofarelli I am hoping to get a few weeks away on holiday this year. Response I get from my colleagues. “What? You’re dreaming, no one gets more than a week at a time and if […]

I have been called strong


I miss my bike.  I really do.  I can’t ride my F8 or any bike for that matter. This was my last and almost first real ride since I busted my tibia.  About a month ago I went out and it was like a breath of fresh air.  My last 2 years have been challenging […]

It’s been awhile…


I haven’t posted for a while mainly because I am still not riding.  Into my 8th month of recovery from my motorcycle accident back in October 2015, I am regaining strength and flexibility day by day.  Yet, as hard as I have worked especially since March 21st, 2016-the day I became weight-bearing, I feel I […]

My short helicopter video 


Here’s a short video I made celebrating my 50th belated birthday gift. Cross learning to fly off my bucket list.  Interesting how many who ride seek other adventures as well.    

50 is just a number & Helicopter

50 is just a number & Helicopter


April 5 – 6 2016 In February I turned 50, half a century old.  I remember when I was younger thinking 50 was old, yet when I look in a mirror…I don’t see an old woman.  Weird, I see someone who has been through many trials and tribulations but not weathered, not old, just living.

Healing and more changes


Recap…this blog has been a bit sleepy because well?  I haven’t been doing much since October 17th, 2015 except trying to heal from my crash.

A DOGS love & the pain saying good bye


One thing I find interesting?  ADV riders seem to have in common is the love for their pets and life.  I have no real tangible evidence but I would say many of us who ride have dogs.  Having said that want to find my soft spot?  Loving my dogs and then having to say good […]

Even Charley has accidents…


February 17 2016 I just heard yesterday that Charley Boorman was in a motorcycle accident in Portugal.  He broke his left tibia, fibula and right ankle requiring surgery.  Here is a tweet: CB had accident today in Portugal @ Global launch of Triumph Explorer I bet he’s home by now and beginning his road to […]

Taking longer than I thought


After 3 months of complying to the strict “rules” set out by my orthopedist-no weight bearing, continue full length cast “prison” therapy I was told on January 12th, 2015 that my leg needs at least another month.  Same therapy.  I will continue to comply but it’s tough when you’re not able to drive, have no […]

WELCOME 2016!

WELCOME 2016!


Wishing the world peace and health all year-long!
