Does Reggie still have a Serow? Just gone AWOL? Miss the good ol' boy.

Thanks for best wishes for our chum, latest is he can now move both hands but little feeling, he can talk through a tracheotomy valve. Improving a little a time.

Ok, my back has been thoroughly checked, they know what the problem is, but unfortunately they can't do anything about it. Basically it is just deterioration. It's worn out. They said it doesn't usually get this bad until someone is much older. My fault for being so hard on it and being overweight. Doctor said I can ride again, but no rough stuff, and if I feel to much pain, stop. I am taking methocarbamol, which helps a little.

I've been thinking about the situation and have come up with a few more ideas for something I can stand on to get on the bike, pull up with a rope, put in a basket on the luggage rack, then lower it back to the ground with the rope to the right place, and use it to climb off the bike.

I will need to get creative with how to carry all the stuff to fix a flat. Fortunately I have a centerstand. I have the super heavy duty 4mm thick tubes in it from Rocky Mountain, but I carry standard 1mm thick tubes for emergencies. Those 4mm tubes take up a LOT of room.

This getting old is not fun eh, and the bad weather don't help if we can't stay active.

That's gotta be a difficult condition to deal with, Jerry. Wish you all the best as you search for solutions, both physically and with how to go about successfully riding your XT again.
