We just lost "Dave" ( Dave's not here ).. I know of 3 members here who's wife's are very ill.

3 weeks ago, my wife was told she has stage 3 kidney failure,
today we go back to the specialist to find out about the thyroid scan..
all we know NOW.. they seen something not normal on her thyroid.

this is the reason I replaced my truck with a car..
wife learned to drive at 30ish.. and wanted to drive again..
without a car for a year.
freedom.
I may not be able to afford the car.. but its for her..
I have NO family.. just a wife of 45 years.

I apologized. I will fall on my sword for even opening my mouth (keyboard). People of MY generation were raised to be thankful, and common courtesy says when someone helps you to thank them asap. THIS WAS NOT FOR ME! I am part of a group of 40 some members, that will go the extra mile (or $) to help anyone, and they DO NOT EXPECT thanks, because it is seldom given. They -DO- really appreciate any acknowledgement of their generosity, though. I'm sorry I was asking for some courtesy. Thats what I get for sticking my neck and hand out.

<Mod hat on> Paxman11 and River13, This public squabble ends now. It is a private issue and painful for the rest of us to read. If you want to continue it, take it to PM (now called conversations). Any further posts about this will earn that person a "time-out". <doffs aforementioned hat >

It’s over I said my peace about it. If I feel disrespected publicly I will let it be known publicly that is only right but I don’t drag it out.


I STILL LOVE YOU FRAN!!!!

This new cafe seems to have drained the life out of this place.


Ride free ride safe

Still right proud of your patience Bruce as I understand what it means to hardly leave a shadow as you get after your life style. :eek: I have several friends like that, well, at one time they were and I kid them about it all the time. These days, our pace is a little slower.
Anyway, mega congratz on coming out the other side of that tunnel 🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲

Now, please be careful on taking pics while scurring down the road :cool:

I know I haven’t been around here in a while that’s because the cafe is not fun to come and hang out anymore. I wanted to share a couple pics of my gas tank from my accident that was Supposed to be fixed by ray but now is in worse shape. First off it was said to be done in a few weeks it took 8 months to get a junk tank back. The paint looks good but no matter why it looks like if it won’t hold fuel it is junk.

What it looked like when I got it back I wasn’t real conserved with they looks it’s on the bottom never to be seen until I started to put gas in the tank and it ran out as fast as I poured it in.

What it looks like with all the crap cleans off it’s plum full of holes no wonder it leaked. He tried to stop the leak with quick steel. I should have just bought a new tank or used my insurance so now after nearly a year still not on my bike.

Wanted to share with the cafe.

You should have claimed it on your insurance. I wrecked my 1100 back in 2003 and gas tank cost my insurance $2700.00 in Shreveport,Louisiana. I agree with you, that repair is unacceptable! Wishing you well!🇺🇸🇺🇸

Yep should have. Will be the last time I let anyone work on anything of mine. Just glad it’s over now
You know Bruce I’ve learned one thing over the years that almost always rings true, a favor hardly ever turns out good for either party!!! I can understand your dissatisfaction and I’m probably guilty of expressing mine a time or two when I feel wronged and I fully expect to loose friends from it when I do.
