Got out for about four blocks just to get the wind and sun. It was Glorious, I say! Kept weight on pedals, throttle only. Prostate biopsies this Thursday. Rides won't be an option for a while. Especially "if". Then hernia surgery, colon and last the bulging disc. Prayers appreciated. I wanna live to ride, ride to live. Thanks for all of the support and sharing of our riding. Been great.

Hello friends, acquaintances and victims. Been a month. I've been serving time in Facebook jail. Haven't been riding much. Short trips. Sitting at 1960 miles in 1.5 years. Running great. I hope this post finds you all blessed with peace and comfort during your trials. Health Update: Nerve Disease worsening. Very painful. Crohns disease in remission but now diagnosed with diverticulosis with a fissure. Very painful. Spinal stenosis with bulging disc remains unchanged. Very painful. Cannot use injections until after cancer surgery. Tumors under feet are benign. I have been diagnosed with two hernias in emergency condition. However, they will not repair until after cancer surgery is done. Finally, Prostate Cancer is full blown Stage 2, almost stage 3, with 3 cancerous tumors growing off. It has grown larger and the pain has increased. Next available surgery date is.. wait for it... August 17th. A couple of months still with hernias and lower GI pain. That day they will cut the Prostate and cancer out of my insides. Then bring in a general surgeon to replace both hernias while I'm still under. Stay two nights and home to bed for 2 weeks. Light duty for four more. Any and all prayers and support are greatly appreciated. This is my life's toughest personal battle, mentally and physically. I love you all and may God bless the afflicted.

Hello again. Been a member and owned a KBO "Mr Breeze" about 1.5 years. I have hit the 2,000 miles mark! I have had ZERO problems with my bike. I'm stage 4 Multiple Sclerosis with 15 full body paralysis and I'm stage 2 cancer. Throttle only riding mostly, but "Mr Breeze" has been a Godsend. Fresh air and sunshine are good for the spirit. I would greatly appreciate prayers. I'm in a lot of pain. Thank you to everyone for the words of encouragement and support throughout the year. I still ride short distances around the neighborhood a couple of times a week. Have a blessed night. "Well, they call me The Breeze, cause I keep blowing down the road"
Got my hair in the Breeze! Sign really means "Crash here = Gator Bait"

Thank you for the support and continued prayers. I have recovered nicely from my cancer and hernia surgeries. There are still consequences, after effects and permanent disabilities as a result, but we continue to carry on as if normal, as much as possible. I am still in a lot of pain and on many medications. The... "situation" and other problems will be addressed sometime in the future when absolutely necessary. But for the remainder of this year I will not be having any other procedures or treatments. "Catch me in January." Blessed... mostly. Thanks again.
My KBO, "Mr Breeze", has over 2200 miles and never a worry from it. That first ride after 8 weeks of remission is a glorious thing. Extremely important to have a reliable ride, too!

Don't let your emotions overpower your intelligence. There will be good things, if you just hold on. But, there will be amazing things of great wonder, if you push ahead and fight with honor. Dignity is important. Peace of mind cannot be purchased.

Two years now. Trouble free. Multiple Sclerosis sucks, but the cancer surgery is what has really slowed me down. Tests yesterday. Updates soon. Today turned 2115 miles now.
