Default Rideing and Mini Strokes

Clumsy right hand and weaking body parts left arm
Low ability for endurance

Stroke start was June 2011 today

Rideing up to the cracked rib was doable now almost 6 weeks later clutch is hard to pull and work

I have a easy clutch comming

this Stroke is not like others thats a on then off switch its more like resisters installed in a hardwired system

are there other riders that similer how do you cope

When my arthritis is real bad I hook the clutch lever with my hand and pull it with my whole arm. Luckily this isn't often.

ALS is tough news, man. My heart goes out to you.

My mother was diagnosed with ALS and given 2-4 years to live.........FOURTEEN years ago!!!!! She's currently the nation's longest living survivor of the disease.

I pray even longer longevity for you.
