The Endocrinologist I work with told me that if you are on an E.D. drug and get in an accident with a head injury. You are bout 50% more likely to recover or survive! So I pop a Viagra before every ride! Then when I get home I chase down the lil wifey.heh,heh,heh....= perfect day.

I was on blood thinners a couple of years ago for about eight months. I didn't even think twice about riding. If your think about what might happen..................................

Just make sure your pipes stay hot enough to cauterize anything and you're good!

I went for a ride on Sunday with some buddies on the wife's Nightster trike since my leg is still bothering me. It was good to be out but my hips were killing me after about an hour and a half into it. Don't ever break your pelvis, 10 months later it still sucks. Good news on my clot, they did a blood test to see if I had genetic predisposition to clots and I do not!

I haven't ridden the wife's trike too much since we did the conversion but it was pretty fun, I still prefer two wheels but still had fun. She needs a steering stabilizer, fork brace and better shocks for sure...lol

I've been riding with buddies twice since I posted last. It was good to be out even if it was on the wife's trike. My hips are still still in a lot of pain from the accident when I was on the bike.

Five vessel by-pass, five heart attacks, three sents, ICD/Pacemaker, and a blood clot in my left leg in '08 even though I was on blood thinners. Heart Doc didn't like the idea of me riding but it's what I enjoy. I do get tired more than I used to, just not ready to give up and roll over and die! I do get pain in my left hip from arthritis, but can usually walk it off by stopping and moving around. Did I mention type 2 diabetes? So a whole list of things, just don't give up, the Reaper is waiting!
