Default New ride

In my efforts to get my ass back in shape Flips and I have been doing a lot of working out. Running, kayaking, working out in our home gym and I even ran a 5K back in July with an honorable finish. I beat the wife by 30 seconds.
With all of the above and a balanced diet I have dropped 54 lbs and she has dropped 45. My new nickname for her is "Sugar Butt". lol!!!
With the knee and joint issues that I have had since the bike wreck several years ago running has become to much stress on the knees even when I wear the brace on the left one so I have gone to riding with pedals. (no training wheels necessary) I tried my sons road bikes and they didn't seem to work out for thisnold dudes frame then he suggested a Hybrid. It's cross between a road bike and a mountain bike. After a test ride at the store it felt awesome and i decided right there that my new set of two wheels would not have an engine on it. I've logged several miles over this week and I'm looking forward to the weekend to ride some of the local bike paths.
riding and kayaking may be cut short soon. Since the wrek I have had progressing arm issues from the shoulders down. Met with the doc yesterday

I admire people who have the discipline to exercise. I'm definitely not one of them.When I retired I started walking a couple miles a day. One morning my knee started hurting. Went to ortho doc..long story short, surgery and rehab and no more desire to walk. Much easier on my body just to ride the motorcycle.

Congrats on the weight loss truck and tell Sugar Butt I said Hey!

Congrats Rick, that's awesome. I also started bicycling this summer, it's a great way to get fit and stay fit and I've become obsessed with it. I've ridden over 1000 miles since I started in July and lost 21 pounds, don't really need to lose anymore weight just maintain. I feel great and my cholesterol levels are all normal. Keep it up and tell Flips congrats also.

I have a mountain trek and use to ride it on the off road paths at alum creek. Good bikes but my back won稚 allow that kind of fun anymore. Congrats. Do you still have the 700 x ? I miss mine, should have kept it as a second bike.

Nice going RT.

We have been riding our bicycles more this summer than before, although mostly around our little lake-front town. I found our trunk-mounted bike rack so I guess we could go explore the metro parks before the snow flies up here.

By then I might make you a sweet deal on a slightly used V-Strom.

A co-worker of mine also has a 2015 Honda 150 Scooter for sale.


Less than 2000 miles. Black. Asking $2,500


I'll see if I can find a photo. It's a nice little scoot !
