Throwing in the towel

Been awhile since I've been here.
Figured I'd get on here and update a few things
I don't ride anymore !
Shoulder injury from a car crash and arthritis have taken their toll on my old ass.
I have a appointment with my shoulder surgeon tomorrow to schedule my surgery.
Before I sold my bike I had Tyler Woolsey build an awesome motor for me,
to put back in after spinning a bearing doing wheelies.
The guy I sold it to, rode it for 120 miles then flipped it and destroyed it.

More death in my family, IKR. Now I'm down to 1 relative left.

About me, well. I've been riding since the early 1970's and just had to give it up,
riding has ALWAYS been my 1 and only hobby.
So here I am going on 54 and don't have a hobby that I love anymore
and I'm trying to figure out what to do with myself.
I really feel lost about it honestly.

That being said, I have gotten rid of most of my gear and tools,
but I think I still have a few little things laying around I may give away on here soon.

Anyone remember that one from the 1970's ?

Good to see ya around HellsRazor!
Might as well look for a Mustang or whatever car you like and start modding that.

My damn cobra has been taking most of my bike funds for the past 2 years lol.

Thanks fella's, but I've never been a car guy.
It was always about bikes and wheelies.
No Can Am for me thanks lol.
I have to find a non physical hobby,
Shit, might pick up a good metal detector and start combing beaches lol

fishing, scuba diving around piers to find stuff, magnet fishing off piers, metal detecting beaches, archery, should get into swimming anyway, good on the joints.
