Thanks y'all! I am thinking about keeping the 84 until I can get it on the road again. John, I was thinking about the RTE, and thought I'd probably drive to some of them. They are a lot of fun. Like I said earlier, I will still be on the forum, just probably not as often as I was.

Know the feeling. Hope the wife gets through this well.


I too have wondered if it isn't time.


I'm only 64 but in 2016 was diagnosed with NHL DLBCL (an aggressive Lymphoma) after having Doc investigate a growth. Since Sept '16 been fighting it. I have a MRI and check up Wed, getting anxious.


Bottom line, I'm OK on the trike, but not sure about the '85 Aspencade 2 wheeler. Sold my Trident last year. "Wife Unit" gives me "the look" when the 1200 is mentioned. She spent every day I was in Chemo, ER, and Stem Cell Unit by my side.

She's doing well now, but still has a way to go. I will miss it. The 99 Wing was totaled by the deer, so that's gone, but I still have a 79 and an 84. I will be listing them to try to get rid of them. I have enjoyed the years on this site and have learned a lot. Because of this site I have been able to keep many older wings going strong. I'll still be around, but not as much as in the past.
Hey LarryC....I'm really sorry to read the above post..I wish your Dear Wife a speedy recovery. I remember the day like yesterday that you joined this great forum....Don't rush to quit riding....heck!! I still take my neighbours for the occasional ride and i'm a few years senior to you.....When i'm talking to The Boss tonight I'll mention you and your Dear Wife to Him...

Thank you Redwing. Believe me, I'm not rushing. I just truly think it's best at this point. I'll miss it though.
