Hey there Paul, It was an honor meeting you at NASSIR 4. Sorry to hear the news, But hopefully you will be back in the wind soon, be it a silverwing, beemer or other smaller more manageable bike.
The good news on the other hand, is that you will now have more time to be online here padding up that post count and regalling us all, with your stories and sharing all that knowledge that you have stored up over the years.

It's a sad day for sure, but sadder still if you were to deny us your expertise. I would urge you to consider the advise CJ gave you, I've met and ridden with a lot of guys riding those scooters and I have to tell you, I wouldn't mind one in my garage. They're smaller and a **** of a lot fun to ride, they can do the sped limit quiet and comfortable and at 80 to 90 mpg, they're definitely economical. I rode the new Honda Silverwing on a road here that is 17 miles and all curves, 28 of them, and I couldn't stop grinning.

Just because you\'re a paranoid doesn\'t mean they\'re not out to get you.

A bit of a shock. Hope you find your way back to 2 wheels soon. Or three, if need be.

Why ain't we ridin'?

I never got the chance to meet you but I have learned a lot from you. Hopefully you do check in on the forum from time to time because i think it would be a great loss without you. Good luck with the next ride whatever it is.

It has been my pleasure to meet with you at several of the NASSIR events, and I am the richer for it.

Regardless of what you straddle, please do stick around here and keep us all sort out.
