Docs give 6 more months but really God only knows when. Heart output is still at 25 % output, right lung is collapsed about 75%. Docs say when it goes it will take out the other and that will be the end of me.

Before this happens I'll try to sell off everything I own including the bike to move Linda and Stephen back to Texas to with be her family once again.

The side car I bought 2 years is finally mount to the bike by a club member of mine and he is wire up the lights to it and adjusted. Now he thinks the agm battery is dead on the bike as it cranks slow or not at all. Won't jump and hard to push start with side car attached.

BM, you're freaking me out with this hospital stuff. :waving:Hospital stuff" freaks me out anyway, but onto my point:

...now, ...don't just give that bike away in a rush. Get that thing squared-away and ride it. You know the deal; Ride To Live.

Take the screen off of it and make your own O2 Concentrator, ...at 70 Mph with a grin from ear-to-ear. :smiler:

Wow. I really don't know what to say, Baggie. But I really hope you hang in there for a long time still. But in the end we'll all take the same journey. And we seldom decide when. Guess you know you're in the minds of many, many friends worldwide.

Bjørn.

I have a sale offer from a seller for one that is portable, last 10 hr's on a full charge and fits on a shoulder strap or a belt. Like the one the old man wears on Sons of Anarchy. I just can't afford it.

My hospice nurse suggest I turn in my driver's license since I can barely drive the truck any more. I can still ride the bike though.

It needs painting, upgraded to an alternator and hell/toe shifter installed to make it easier to ride.

One of my club members has installed the side car I bought 2 years ago in Georgia but now the agm battery is dead and the bike won't start.

All my luck has been nothing but bad lately.

You guys have helped me out quite a bit over the years since I joined the forum so I won't ask again.

Michael, you have been sick for quite a while now.

I must say that I would do the same as you by making sure my family was taken care of to the best of my ability.

Family first. I know that nothing would make you happier than knowing your wife and son were secure.

Sometimes we do what we must to secure that future.

All the best to you....Sam

NEVER EVER turn in your License!

There is just no reason to ever do that!
If you can drive or ride then you can. If you can't then don't!
The license itself is just a piece of paper or plastic to make driving legal, and nothing more than that.
You will still need valid ID and that's something your license still is rather you drive or not.

Wishing you the best, and I will go back and read rest of thread now too.

Sorry to hear your doing poorly at the present time.
You've been through some bad stuff before and always pulled through so far, pull through this one too!

Sending out a prayer for you.
And you know if I can do anything to help out I will.

We have never met Mike, But I'd sure like to someday. I wish you the best, and as Sam said, If I were in your shoes, I'd do the same as you, to make sure my Wife and Kids were going to be OK. It saddens me that you would have to sell all that you have to achieve that, sometimes the memories are important to some, I know they were for me when my parents passed.

I have a lead acid battery from my 1200, will that fit? Im leaving for Pa tomorrow or Saturday, but when I get back, if your not in to big a hurry, I;ll work something out where maybe someone could meet me near the Rock Hill area in SC? Or if someone is available we can "Chain Ride" this thing down to you.

Good luck to you sir, You have been in my prayers, and you shall remain in my prayers. God Bless You.

What causes or attributes to most health problems is STRESS and from all your threads and posts over the past year or so you are always stressed about not being able to afford to either put the bike on the road or getting the side car hooked up or other stuff like this ,Now you are stressed out about a battery , Michael GETrid of the bike with or without a good battery and get rid of the stress,a battery is not going to make a huge difference on the price you can get on what is basically an old bike ,, So just sell it and get whatever you can for it ,you may not gain a lot in financial terms ,BUT the relief you will gain with the stress gone will be worth a million dollars ...
