Once more into the breach!

Typing this on my G1 phone, so it will be short. I had typed a really long post, and of course I screwed up and lost it. I'll use my own advice to others ans save early and save often. I tried riding the Suzuki motorcycle for the first time since my legs were paralized in August. It was a scary proposition. I don't have enough control over my legs to hold the bike up when I stop. I have to look at the shifter to see if my toes are on/under the peg to shift since I can't feel them. I can ride pretty well, but stopping is a scary thing. I think it will be quite a while before I am really able to get up on the bike with confidence. Riding the bike again was one of my goals in fighting the disease. Just being able to ride around the block a couple of times gives me hope. Now, all I need is to see my boys again and I can go happily.
