I found this to be one of the most uplifting stories I have read this past year. I was a little down in the dumps cause I had to get rid of one of my bikes (Vulcan 1600) recently due to a dirtbike accident that left my back sore riding in a cruiser position (sacral fractures). I'm down to only one bike for the first time in a long time (little F650GS) and waiting until fall (it's hot in AZ summer) to buy a standard sport. I was really starting to feel old (I am old!), but this guy really perked me up. Thank god for all the twits in the world who bring us back to reality. Righteous stupidity can be a wonderful thing.
