Hi everyone. I wish I had good news to share about this upcoming MC rally but I must inform you that I will not be attending this great meetup with our northern brothers and sisters. I had L4 and L5 spine fusion 10 days ago at the Phoenix Barrows brain and spine Institute. The pain has been atrocious. The physicians also said NO to riding for at least 3 months. There will be more rides in the future for me but this will be a heart-breaker for me to miss.

I have reserved a 2 bed reservations at the Lodge at Arrow Lakes that I must cancel soon. So if anybody is in need for this room, let me know before I cancel in a couple days.

Have fun and be safe. Until we meet again.
Glad that you're getting it looked after Ed. Until next time amigo!

Dave

Got the trip up planned, trip home will be mostly "let's go that way".

Google maps does not like showing ferry routes, but we will spend a couple of days in Friday Harbor as well.

Looking forward to seeing folks in a couple of weeks

Map clicky thing

May I suggest 5A from Merritt to Kamloops instead of # 5 ..its a lot more scenic, windy, twisty..then 97 to Vernon, #6 from Vernon to Nakusp

I just got a call that I did not want to receive. Bob Collings got bucked off of his newly-restored Vincent this afternoon - at speed. He called me from the Emergency Room and they were giving him strong pain drugs. Neither bike nor rider fared well from the sounds of things. Bob's injuries include a badly-broken shoulder, so CFR in Nakusp will be out for him - barring a miracle.

The show must go on however, and we are rallying the rest of the committee to pitch-in and take care of CFR in Bob's absence. More news at 11:00...

Get well soon Bob! 😥

Oh crap! Hope he is OK. Unfortunately, we don't bounce (or heal) as well as we used to.

Edit: I posted this info on the CFR thread on FJRiders with a link to FastJoyRide's post, above...
