  • I just cant do it anymore....

    Well, today was a turning point for me herdsters, and it breaks my heart to say it, but until I get my back repaired/improved, it's simply to painful to ride.

    I have about 4 miles between my house and my desk at work, and I've enjoyed many rides the long way this summer. But since I re-injured my back last month, the pain is just more than I can stand, and I feel that in order to medicate past the pain, i'll be putting myself and others in danger if I do so.

    With that said, I've picked a spot in my main warehouse for the sporty to rest, until I can get the Army to fix my back, or until I find another solution.

    It's a bitter sweet day for me, as this puts into question how long until I can ride again.

    Some of you may know, and some of you may not, but as of Tuesday afternoon, I requested that I be removed as Moderator here on the Forum. I did this in an effort to focus on healing, and providing for my Family. I felt that I was doing all of you a great dis-service to remain a Moderator without being able to devote the time needed to fulfill that promise. Frank is a kind and gracious host, allowing me the time away in order to focus on these matters. For that I thank him from the bottom of my heart.

    Who knows what the future will hold, and I hope to return as a "HERD" Moderator one day. But for now, I'm just a regular joe, and will spend as much time as possible here with you good people.

    I feel at home here, and want to thank all of you for your support thus far. A better group of people would be nearly impossible to find. I keep the "HERD" in my prayers every day, and pray for the health and well being of you all. You're damn good folks, and I thank you.

    I'll see you on the forum....G

      well, just get back on it when you get healed up. as far as being a regular joe, you've always been a regular joe to me. i wouldn't have any more or any less respect for a moderator as i would any member of the herd. i think i said that right, any ways i hope you get fixed up and just like me it will take time.

                  I agree with everyone here, you need to get yourself well first and the rest will take care of itself. The sporty will take ya back when you are ready..

                        Moderator, Smoderator!! I don't even know or care what that means - something about keepin' this bunch of crazy bovines in line. Yeah right, like that's gonna happen!

                        I just enjoy your posts and hope you heal up quickly!

                              Greg, like others have said here, do what you gotta do and we'll all be here for you; always. Stop in often and throw your opinion around. I think Worm can vouch for "being medically unable to ride now but working on getting better" support you'll get.
