  1. For the first time in almost 20 years my garage does not have any motorcycles in it. The trike sold on Friday and the couple that bought it came back today, Sunday and bought the V Star 1300. It was fun while it lasted for Charlene and I. We met many wonderful people that we consider family now. We will still be frequenting the VR site to see how things and people are doing, we might even cage it to some meet and eats and such. Now starting new chapter of our life without bikes is going to be quite a change.

  4. I have always been partial to Vogel for some unkown reason!!!!!!
  5. 2021 and 2022 have not been good to Charlene and I. I had to have surgery on both eyes in Sept of 2021. Right eye had a detached retina, a very bad one at that. The left eye had numerous tears and holes in it. The left eye was done first and I can see fine with it, will just need a corrective lens for distance, but the right eye did not go as well as the left. I can see but it's fuzzy and straight lines have waves in them, the Dr can do the surgery again but no guarantee that it would get better. So no my peripheral vision is a little off. So riding has become not as enjoyable as it was because of my vision, as for Charlene she just had 2 spinal surgeries to remove and replace the old hardware from her previous surgery. The rods now go further up her spine so she has very limited range there, and her recovery could take over a year it was such a major surgery. So time has come to part with my bikes and start another chapter without motorcycles. It was not a hard decision to make but one that was needed. Who knows after Charlene recovers things might change but I am not holding my breath. We have met so many wonderful people in VR and had so many good times getting together with everyone, it just all became family, and I may not be riding, but I will still frequent the VR site and who knows we might even show up at some meets and rallies. We definitely wont be doing Vogel this year, its just too hard for Charlene to get around right now. Both my Venture trike and my V Star 1300 are going up for sale in the classifieds on VR.

  8. Thanks Ron. Great meeting and riding with you.
  9. Just wanted everybody to know that I will not be on VR for a while. While we were Vogel the North Georgia mountains last weekend I developed a tear and a detached retina in my right eye. After visiting a specialist upon examination that I have several tears of the retina in my left eye also, I will be having laser surgery on my left eye this afternoon Wed. to correct my vision in that eye, as soon as that is healed sufficiently within two or three weeks I will be having inpatient surgery on my right eye which involves cutting and laser to fix that problem. I will likely not get my full vision back in the right eye but chances are good that my vision will be restored in the left eye. As far as the right eye it's not expected to get back to the same vision I had before it happened. Would appreciate your prayers at this time
  10. Small group but a fun group.
  11. We are here just waiting to check in at Seasons Inn.
  12. We are all packed and ready to go. Should be arriving before noon barring accidents and complications. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
  13. Does anybody have a source of 223 ammo at a decent price. Haven't been able to find any in stock at a reasonable price.
  14. Prayers sent for successful surgery and quick recovery.
  15. DId you find one yet, I may have one or two in my spare parts box. I will check when I go out to my shop later today.
  16. Enjoy your vacation Don, the rest can wait till you get back, at least we have someplace to come to now.
  17. I found these on Wish.com Very inexpensive and worth the price. I have them on my 93 Royale Trike and they are super bright and seem to be well made. Have them almost 2 years now and no problems. Shipping may be a little longer but worth the wait for me. https://www.wish.com/search/cree%20drivingl/product/5f34dc266ed1ed004efa3c73?source=search&position=29&share=web
  18. Here is one of my favorite Roy Orbinson from the Black and White album.
  19. Would you be interested in a 2003 Goldwing. It is located in Indy. It belongs to my cousin Jerry whom you met at Vogel. He is selling and its in great shape. Not a Hannigan...........I think its a Motortrike.
  20. So sorry for your loss, its tough loosing a pet who had unconditional love for you, no matter the circumstances. I have had to have a few put to sleep and its never easy. But he has crossed over that rainbow to run and play in those pastures and streams he loved to play in.
  21. Did you find one you liked Skid and if you pull the trigger will you ride it to Vogel next year? OH, and remind Leslie that she promised to make it to this one.............
  22. Well then Aug 11-15, 2021 is the date then. We will be at the Seasons Inn also.
  23. Jeff, go ahead and set the date you think is best, and we will make it happen.
  24. Hmmmmm...........decisions, decisions.......what to do??
