    Default Fibromyalgia and riding

    Getting the Freewheeler Trike is the best move Ive ever made. My wife of 32 years bought my first Harley, a 1985 Softail. And she was on the back for quite a lot of 134,000 miles. I had bought a 1987 police bike and had planned to build a custom sidecar, so she could drive her electric wheelchair right in and we could both ride again. Then, after a long bout with MS, sadly, she passed on December 15th, 2015.Her life insurance was enough to pay off the house and buy the Freewheeler. She still gets to ride because I saved a small portion of her ashes and she goes everywhere I do. Im married again now and this one likes to ride too. I guess that makes me pretty lucky.

    If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
