    Hi all, I'll be 70 years old this September. Lived a hard life, all self induced. Just had a TIA, (minor stroke) Friday, and just got out of hospital yesterday evening. Scared the chit out of me. Right side of body dead, couldn't speak, drooling out the side of my mouth, etc. etc. I'm feeling better today, but sure am glad I wasn't on one of my Rockets when it happened. I would have crashed for sure. No notice, happened like flipping a switch. Just wish I had taken better care of myself, in earlier years, but it's too late now, to go back. You young-ens enjoy life to the fullest, cause gettin old ain't for sissy's. I think it's time to thin out my 6 motorcycle collection.;)

    You must have had a complete brain and neck work up. Wow, complete hemiparesis! Did it self limit of did you have tpa/clotbuster in the ER? The follow up care of this first event is critical in order for you to survive this a long time. 70 these days is not that old. If you have a life to live you should get all of it you want. You just need a specialist team. These days there are Neurologists dedicated exclusively to stroke.

    Don't go. I understand if you decide not to ride any more but having you around puts a smile on my face. Your the man who chooses to ratchet down the shed and ride out hurricanes. I love you brother.
