I did some reading and I agree, a sack is in my future sooner than later. I'm selling my race car so I'll have a bit of extra money. From what I read it couldn't hurt

Doesn't taste too bad. I've grown to like it. It also balances metabolism. My
circulatory system is so much better. In that respect, it's also good for type 2
diabetes.
I'm actually on Methotrexate (anti-cancer chemo medication) - for immune system moderation/suppression. My additional health issues are related to being immuno-compromised through a rare disease syndrome. The hip issues were an indirect consequence of this syndrome - use of steroids brought about necrosis of the hip joints.

In short - anything that actually boosts the immune system, is counter-productive to my particular issues.

Real fun, having a 1 in a million, rare disease process/syndrome. I just wish that i was as half as lucky, in buying a ticket in the lottery.

Chainreaction might well benefit from such an alternative, holistic treatment approach with cancers.

As long as we are healthy enough to keep doing what we wish to do, including working on/playing with MAB's .. it's all good. In the end, life is a terminal disease with no guarantees - just try to keep enjoying the good things in your journey, while you can!

ummm, yeah, a bit higher in degree of seriousness compared to being Type 2 diabetic. Both bad.

Keep riding for life!!

To-From work, better than the bus, always parking available, cheaper than a scooter. For everything else I can just use the car. Parking is the biggest reason I believe.

I had a puch moped. It had its charm but it was slow an there was no low end. There are ways around that but not without spending some long coin. My motorbike is cheaper, slightly faster and has torque out the wazoo. Plus it weighs less and it's unique. I'm the only person in the world with that bike. No other bike motor or otherwise looks like my bike. Each one can be a rolling work of art.

Here lately, it seems that the reason for riding my bike is that I can more effectively distribute money to deserving parts companies.

Oh well, it's much cheaper than most of my past hobbies!!

Mopeds are ok but I love the idea of making my bike look like it came from the 1920's or so easy to pack around and bring in the house my job is 10 min. away most of it is 30 miles an hour or less all so the store by my house 4 blocks away well not sell beer to any one walking you must have a vehicle and a motorized bicycle is good enough for them witch makes it a perfect grocery grabber totally fun and totally legal in New Mexico.
