On randysravings I have a page on my being crippled. I limp, had my left shoulder and left knee replaced. From a bike accident. YES, not my fault. Yes the person did not stick around. YES, I fooled them, I did not die. Another one I owe HIM!! I now have a lot of expensive titaniun in me. A hassle if I ever fly again. Not counting the stainless steel holding my stomach and my intestines together. YES, I have a handicapped placard so I can park close to the door. When I am feeling good, I do not use it. I know others are worse off than I am!
On my rave, I talk about being on my motorcycle. A 2002 Kawasaki Vulcan Nomad. Yes when young, I built and rode fast choppers. How funny now that I am nearing 68 in a couple of weeks, I like the fat tires, floor boards, air shocks and the fiberglass saddlebags. I prefer the cadillac over the corvette of bikes. YES, I still like to ride fast, and like the acceleration of my V TWIN of 1500 CC's, but not the hanging on during wild acceleration. When I can pass legally I do. Just not splitting lanes like 50 years ago. With my bike, everything is self adjustible. No working, adjusting anything. With catalic converter, computer checking exhaust and adjusting the air to fuel mixture like the cars. The last 14 years, no expense of adjusting. The drive shaft, and no tunups, just gas and oil changes. I am getting lazy in my old age.
When young, I pulled between two cars that were going to race when the light turned green. Yes, I beat both of them. Being BI-POLAR I look differently at life than you so called NORMAL people. I am an adrenalin junkie. No drug introduced into the body exites the senses like adrenalin. I get my fix now watching you tube, the go pro cameras give you the same fix as the real thing. That is why they get so many views.
YES, my new title is MINION to the ALMIGHTY. And yes, the TV preachers are right. GOD does not pick the person to do HIS work you think HE would. He picks someone, and molds them to do HIS work! LOOK AT ME!!
This URL is easier to look up. I bought lloydsrides.org So people can get here easier. $9.00 per year, and the girl did the work to link lloydsrides.org to bring up this site. They know us old people are not computer smart.
The reason I started this charity, I want to give the veterans and the mentally challenged individuals the same feeling I get when I am on my bike. I am not hindered by my physical limitations any more. I am just like you. My fold-up cain is in my saddlebag. I do not limp, I do not need my cain with my feet on the floor boards. The arthritis ravaging my joints leaves me when I twist my wrist to give the bike gas. When my left foot shifts the gears there is no pain in that side of my body. I am equal to you so called normal people??
I Want, no NEED to give these people the same few minutes of extacy I experience. When I return home from my ride, the rest of the day goes great for me. I want them to feel it too. No I am not just doing this for them. I need the feeling I get from helping them. YES, this is a selfish urge on my part. Retirement is too bland for me! I crave the excitement of going to the shows, telling people what I will accomplish. Talking to strangers, asking for volunteers, and donators so I can fund this charity. GOD gave me a BIG MOUTH. Sometimes it got me in trouble. 99% of the time it did not. Now I know why GOD gave this big mouth to me. With YOUR help WE will acomplish my vision and spread Lloyds Rides,Inc to all 50 states, and overseas too!
