I try to explain the ride and the feeling the 9 gives me to people and they just don't understand the love I have for my bike and to ride. I am 80% disabled from USMC, PTSD.. really bad... and the only time I am not thinking bout "STUFF" is when I am on "The Mistress". This should have been me:
If it wasn't for Sgt. Bryan D. Jones my name would be on that list at the bottom. Problem is one of them took my place and now they are gone. I had to set up the boots, rifle, dogtags and helmets for the memorial service to them at Camp Lejeune. I have not been right in the head since.. "Survivorship mentality" is what they call it..
But the only time I don't think about death, life and everything else is when I am riding.. the looks, the attention, the ride, the wind... all of it is amazing...
Share with the group, how do you feel when you ride?
