Larry, you are incredible! Well done and thanks for keeping us wannabe's posted. Just curious, how do you rack up such miles? Do you ride every day and where do you ride? I'm guessing yes and everywhere.
I have been dealing with a painful lower back issue that has kept me off my bike for way too long. This morning I woke up and thought, "I need to get back on the bike and try to get some enjoyment while I and the doctors work at getting the diagnosis straight.". I felt better just having that thought. Then I read your post and wow, I was inspired! I rode today! I still have the same pain, but it is no worse from having ridden and I feel so good having ridden. Thank you. Your story is so impressive and inspiring, Larry. Good for you for being such a good husband. I feel for both you and your wife and am so impressed by the way you are living your life. Your story is one that cries out for recognition and I'm going to do my best to see that your story gets told.
Keep on keeping on and be safe, Larry.
What a drag. In all my years of riding I've fortunately, very fortunately, only had two punctures, both on the rear. My first one, after many years of riding, was on a new tire with only 750 miles on it, like yours. That blunt sucker you showed must have been angled just right, or just wrong.
