My problem is tiredness post the brain cancer treatment, it's really my only symptom but an annoying one. I'm always bloody tired and the thought of riding the ST 1000 km just makes me tireder !

A smaller, lighter bike should help a bit .

It seems to me, from what I've seen, that it takes two years to get past a major event.

I actively read what you write and listen to what you have said through all this. I know you are walking measured steps in a good recovery back from all this. You mentioned a small bike and a good little sailer for yourself elsewhere.

A small bike and a lugger would work for me. I figure i can sell the airhead for supplies and begin the build in the next months.

I always brake in corners and think how I am going to get home if I really mess up. When I get home, I wished that I hadn't used my brakes and should have ridden a bit further.

I would say something small and chrome fell off their bike about a mile back. They always believed me. :twisted:
Oh man, if you told them their Guardian Bell fell off, you might see tears. :lol:
