Jared, best wishes, and good fortune in whatever endeavor you choose.....we'll see you again, my friend, down the road, on a bike. Once bitten, always there....
Be it 20 years or 20 weeks, we'll see ya riding again one day. Till then, keep the faith!
At one time, I just rode my Harley to the Dealership and back every day and very seldom rode her on the weekends. That lasted about 8 years. Thats the closest I came to not riding....
Even when I was run over recovering, I had my bike in the garage, learning to walk again after the wreck took almost a year. But, you can get killed crossing the street.
Hope and wish for the best for you and yours, we'll see you later on down the hwy....

Funny to see this thread pop back up again. Life without the bike has been tough, and yes I know that it was resold. I contemplating buying it back, but it's simply not time. Right now, nothing is more satisfactory than pouring my time and energy into my kids and business.

When the kids are running to soccer games and other extra curricular activities, it'll be great to have a bike then. Now is the time to hug, love, teach and support your children. Kudos to you!

Amen, Brothers. I went 17 years without a bike. Had to get the kids grown and thru school. Also Build my career to make more money. Now I am Back and have both. You will get there.

Hey Jared... I recently answered the resurrecter of an old thread asking for a link to your videos by directing him to your YouTube clips

On the way to find them I had a look around in your photography website.

It's clear from that website that you love your work, and your family... It's also clear from your videos (and we all remember) that you felt the same way about your bike until your focus had to shift to accommodate the former. Your priorities are spot on.

So good luck with all your endeavors out ahead. We all look forward to seeing you back in here more regularly, at some point when a bike better fits into your life and family again.
