Yup, sometimes it's good to know that it's more than just a page of pictures and sloppy writing.

Strong dude, that is for sure! I mention a person close to me that lay down and died. I was referring to my uncle. Tough guy, bad ass mean MOFO. Stricken with diabetes, turned into the biggest baby ever. Just rolled over and died like a mouse. I was disappointed.

But this dude is a fighter!

yeah ... I used to blog a lot ... and when I'd hear from someone like that it meant the world to me ... like what I was doing, even as seemingly inconsequential as it was, mattered

BTW Beanz ... I may be re-locating to SoCal ... if I do, I'm looking you up and riding with you!

Mr. Beanz, congrats on making a difference, even if it is in a small way, to someone having to deal with that. The people that can fight cancer and still live their life are true heroes.

Big to you for making a difference in that man's life. He said he enjoyed your videos too, so the next time someone says that making ride videos is "egocentric" or a "waste of bandwidth", point them to this blog post.

Keep up the good work!

Both you, and your unnamed correspondent, are inspirations to us all, Beanz. Keep doing what you do.

Thanks! That's why I asked his permission to post it on the blog. I've been accused several times in the past of thinking my blog is all that and that I feel it's a privilege to be posted there blah blah blah!

Far from the truth, my blog is about the people and guys like this are what make it worth while!

Thanks! I love it when I receive good words from fellow riders and parnters in person but when a person you have never met takes the time to write it out and send it? It too is great but his content makes it special!

Wow, that's incredible!

I've heard that a lot of fighting something like cancer is finding the will to not give up. You might have made more than just a small difference.

Yeah, the mind games would be tough! I hope so, it would be nice to think I did.

Good for you Beanz. Puts it all in perspective. The writer is a true hero and it makes any weedy excuse of "not feeling like riding" pale into comparison. I too hope to see that video one day...another great reason to stick around the forum
