I just had ankle surgury acouple days ago so now Im off work for a few months . I did this now so I could still ride this winter. I broke some bone off in my ankle and I dont know when it happened ! Work says I probably did it snowmobiling :blahblah: I told them it probably happen cus of work . I made sure everything is ready for this winter , washed, grease and ran them. Now I cant wait to get this damn cast off. :cussing: so I can walk the snow show.

So I was wondering what anybody else has done so they could ride or made sure they had a season ?

I really haven't given up anything to ride. But I almost was going to miss out on the 2008 SW ride. Due to my truck having $3000 worth of work done to it. :bash: But I still have weekends to ride. w00t

work hard all summer to pay for the sport, and so I can have time off to ride in the winter, around school.

I had fusion surgery on my neck a couple years ago, and the first question I asked was will I be able to ride this year. That was in August. Man it sucked walking around in 90+ heat with a neck brace on. But man, riding was never better that winter.

Nah ! You just need to find one that like to RIDE ! :D


I have not scheduled any surgery's or anything like that to be able to ride, however i have given up every bit of vacation time so that I have ample day's to ride my sled in the winter. :thumbsup:

I have given up the opportunity to go on a free cruise with my parents because I wanted to go ride instead.

I gave up a traditional wedding ( willingly) to have a snomowbile wedding instead. :thumbsup:

Agreed. Didn't consider/figure that out first time around! This time though........
She was willing to learn, I was willing to make the time, have the patience to teach. So far, so good! It's working out well. She came off doing about 30mph in a corner, got right back on - and never said a word until I mentioned I caught the whole thing in my rear view.....
It's nice having a riding pertner ready and willing when you are!

As far as sacrifice, I look at it more on the order of priorities. I don't have a brand new car or truck, the biggest house, or the fanciest clothes, but I do ride.......

True that !

If it werent for my wife there would have been many times i would have nobody to go with. It sucks sometimes getting older . Everybodies lives get more complicated , house, wife ,kids, work . I sometimes miss being younger having no real cares but how I was getting up north to ride. Sleeping in the truck cuse you couldnt afford room, skippin work cuse you did really owe anybody anything , having ten guys in one room to save money , party till 3am ride at7am . good times :thumbsup:

Not to say they still dont happen just few and far between and more comfortable

For the last 7 years I had a job that committed me to weekends.
I lost alot of fun riding times due to that :bash:

Hubby is on the road 5 days a week now and only home on weekends.
I quit my job!! :D

This means I'm ready to ride when he is :thumbsup:
