So please post up the link for the go fund me of have your buddy sign in and post it up. Heck, gives me a reason to update my paypal account!!
I still dont or ever had help like this before. Ive always helped others and myself not to ask. It is wierd being in this situation. One of my riding buddies "Patrick" did start a fund me page.

We have rode may miles. I dont make much money but hope to be able to afford another Strom after I get a livable place of my own. I dont imagine having any other bike.

Go Funding. They want to be funded as well. Mark it down to 5% (or less).

Thank you! Sorry you have not had a good time either. Lotts of people have been through a lot lately with the hurricane and all. Its just rough going trough this alone for myself and hope you are not.
They are doing what they can for her. I check daily. Also, im thinking about calling my state representative and see what he can recommend. Hes a great guy and has always answered the phone. Why not I figure....

Although You feel alone, you are not alone. There are people who want to help in any way they can. Don't be afraid to ask for help, I've found people are mostly giving when asked. Churches or other religious congregations always are there to lift people in need.
