  1. It was very cathartic looking at photos and deciding those to upload for our church's A/V folks to compile into the video. The songs were ones I knew that were special to him (and me too). This process helped me remember so many, many wonderful times (among many other times/events that were not highlighted in the video).
  2. If you wish to watch his Memorial Services, they can be found by searching his name on YouTube. There are two services posted due to COVID limiting church capacity. While similar, the services are different as several different people shared in each service (there are a couple of people who shared at both). A nice video montage was also shown.
  3. Well...don't know why I couldn't find it yesterday (thought I used the same search text), but I just located it and requested to join the group.
  4. Please let me know the FB page...I cannot find it. Thank you.
  5. Thank you all for your kind words. I have been pulling photos for a video montage that will playing during his services. It will be available to stream at some point afterwards and I will post it here.
  6. It is with deep sadness that I inform you that my husband of 26 years (together for 32) passed away of a heart attack on Saturday, January 9th. I was with him and it happened quickly -- hopefully with little to no pain. His obituary is at this link and includes information about the services should anyone wish to attend: www.newcomerstlouis.com/Obituary/194435/Stephan-Bienz/St Peters-MO Note registration is required. For those that knew him/us, prayers are much appreciated for me, our pup, his family and dear friends.
  7. I was just thinking about Mike a couple of days ago...and I am sad to hear of his passing. Mike's will to survive surely kept him going, and I can only imagine the many prayers (along with mine) that are being said for Mike's family and friends. Some of the things I remember most about Mike: - You hardly ever saw him without a smile on his face - He made you feel welcomed whether you were a newbie or a long-timer, whether you were on a ride or at a club meeting/event - He was genuinely funny and just plain fun to be around - He never got tired of all the jokes about having to add oil to his bike after every ride - and he got a kick out of "Mike's dedicated quart of oil" sitting on the shelf for him in Bixby - He was one of THE most skilled riders in STLAR - and a blast to watch for the few seconds before he was out of sight (or on video for those of us that don't have front-rider pace). He has a legacy in STLAR...at least for me...that will live on. I hope he is riding like the wind right now!!!
  8. http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/nicky-hayden-a-tribute-from-his-brother-roger/ Tears continue to fall each time I've been reading online about Nicky since the accident...he touched people deeply during his 35 years here.
  9. Regarding the knee pads riding too high when on the bike, I had the same problem in a pair of textile pants. While the knee pad pockets were not adjustable either, the pads were shaped such that I was able to insert them upside down in the mesh pockets to get knee coverage. What is lost is the coverage below the knee...which was exchanged for a bit of above-knee coverage now. Of course this is just a potential interim solution...get the best gear that fits your budget and time frame.
  10. Happy birthday Robbie and hope you are are mending up well!
  11. Dave, hope you have an awesome birthday celebration!
  12. Oh my!!! Thoughts and prayers to Nicky and family.
  13. I know I prefer left handers for better line-of-sight, and there is also one other key reason for me, which wasn't mentioned here (unless it's covered in the big article which I have not yet read). On left handers, my throttle arm is resting nicely on the tank and my wrist and hand have very comfortable range of motion/alignment/angle/access (however you want to characterize it) with the throttle and in covering the brake. In right handers, these 'characteristics' are of course all different and, for me, the angle between my arm/hand and the throttle feels 'cramped'. I know I should probably be holding the throttle differently in right corners - more angular with fingers and using more of the bar to keep a straight line with my arm - but I've not consciously tried to work on that (and keeping the brake covered just the same).
  14. So sorry to hear this! Very bad injuries! The vertebrae and rib fractures will surely make for a very painful and long recovery period.
  15. Shane, hope you have an awesome birthday celebration!
