I came to stlar in spring 2013 as a freshman in college. I had my 1995 EX500 Ninja.

I learned so much about friendship, riding, and bike maintenance from all of you. I bought a speed triple that was out of my league shortly after joining. Thanks to the members of this group, I was able to maintain and safely ride it.

If I'm being honest, I did not like or enjoy my time at school. I had some dark feeling times. I didn't like most of my peers, and I didn't care for STL city. I never felt like I fit in or shared interest. This (STLAR) was my home. You were my second family. I've had numerous people in this group go above and beyond for me. 

Today I received news I passed my North American Pharmacy Licensure Exam (NAPLEX). It's the board exam for pharmacists. Several times I wondered how I would ever make it this far. You guys and gals rooted for me and believed in me from the start. There were several times I doubted myself. There were nights I couldn't sleep, and wondered how/if I was even going to make it through school. STLAR was my getaway. Talking on the site, making rides on the weekend, it was my escape.

 

I was pissed off my Triumph left me stranded on the way to Bixby but I got a tow home, and a garage to store my bike in thanks to this group. I even got help fixing it up. I was pissed off we got tickets in Hardin IL, but I laugh about it now. There are random meaningless parts from several rides that I remember vividly. 

Thank you to every single one of you that interacted with me, and made these memories with me. There are no groups that can replace you.

 

I still plan to return once in a while, and make some non-member rides.

Really, I wanted to extend my gratitude for STLAR's hospitality. I learned so much about my riding, my bikes, the meaning of friend's, and myself.

Thank you.

Congratulations on your achievement and I am glad you felt this group was part of it. I never doubted your ability to accomplish your work in school but I do understand those moments of doubt. You will encounter similar moments throughout your career but to a lesser degree.

Good luck with your next endeavor and hopefully we will ride together again.

Congratulations, and good to have known you!  I agree, a special group of people.  I hope we can keep it going until the rest of your generation 'matures' into hooliganism...   Good luck; you've picked a career that should keep you in exotic motorcycles!  Let us know when you're coming back to visit!
