yes, inner strength,and wisdom gained is given from higher power ! I believe in Christ, our Lord. He gives me strength,hope ,and ability to go on ! I have issues with my back and neck as well, and am grateful to be able to ride at all ... or race. I do both, and sometimes wonder why. My excuse is that it keeps me in shape , but I don't do any of it enough to actually be effective. I'm trying. We do save on fuel expenses , by riding our motos ! Good luck, with everything , and know Christ... you won't go wrong in the end. Alot of folks feel we are getting nearer to the end, but no one knows...Scouts say:Be prepared. Sounds good to me, I'm ready to be done with this mess we are all in ! God bless u ! Ride safely !
