    FWIW: Rapid Roy has given us a lot of nothing when he started his now classic thread ?This thread is going to be stale and unimaginative, don't look and in the process we had a bunch of laughs on the forum. He has been a regular forum contributor over the years. We have followed his and his families ups and downs dealing with his daughter Rachael's chronic illness. Now we have a chance to help one of the best guys I have met in my association with the BMW MOA.

    Roy found an amazing pedaling unit that insurance has deemed "experimental". Whatever. Let's take care of what they won't, and help Rachael work toward walking again. You can help by going to and helping Rachael and Roy.

    Fact or myth: We pride ourselves in taking care of our own on the road and on the forum. Here is a chance for the readers of this thread to do just that.
