    Cataract Surgery Inconvenence

    Got the surgery on my right eye. Had to have it, as I was impaired seeing thru that eye. At the end of the procedure, I was told I had the beginning of the same problem on the left eye. Up till then I thought I would get a contact for the left eye. I agreed to get the left eye surgery. The problem was seeing great in new right eye, but I was still near sighted in left eye. Seeing was kind of lop sided and confusing. Finally, I took an older pair of glasses and removed the right lens, and tried the glasses on. It was an improvement; still not great. One eye corrected inside the eye and the other eye corrected with a lens about 1/2 inch in front of the eye. In about a week or so, will get the surgery on the left eye and really solve the problem of my sight. Iím really chomping at the bit to get back to riding my bikes.

    Got the surgery for eyes done. One more visit to the eye specialist group to finish the procedure; Tuesday I believe. Eye sight is much improved. Get some reader glasses; most important, start riding again. Eye therapy on two wheels in the wind. My personal diagnosis for mental peace and happiness.

    Congrats! It's been a year since I had the surgery (on both eyes). Still no regrets -- other than not convincing the Dr to do the surgery years ago!

    Sad News

    I hate to be the bearer of sad news. The passing of long time BMW rider Harlan T. Brown of central Arkansas. Harlan was a long time member of the Naturally Beemers of Arkansas. He was an active member and past president of the club. Harlan rode locally and long distance attending many of the rallies and campouts in and around Arkansas. You could not meet a more pleasant person to associate with. RIP Harlan, I miss you already.

    Time Flies/Getting Older

    Been outa the loop with my local club, the Naturally Beemers of Ar.. I had texted earlier about the passing of long time member of Harlan Brown. Just found out about the passing of another member, Rod Kilduff. Rod was very instrumental in the starting of the club. There was the Founding Five. Rod was a part of that, back in 1988, if I remember correctly. Over 30 years ago. Those who joined the 1st year were charter members. As soon as I heard about it , I signed up.

    Got my first newsletter from the club. It had a short listing of upcoming events. One listing a Saturday club lunch in Fort Smith, Ar.. 280 miles, one way. Basically one day 600 mile round trip. Did it, and that was the beginning of my club riding. Left in the dark, got home in the dark. Those were fun days of riding for me.

    Don Quales sent this to me about the vintage bike run coming thru Cape. Neat to see all the old bikes on a long ride. Bikes with kick start, drum brakes, carbs, tube tires, push rods, hard springer seats, etc.. Old school riding. My 1974 R90/6 is old school enough for me.
