Motorcycles And RA

Dual Sport Life
“If you never take chances … you’ll never have anything to talk about.”

My name is Terry. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, but I am determined to enjoy life and not let this disease dominate me. I live with pain everyday, although most days it is a low scale pain. Dual Sport Life is an analogy of my struggle with RA. I have raced motorcycles for a large of my life, but have just recently found dual sport riding. The combination of my RA and land closure in the National Forrest’s in our area make dual sport riding a good alternative for me. I also love dogs, and have come to the conclusion that “Little Dog” owns us, not the other way around. I invite you to follow my blog as I will be posting on living with RA, dual sport rides and occasionally reliving some old racing memories.

Terry, whose site I have just come across, has been blogging for the past couple of years. He writing brings together his passion for dual sport motorcycle riding and his life with rheumatoid arthritis! This is definitely one combination that I have not come across before.

    I love riding and will continue to ride motorcycles with my RA. I will always find a way.
    At this time my husband is building me a lightweight chopper that is automatic that I will be able to handle on my worse days with my RA.

    I’m curious about what hurts the most. I have RA and want to start biking. I’m young (31) and my disease is well managed so I am not too worried but it would be great to hear more about your experience.
