  • Congratulations on fixing you back munch.
    "$200 bucks is less than a visit to my lumbar specialist for a half hour visit. "
    I think you have identified why none of the specialists have told you about this.

    • Exactly my thoughts Allan.

      • We've got a pretty good second hand shop here in town. There have been quite a few of almost every sort of "fitness device" known to man in them.

        I don't think I have ever seen on of those in there. That alone speaks volumes - I do know a few people who have them. Thy have kept them and use them.

        Relaxation and gentle traction is possibly the best alignment aid one can provide for the spine. I used to use the kids' climbing bars to hang by my hands. This worked to correct a whoopsie in my lower back as a result of a lift and rotate sort of injury (disk compression and displacement) which was very painful. Of course, hanging by the arms can do nothing for the neck vertebrae. That was not where my problem was.

        It took somewhere between 6 and 10 "hangs" over a couple of weeks, before one day I heard and felt a "clunk" after which I was simply fixed. The problem with hanging by one's hand is in getting completely relaxed in other parts of the body while working the hands and forearms hard, AND in the amount of time one can actually do it.

        Yours is a very sensible solution, Munch. I don't think any specialist is going to find too much wrong with it as home therapy. There is no movement or manipulation (like rotation) or pressure involved.
        The trick is to grow old. "Growing up" is less important than surviving.

        • Edge Run

          Last weekend was the annual 'Edge' Memorial Run. A short but quick run on the last Sunday of May. Starts on the hills above Christchurch and ends up on top of another hill at a pub about 40ks away, then it's back to my place these days for scones and coffee and anything else that fits. Not very good pics K1W1, but my fingers were too cold to hold the camera and click things at the same time. About thirty riders this year. Again, we got away with a fucking cold but dry day. Lots better than the rain or ice and snow in other years

          • Pics and link to vid of the Southern Classic I just went to. This is my baby that I seeded and now it's all grown up. I even get a glimpse of myself on track at about 3.45.

              I found just the right spot to put it on display.

                      • I needed a good day out Allan The last few weeks have been pretty dismal on the 'going somewhere', days.

                        My bro is refusing to die with any dignity and it's been a real sad, stressful and wishing he would just go type of time.

                        To catch up with friends and other like minded types did my head a lot of good.

                        I'd forgotten how cool a job my friend Rob had done on the Sportster, and that little lineup just made it all perfectly clear.

                        Rob passed with great dignity and rode that bike until three days before he'd had enough,

                        He checked into hospital to check out and I miss him a lot, even eleven years down the track.

                        He makes my nasty, selfish brother look like the cunt he is, and that makes me not want to be there for him at all.

                        I'm trying hard to feel no remorse or guilt, for feeling no remorse or guilt for my attitude at the moment.

                        • Hi munch, don't beat yourself up about
                          "
                          trying hard to feel no remorse or guilt,
                          for feeling no remorse or guilt for my attitude at the moment. "

                          Fully understand how you feel.


                          My sister was in Toowoomba Hosp,
                          a few years ago.
                          Even though her papers were marked,
                          "Do Not Resuscitate."

                          The Dr's kept trying to save her.
                          From real bad cancer; all through her.

                          My nephew & myself told them to let her go,
                          & if she was an dog or cat,
                          the RSPCA would be all over them for cruelty.

                          But the cockheads kept trying all sorts of things.

                          I lost count of the trips from Here to the hospital,
                          as they would ring & say "get here as quick as you ca."
                          So a mad dash up there, (262 klm.)
                          only to be told the next day,
                          "go home, nothing is going to happen here".

                          Would have been easier for all, if she went earlier.

                          Some times you have to be cruel to be kind.

                          Thoughts are with you in this time Bro,

                          Good to see you are trying to get on with your life,
                          catching up with friends is a great way to do it.
                          "If you're gunna be a "Smart Arse"
                          First make sure you're Smart.
                          Otherwise you're "Just an Arse!"

                          • Sorry to hear that mate. Like all things good and bad it will pass.
                            Good to see you honoured Rob by getting his bike out for a showing, where was the show? Smash Palace?

                              It was the Smash Palace show at Paddy's place on Linwood Ave. Paddy owns a fair percentage of the Indians on display. He loves Robs sporty so it gets asked along every year. Paddy rode his 100 year old Indian on the last Edge run, if you remember. The chopper with no front brake and a Morris 10, back wheel and tyre. I thought that the heavy rain had turned into a monsoon, until I saw the size of the rooster tail off his back wheel and landing on my head. I fucked off away from him real quick.

                              A link to the show.

                              • Nice vid. I watched it right through a couple of times. That must be some kind of record for me.

                                Great show. Thanks for posting that.
