    Nov '12 MOTM - Mountain Mike



    Please congratulate
    Mountain Mike
    for being the

    November 2012 Member Of The Month.

    From Mike:

    Few people read more than half of these letters so I will make mine half as long and dare to hope you will read all of it!

    I am very thankful to be recognized as ST-Owners.com November Member of the Month, I will wear this badge proudly as I always admired those chosen before me and got to learn a little bit about them. Thank you Joe and all the other administrators for keeping this community going with your hard work managing the forum.

    I have been riding since 18 or 19, my love of a video game called Road Rash sprouted this desire to roll on two wheels. I quickly bought a 1979 Honda CM400T and started touring with it. I actually submitted my bike to be the official photo in the Wikipedia article. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_CM400

    I bought my 2nd and current bike '01 Honda ST1100 in late 2007 but it was not until my first wife left that I joined the forums. Motorcycling was my therapy and ST-Owners.com was my support group. Life is better thanks to all of you. You have seen me through many of my major life changes from divorce, single life, dating, my progression through Iron Butt challenges, homelessness, engagement, buying my first home, my first rally, marriage, and hopefully many more!

    I feel like the worst Member of the Month ever. Through all of my life changes I have managed to remain a very active member until I bought my first home. My free time and funds have decreased sharply so I have only gone to a couple local events lately and check the forums only once a week or so. To counter this I threw a BBQ at my house and it was a great success, and I hope to repeat it next year.

    Going forward I hope to place first this year in the coldest ride and continue to fit in a few ST events and Iron Butt rides, but one thing's for sure I will never leave my family of riders, you guys and girls are the world to me and I love you all!

    Excuse me while I go back to soldering this dripping elbow in the basement.

    Congratulations Mike!

    A well deserved award for a great guy!

    Hope we can hoist another moonburger together again someday! (or even a home made one!)
    All other road users are idiots, ride accordingly.

    Congrats, Mike. Well deserved. :thumbup:

    Little known fact -- Mike is the only person ever to make a tuna omelette in my kitchen.

    I am honored to have taken two of the photos posted above, which means I have had the good fortune to ride with Mike.

    Mike and I both started out on Honda CM400's (mine an E, his a T).
    Ride. Good.

    WELL DONE MIKE!!

    You've always been nothing but helpful and cheerful when I see you, no matter how exhausted you are from riding the 10,000 miles a day you seem to call "a good start." Ha, couldn't help the quote after your Halloween costume, LOL! Been a pleasure to know you!

    Congrats Mountain Mike. Very happy for you!
    On the plains of hesitation lie the bleached bones of those who on the very threshold of victory sat down to rest, and while resting died.
