A bevy of internal and external pockets, pouches, and storage compartments make these bags ideal for carrying everything from tools and small personal items to clothes and larger items.

It's A Story About The Journey, Not The Destination

Why We Ride is a story about who we are. Individuals with a desire to dream, discover, and explore. Seeking a life outside our daily confinements and sharing those moments together. It’s a story about the journey, not the destination.

Motorcycles represent the milestones of our lives. From a kid’s dream come true, to a retiree’s return to freedom. From a family riding together on the sand dunes, to hundreds of choppers carving through the canyons — the bond is the same. It’s about the passion of the riders and the soul of their machines.

Your senses will heighten as the world rushes in, your heart will beat to the pulse of the engine, your mind will race and set you free. Once you let a motorcycle into your life, it will change you forever.

By Peter Starr in Health Care Weekly Review, Michigan Edition, February 25, 2013, Volume 29, Issue 8

 

Editor’s note: This article is a continuation of the research by Peter Starr, Editor-at-large for Health Care Weekly Review™, on the subject of prostate cancer.

In the nine years that I have been studying natural healing modalities for the reversal of prostate cancer without conventional treatments, I have also learned about ways we men can change elements of our life to reduce the risk of inflammation, that in turn will help your prostate. I am not talking here of diet and supplements but the other part of our lifestyle, namely exercise, the way we move and the way we sit.

I have ridden a bicycle for most of my 70 years and along with so many bicyclists I have ridden with the hard leather saddle that has the prong that protrudes forwards under the genitals. This style of seat creates a pressure right at the perineum area, which is directly below the prostate. In fact if one rides for a long time – usually several hours, that area of the body can “fall asleep” and give a tingling sensation caused by the restriction of nerve energy and blood flow. Abuse of this area can extend upwards to the prostate and can become the root cause of inflammation, which in turn may increase the potential of other prostate disease.

I have known some dentists that sit for long hours working on patient’s teeth in seats that also create unwanted pressure on the perineum. Many suffer from similar symptoms as the bicyclists and experience unwanted outcomes and disease. Given this knowledge, it behooved me to seek a solution.

On a recent business trip to Italy to interview some Italian doctors about attitudes towards natural prostate cancer treatments I came across a dentists chair that had a gaping hole in the middle. I immediately recognized the advantage for men who spend a long time sitting – no pressure on the perineum area. I learned that the seat was inspired by an American design of horse saddles from the 1850s – the McClellan Trooper saddle. If anyone needed relief it would have been cavalry riders! I brought this Italian dentist’s seat back to my office.

Next I went shopping for a bicycle seat that would achieve similar results and I found it on the internet from a Canadian company. As a life-long motorcycle rider who enjoys long rides, I had to acquire a seat for my motorcycle, and thanks to Tom Seymour of Saddlemen I got that too. Now Saddlemen offer many models of motorcycle seat with this central relief. See the attached photos and understand that we live in a world of great stress and toxicity. Sometimes it is the simple and doable things that can make a difference.

Be conscious of how you treat your body and you might just avoid another reason to contract a chronic disease.
