Greg, I can't believe you were riding with a kidney stone! Some docs say it's the worse pain you can have while remaining conscious.
Well, at the time I didn't know that's what it was, but as the pain increased in waves, I suspected as much. Since I've never had a kidney stone before, I wasn't sure. Not a lot of fun, that's for sure.
I think you're basically unkillable Greg. Heart attacks and kidney stones while riding, not to mention your engagements in Vietnam. You're one tough son of a gun. I think a bee bite on my arse would be enough to get me off the bike and cry.
