I'm wondering if vibrations such as riding a motorcyle can cause weakness or temporary loss of motion?  It seems that every time I'm on the back of my boyfriends bike I have a very difficult time moving when I get off.  Anyone?  :)

Ladies,  have you thought of looking into a side car?  I know they can look whimpy but it would allow you to still enjoy the freedom of the ride without endangering others.

just a thought,

  I get that too!!! I get tingling sensations all through the middle or the saddle area and then when I need to get off of the bike my legs are tingling and feel like they are not quite there like jello legs. I have to stand still for a few minutes before I can start to walk.

I haven't told anyone because my hubby has already let me know that my days of riding on the bike are limited. I don't hold my self in place well and shift front and sideways a lot pushing him up on to the gas tank and forcing him to compensate for my lack of balance

. He isn't being cruel just stating a fact and letting me know that it is not as easy to take me for a motorcycle ride as it used to be. I already know this because it's not so easy for me to be on the bike either but it's just one more thing that I feel like I will be losing to my MS monster so like a child I am not giving it up!

Erin :)
