Welcome to the fold! Cancer is a disease that affects the families of sufferers as well and i know how it feels to lose family members. At least by folding we know we are contributing to rid the world of this evil

Welcome to the team, and thanks for joining up! That computer of yours should be able to put out a lot of units.

You have a rather peculiar username - whats the story behind it? Random keyboard hits, or?

Welcome rd350ypvs.
Sorry about your loss.
I think that most of the people that Fold or Crunch, do so because of the loss of a family member or friend.
I just started Folding, but had been running UD for over a year.
I lost my aunt to cancer last August, and have lost many extended family members and friends to the disease.

One thing about Folding is that they are also looking for cures for other diseases too.
My step-grandson has Muscular Dystrophy. He's 12 years old.
My mom has macular degeneration and is losing her site. She also has a a blood disorder where she makes too many platelets, and there is no cure for either at this time.

I Fold in hopes that it may also help find a way to combat these and other diseases and disorders.

So, I am happy that you have joined us in our effort to help.
Thank you.

Thanks for all your kind words. They are much appreciated.

@Allan

I used to own 2 Yamaha 350 powervalves, bloody fast bikes in their time


@LP

My stepson has Duchene Muscular Dystrophy, he is 19 and doing well thankfully.


Anyway greets to all and my heart goes out to all those who have lost relatives and friends through this dispicable illness.

Was that the LC or the model before it?
edit: doh, the one before it was a 400 wasn't it?

That gives me some hope for his future.
The doctors believe he has Duchene's too, but it took them awhile to decide or agree that he has MD, and what kind.
The poor kid has been through so many tests in the last year.. I really feel for him.

So thank you, and welcome once again.

@dod

It was the F2 model made in Brazil

The LC was the first model, superceeded by the powervalve version, hence the YPVS

There was the RD125,250,350,400 & the daddy of them all the 2 stroke 500 (absolutely nuts for it's day)

@LP

If you need to ask any questions about Duchene, don't hesitate to ask m8, if i can be of any help at all
