Hi Susan and Grant,
we are very sad to hear that. We wish you all the necessary power and positive thoughts to pull through this.
You have done so much for the overland motorcycle community and even though we have only met you a couple of times at different meetings, thanks to your work and being such a source of inspiration, we want you to know that you will remain in our thoughts during this difficult time.
My (Patrick's) father had the same diagnosis 2 years ago. He opted for the cut it out option. His surgery was on a Monday and on Sunday he spent the day riding the alps as he feared he may never ride again. We are more than happy to say that this last February he joined us for 3 weeks in Thailand to go offroad riding with his sons. There is always hope.

I hope it all works out well for you Grant.
I had mine out 2 years ago after my first PSA count came in at 23.
Since having mine out, 6 friends have had the same so it seems pretty common.

Everything AOK to date

Keep your pecker up... whoops, sorry, you cant

Susan, Thank you for sharing with us all. Personally I appreciate greatly what you have both done for the motorcycling community at large and I'm sure with the best treatment Grant will be back at it and up to his usual antics in no time.

It's even more important in times of need to keep perspective and you seem to be able to do that extremely well.

Fight on!

thx for sharing. All my best wishes to you & Grant! Just keep on fighting.
When my wife got breast cancer, we all believed that this was the end. Now it's 15 years ago and she is fit & healthy. Same for with friends, who had prostrate cancer, and are still alive and kicking.

Just keep an optimistic attitude!

Only when we pause to wonder
do we go beyond the limits of our little lives.

Daniel and I send our thoughts and best wishes. Focus on the positive for sure it helps the chemo work harder! I know about the beard thing I only saw my dad once in 46 years without one and it freaked me out!! HUGS

Dear Grant and Susan,
There's nothing new to be said but just to say it ourselves probably help a bit I guess... I'm sure they will successfully Poison it and Cut it all out.. It's good to know that you are in Good hands. we will all be behind you for the entire process and even further like we have in the last 25 years. cancer is a big and scary word that will often push you to make a move more quickly toward something we've been putting off many times like who knows? maybe another RTW for the Johnson's? We'll see You in Nakusp, all the best, all the rest and nothing but positive vibrations...
Jerome, Mercedes and Erik
