Ostomy bikers

I just had a new patch made and had it sewn on my jacket,it says   OSTOMY RIDERS
Im hopeing to start a nationwide awareness that just because we have a bag we cant still do the things we like.I'll be out there advertising everyday.I know of a few riders here on this site and Im sure it will raise awareness.Theres no dues Im sure we have already paid with our lives.

I ride, been riding for a long time before my ostomy. Still ride with ostomy, why would anyone question that we can't?     Kevin

Just started riding again thanks to my permanent illeostomy,i want one of these patches please,pm with info!

i had stop riding cause i was always in flare ups cause by chronic u.c. during my time off riding though i concentrated my anger on a 1980 honda cm400a hardtail bobber project and on may 16th of this year i rode her for the first time,was amazing!!

Good for you. I think that is a wonderful idea. I have an ostomy and am looking forward to riding again.

Hi Bikerboy,

I'd love a patch like that too - so - if you are selling them, let me know how to purchase one! Great idea! Good for you!

Originally I thought maybe I'd get  maybe one reply but this is overwhelming,and totally awesome.I was at a local harley shop where the ladies set up shop and sew patches for bikers.I asked this lady if she could make a patch.It cost me $20 for the patch and $10 to sew it on.I'll see if she wants to make more and I'd just sell them for what I paid plus postage.If there's some one out there that wants to make them and sell them thats fine with me.Im not a business man I just thought it would be neat and never saw  a patch before.
