I'm a Sever Hemophiliac and I have been riding for approx 20 years. I personally think that his age is more of a factor than Hemophilia. If you would like to talk, Im available.

I just joined this sight and I saw your post from over 2 years ago. Having had motorcycles since I was 10 made me curious of your outcome. I am Severe A also. Hope all is well. Glenn
