that is a bummer. We each have to make the choice that we feel is best.
What you could do.......get yourself a little convertible, something like a MG or a 80's Fiat. About as close to a bike as u will get on 4 wheels.
Any convertible would be nice. My daughter had a Sebring convertible and when she went to a different car, I kept that for quite a while. Convertibles are fun to drive. With one of the small ones, you could still take trips to the mountains etc and have a blast

Blood thinners for life...seriously? There's no amount of physical therapy or diet or lifestyle changes that could repair or offset the clots? That's beyond a bummer. Maybe they'll discover a work-around for you. In the meantime ATGATT to the max and ride it like you were made of glass.

Unfortunately, at my size, I'd have to ride with one cheek in each seat, and with the placement of the gear shift and emergency brake, it could be a very uncomfortable ride.
