Default Doctor says no riding for three months!

Had a second surgery to fix my right arm last Wednesday. I suffered a "comminuted" fracture of the radius four years ago when I had a head-on with an out-of-control Subaru on the Dragon.

Dr. is very happy with the results, and is confident I'll be as good as old in a while.

But, he doesn't want me on a bike for three months!

So, I beseech you warriors of the road to post epic, novel, short story or snippet-length tales of travels made. Thusly I can stay connected, however tenuously, to my favorite hobby.

We rode the Kawi Conster over to this kid named Cain's house to get my son's bathing suit. He left it there a couple of weeks ago. It was GREAT!

Hope that helps.

Read the travelogue Roadshow by Neal Peart. An excellent story. I was in Joshua Tree last weekend circling around down through Julian. Heat was hot. Scenery was beautiful.People were wonderfully pleasant.Good luck with your recovery.

I rode my friend Christine's Sporster (with the 1200 conversion, cam, S-n-S, SE Stage 1, cam) back from the shop to her house at lunch today. F'er screams for a Harley, goes 120 in a heartbeat. She's all "medicated" on some heavy duty stuff, can hardly talk or talk, let alone ride. Won't give me any.

I finished my Apey Hanger conversion on Thursday. I picked up a used 4 over clutch cable for $10. from my bud at a local shop. It looked like sh*t though because it was way too long so I wound up re-routing my stock cable and using it. I rode to work Friday with no front brake just like the old spool hub springer days. Friday afternoon I stopped at the shop and had them fill and vacuum bleed my front brake, I told John the owner I'd give him the cable back because I didn't need it, he said cool, we'll call it good on the bleed..the deal was made, sealed with a handshake in true biker fashion..(sorry, ..got a little "highwayman" there..)

I brought the cable back.

Hooo!

I dunno if it's the pharmaceuticals or not, but I think you made me blush!

But y'know, if I figured there was half a chance you'd call me later...

Sarnaliduece, you always have had a little "provocateur" in ya...



While we're on the subject, we lost a lot of personalites in the shift, don't ya think? Some - good riddance. But there are several I miss. ALLCAPS, JB to name a couple.
