I liked the seat on my short lived RT, the ergos on it were excellent, adjustable bars, heated grips, adjustable windshield and seat fun but flawed with the sh*tty fuel injection and linked power brakes. I wouldn't mind another one, I just wouldn't get an '02

Good to hear your Mom's OK. Hip replacements usually go real good for some reason, recovery time is pretty short. It's the knee replacements that take forever.

I got some damn good news today, I'm going to the Kennedy-Kreiger SCI ward in Baltimore where they do "repetitive motion" therapy, with electric stimulation. It's supposed to re-wire your spinal cord and the ability to walk. Here's a website from one of it's patients. Pat called me, and told me his story. Pretty amazing.

Soon I may be freezing my butt off on a motorcycle again, I can't wait...

Well in the medical marvel dept., I just completed a PETScan at the hospital. They poured radioactive glucose in my veins and made me glow from the inside out. It allows the doc to check and see if any cancer cells are still floating about my body.

The bonus is that the imaging girl told me that I'm radioactive for the next 8 hours and I should stay away from pregnant women and small children. Heck, I went to a friggin bar! What a great line!

That's excellent news Cuddy, they'll turn you into a Cylon and you'll be all set.

Maybe they'll give you one of those cool machine gun hands too..

A post of you doing just that would be the best one of all time.

(Check your PMs please. You owe me a helmet, Mr. Cuddy!)

Matt,

Best of luck with the therapy!

You might want to back off on the "product testing" for a bit... You don't want to catch fire when they hook you up to the e-stim machine!

I'm hopin' something like that works for you Cuddy! That would be fantastic! And for those freezing at 50, look into some warm riding gear. When I did a saddle sore 1000 on April fools day (a tradition), it snowed for about 100 miles of it and never got above 40.
