Good plan. Where can I get info on that?

I won't be riding for the next couple of weeks, I think. I slipped in the mud while playing disc golf up at Angola and sprained the hell out of my knee.

Anything with forward controls is right out. Uncomfortable and unnerving. Who thought that was a good idea? Oh, and anything with bars that put my hands at the same height as my shoulders.
