1st, Mack - glad yer getting better.

Creep - in the late 70's I had a KX125. I broke my left arm (both the radius and the ulna) starting it up after refreshing the top end. It kicked back and broke my arm. Bones stuck through skin. Sucked.

Three weeks later, the doc put on a fiberglass cast, and I was riding the bike again that day. It was eight weeks before they took the thing off.

Much easier with a bum wing than a bad hoof, IMO.

Here's to ya, Mack.
