It worked out fine -- I could actually control the throttle and front brakes very well. The only problem was operating the clutch -- my left hand is still weak, and I can't use my middle finger, so I had to adopt more of a full-arm motion for pulling in the clutch lever.

But it was just too damn nice out on Saturday, and I was too pissed off at being cooped up inside. No, this won't be a regular occurrence -- I want to heal properly -- but mental health is important too.

Hi Mark,
I'm glad that you are healing and already starting to ride.
It was really a pleasure to ride with you, Jason and Roman.
We should do it again just to take a Cindy's picture instead of just buying a bunch of t-shirt and stickers
