Take care. Igor

on the beamer front all the sidestand bits seemed fine,no huge play in the pivot ot the spring attachment plate.All the parts seemed very similar.Will get another pair of spring though so you can have yours back
Thanks guys. Agreed that I made poor choices on that day. I should have gone for a ride instead.

I'm getting much better. I'm in a moonboot, and am moderately mobile, but it's still a bit uncomfortable. I get x-rayed again in 1.5 weeks to see how things are getting on. I'm trying to enjoy the sit-and-do-nothing phase while it lasts. I have to say I'm mildly envious of your anti-cankle socks. Extremely un-envious of the rest of your setup though. I hope things go well with the specialist tomorrow.
Sorry you didn't make it down to the Dusty Butt after all.

For those that are interested, here are the Xrays. My Doctor is very pleased with progress. Has said that I can have another 32 days off, & that I might be able to get the brace off in 8 weeks. I can ride after that (but I am conscious I can't ride offroad unltil I am confident I can pick Gus up). No Physio. He warned ACC might try to push this, but that it could do more long term damage.

To quote Sesame St 'One of these things is not like the others, one of these things ain't kind of the same...'

It's just better when there's twins involved....
