5. Had to repeat step 2...this time I stayed in bed for a year (well...)

To do what Jorge did that soon was---to me---absolutely petrifying!!

But I guess he's OK.

My concern as well, with 13 screws in my right arm holding the plate (as I posted earlier), even pushing my motorcycle around the garage was out of the question. Just moving it! Not racing at 200 mph! Superman!

But, as it was noted earlier, he gets 10 mill to do that, I get squat to ride.
bikeless. And doing ok with it. For now.
