It's been great to browse through whilst on the mend, out of the sling now at last, (8 to 10 weeks I can't remember how long now).
Off all the drugs except for the Merlot, into the Physio, (lifting the Merlot is still too hard). Doc says about 18 months to two years before I can lift my elbow to shoulder height; I'm going to prove him wrong!
Just realising what sort of damage If done now, not one of my most brilliant efforts.
Looking forward to getting back on the bike again, (another month or so yet), it’s going to be easy does it on the Tiger for quite a while, no more gung ho off road stuff for a year or so.
Cheers bwvtom
Don't suppose you want to join us overnight at Robertstown next week Brett? You'd be very welcome and could roam about the property if you wanted to..

Some have had around 40K on them (around the $3.5K mark), and wondering if that's getting to major service territory - which he can do himself, otherwise spending an extra grand seems to get the odometer down to the 20K mark, or closer to it.

Perhaps someone here has one on offer, or is thinking about it - if so let me know (PM is best). He lives up at Lyndoch.

Considerations include preference for a long-range tank, and ability to carry soft panniers (?racks).
PM sent.

To be truthful Trev, me and NoGasman have been considering a couple of 6fiddy Vstroms as an inexpensive alternative
