First Post accident ride

I know this might not seam like a big ride report but I got smacked pretty good by a pickup in November. Today I rode to work for the first time since. I had knee surgery that kept me from riding. Not 100% back together yet but hoping the pain in my knee allows me to keep riding.
It sure feels good to be back in the saddle .

Onya for getting back into it. Hope all goes well with the knee.

Congrats on being able to ride again

I know from personal experience how exciting that is after a long lay-off due to a smash.

For me the first few minutes were a little odd,then it was business as usual.

I blew up my knee (not from riding) and was out of the saddle for over 6 months. That SUCKED! This is what I was reduced to:



Glad you made it back to the correct way to get around! Have fun and mind the idiots in pickups!
