Obviously, I can't ride far or on any rough terrain but just getting to this point is a huge relief. Crashing will probably not promote the healing process, so i will have to watch out for that. :)

Glad to hear your recovery is progressing so well!

Looks like that will be a good weekend to be away from the REZ and my house and gone to travel gravel...



Avoid a pirate fest a mile from my house... :)

I don't fear them. I just don't like the noise. And the bad driving. And the drunks that ride 15 miles to drink a beer and act like they just rode an Iron Butt... Anything besides a sports team or military that requires matching outfits is suspicious in my book... And if they ever fix that idle issues that all Harleys seem to have, I might like them more... But for now, I'll stay away for the day cause I'd rather be chasing Bob than listening to "potato, potato, VROOOOOOOOOM potato, potato, potato... VRoooom Vrooom Vrooom potato..." all day...

Does this mean we don't have to listen to Mouthy Dave's reports on riding your bikes and giggling like a school girl?!?!?

He will still giggle like a school girl regardless of my bikes being involved.

He said wheelies are fine, as long as I don't do them like Supah! I guess at this point your wheelie superiority is legendary. ;)
