Nope. I was digging back through the threads trying to verify the date and such. A couple of us were talking about it over the weekend and I wasn't sure if it was this coming weekend or the next, until you posted about a test run Saturday... (Which makes me believe it is the next weekend. Guess I should have put it in my phone calendar when you first posted it!)

the dates are 4-19,20,21. As we get close enough to get a somewhat relieable weather forecast we may have to reschedule if its a washout.

I just saw on the Weather Channel that in Pueblo, Co. high winds collapsed a Harley Davidson Dealership. Officials are still unable to determine if any of the motorcycles were actually damaged since it is not unusual to see a HD with parts and oil laying all around it.

There is a pic in JoMomma and a comment saying it is normal for them to start falling apart over 60MPH...

Quotes from JM:

"Yep, anything over 65mph and parts start falling off..."

"Had to lay the front end down."

I had a good doctor visit today. He said I am in the top 5 percentile for range of motion and recovery. Considering the setback from the fall down the stairs 6 weeks ago, he is overly pleased.
I still have to take it easy for the next couple of months, so the tendons can completely heal, but he did tell me I can begin easing around on the motorcycle in a few weeks. 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. :)

WOOHOOOOO! Great news!

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