I would, but that asshole is a cripple, and I'd feel bad about beating a cripple up.

Good news and bad news from from the surgeon today. Good news, I'm completely cleared to do Sandblast The bone is healed, and now I just have to work on getting strength back in my shoulder.

The bad news, I now need another surgery to remove at least one of the screws, maybe the whole plate. I wonder if I get the $900+ per screw back?

I would keep the screws in and keep your value up . I broke my ankle at last years Sandblast, and plan to keep all the hardware in there...a plate and 7 screws.

On a serious note, I am curious why you need to remove the screws?

It's tough to tell from that angle, but it looks like one of the screw tips might barely protrude through the other side of the humeral head, which would cause a lot of irritation of the joint surface. Maybe that's it.

Many folks feel better after hardware removal though. It can be just annoying to have it in there.

That is a LOT of hardware. Looks very nicely healed up though!

Yep, the one screw appears to have penetrated all the way through. I have a CT scan to confirm. The doc's and to a certain extent my thinking is that the bone has healed much better than they ever would have thought, there is no good reason to chance having the joint messed up down the road by that screw.

Also, the plate's top "lip" may, at some point down the road, impact the top of the shoulder, so it might need to go as well. Right now, I don't have enough range of motion for it to be an issue, but it could be in the future.

My plan is to get it done in April, right after the baby comes. The initial injury got me out of 4 months of diaper changing. This new surgery should get me out of at least 6 more weeks. So, all in all, this injury hasn't been too bad.

I had a similar situation with my knee injury (stupid tree jumped out in front of my at Black River Stages). One of the screws was catching on a ligament. Once the injury healed it felt a LOT better to get that screw out.

Have fun in the sand boys.
Bummer Ara... i was looking forward to riding again!

I'm curious, what all is required for the EXC to XCW conversion and what's the benefit?

Desmog, rejet, regear, mod the pipe for the pre-FI bikes.

For the FI bikes, it's a bit more complicated and involves switching the FI computer, if I understand it correctly.

I have a 2012 500 that's FI. Do all the desmog stuff and there is a xcw map the dealer loads up, Same computer just loading a new map. There was plenty of map settings for the 690 that you could do yourself with a laptop and a cable. They seem to have made it a dealer only remap for now.

The XCW does not come with a street tittle. So the only legal way to have an XCW is buy an EXC, which comes with a street tittle, and make the conversion. I had to change the front and rear sprockets, new longer chain, desmog, load the XCW map, remove the ignition key, remove the turn signals, and swap the tail section with an XCW tail.

my 09 husaberg did not come with a street title...just a statement of origin. I was able to put lights on it and fill out a form at the DMV..then have it checked over at a moto shop and now it is street legal.

Finally got around to making camping reservations at H. Cooper Black.

Who else is camping there? Would be good to have a few post-race beers around a campfire and talk racing.

I know we are camping but not sure where. We should be there Tuesday some time and riding (not in the park) and up for downing some beer.
