Six registered, and winter ain't here yet! Must be something good about to happen this Spring!
Probably was....until I just registered.
Sorry folks...pack your raingear.

Thanks, surgery went well, time will tell if it was successful.  Went home on Friday and haven't had a pain pill in 24 hours, doesn't mean I am not in pain, just managable with tylenol now

I'm currently in 2019 travel planning stages. This may work but would likely be bringing RT(and spouse?) with bike in tow, likely camping. Hit Cliff's after then head to MN for the fourth resurrection of the Johnston brother's annual fishing, drinking, and now OHV riding, extravaganza.

Supposed to day 'painful as all helll' and 'I can't recommend it to anyone'...
Now I'm actually considering it.

What timeline did they give you for being back on 2 wheels? (their recommendation....not yours ;-) )

6 months for the bike, two weeks for the car  I guess the thought of a motorcycle incident vs a car are far worse for the neck.  I am thinking 4 moths should do it though.  I don't see how you are putting up with the pain vs having pain with the surgery, which is there but it is easing up by the day

I was married. My tolerance for pain is pretty high.  :rotflmao:


But....
The nerve killing they did last month is already starting to 'feel' again.
Not as bad as it was, but I can feel the burning again starting down my arm.
It lasted a month.
So...we're getting closer to the 'end'.

Registered and looking forward to it. There should be 3 possibly 4 in our group.
I plan to lead some rides as I know the roads pretty well. More details as we get closer.

Long enough! Not to mention shop cleaning, you didn't think always that clean & neat did you? Thens there's grocery shopping. A lot of grass cutting, Kurt gets fussy if the grass is a little tall.   :nananana:

I may still try to squeeze it in, just not counting on it. Would definitely be last minute though.
