Well today I finally got back on the Wing after having it sitting in the garage since Sept. 28 without being ridden.

It was 50 degrees this morning and I decided to see how it would feel to ride it after my surgery and healing time. I felt ok. I went for coffee with a couple freinds and then I went out for about a 30 mile spin.

They asked me if I wanted to ride with them to a place for lunch which is about 50 miles from here. I told them I did not think that would be a good idea just yet. I am still sore around the incision area and things are not all working quite right just yet.

It did feel good though. Maybe this afternnon if the sun comes out I might go for another short spin. It did feel funny as I knew if I had any problems and the bike got over center it would be down. There is no way I would try and hold it up if that happened.

Hopefully I will get back to work on the 20th of this month. I know it will feel good as well as strange. This has been the longest dry period I have ever had to experience as far as being off work and healing up from anything major. It has taken alot longer than I thought it would. Ronbein told me at the hospital that it would be slow and the man knew what he was talking about....

Super news Ross. Now, if you will put three shots of Ever Clear in the Metamusel, even Yellow Wolf couldn't keep up with you on the Dragon!

Best wishes for a complete recovery.

That is great Ross! The Wing is a part of your life, and I am sure you
felt alive on that 30 mile spin. I am glad you hadn't planned on attending
the Wingstock. If memory serves, that was the week-end you fell ill.

Now that's a bit of good news. Do you get the idea that folks want you to take it easy and not overdo just yet? Well, what can I say that would convince you to do just that?

Sounds like Kerrville next Spring might be a possibility, eh?
