Not to change the subject, but that looks like some great surgical work. Nice 3-D x-ray too. Can you please remind the US folks how much your surgery was? Do you need insurance to pay for it? Are you going to be responsible for an insurance deductible?

In the US a procedure like that would cost about $30,000 or so US Dollars.

Only $30,000? Maybe a little more ... Universal healthcare vs. US healthcare debate here we go
I once got in a bad accident in Italy. I required 15 stitches on my head. I was taken to the red cross and my total bill was $8.00 for the stitches. To take them out it was free. Here in the US I paid $386 to have stitches taken out in 1984.

Back on Topic, the bike does not look bad and I am sorry your summer is over even before it started. I was just in the market for boots and your post has me leaning towards stiff boots as well.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.


Andrew
