A few things I quickly realized I forgot.
How to ride, clutch control, riding smooth, how to do a simple hop and the knee brace. I really like that last one. I rode around for just a short time and went and put the bike away before it was too dark. Got off the bike and then remember I had the brace on. That was ! If I can forget that it is there in such a short time the first time I wore it then it must fit pretty good.

Now to work on those skills that all went away over the past half year and knee surgery. I think by the time I get back up to speed the blown ACL and resulting surgery will be a year long speed bump. More peg time, watching the training DVD many more times, get the basics down again.
Glad to hear your on the road to recovery,mind if I ask what training video your referring to? I could go for some winter reading/viewing and I have a birthday coming up.My wife never knows what to get me so I usually just grab something small (tires/fork springs ect...) for myself and we're both happy.
