Yesterday was six weeks for me. I started doing some walking earlier this week without the crutches, and things are loosening up very nicely.

Don't tell my doctor, but I actually took both the R90 and the KLR out last evening for a total of about 20 miles. All I can say is WHOO HOO!!! It's so strange to ride without any pain or discomfort whatsoever, but I think that I will be able to get used to it pretty quickly. I really had to do a ride, as I went out and bought myself a new Olympia jacket last week and I've been dying to try it.
I have an appointment at UC Davis on Wednesday, and I'm hoping that they'll okay me to start ridig a bicycle. I've lost about 18 pounds so far, and it'd be really nice to continue that trend.
