Let's wind back.......

It's raining and another inmate inspired me to dig through some photos of great 08 RIDING memories..........


First real outing by myself since surgery in Feb.
Mid April
Was so great to hear the bikes and smell the gas.








I can still dream, right?







First ride back late april.
Even still in my 'boot' I knew at that point I would never give it up.
One of the cooler moments I've had on a bike.








FIRST TIME BACK ON THE YELLOW MACHINE!
This was another great day!









Coming back from Palm Desert..........









A quick trip to Tahoe.........










Taking it easy at Supermoto school in late June.........
The Dr was finally out of tranq darts...........







And the new black bike............

First break in June of 06, water skiing
Second group of fractures & mayhem, Dec 06 Low side on the MC.
2 Surgeries Feb 08.

Each time min 6 week non-wt bearing recoup .
Part of the reason I live large when I can.

No fun being down. The last episode was the worst (other complications arose) and was in bed for almost 2 months and was in the cast and on crutches for 3.
It was a hard time emotionally as well.

An active mind and weak body is definitely hell on earth.

I'm happy to be upright, even with all the little physical hiccups now.
Also a big part of why I am waiting as long as I can for the next surgery.

Enjoy every part of every day as much as you can. Even when the chips are down.

Go out and smile at someone. 99.9% of the time they'll smile back.
Go out and smile at life. 99.9% it will smile back.











SUPERSCHWINN!!

Great Attitude

We all get kicked and go down from time to time. You've got a great attitude, it will see you thru-

I always remember what my Dad taught me when I was a wee pup:

Every meal a feast,
Every paycheck a fortune,
Every day above ground a good one.
