back at it..kinda

So I blew out my knee back in 2012 while riding in one of swampy's dixie dual sport get togethers. Was misdiagnosed as a minor injury that turned out to be a full acl, meniscus tear and meniscus root tear. I was anxiously awaiting my return to the trails in early 2014. But as luck would have it, I managed to dislocate my left shoulder for the fifth time and turns out, for shoulders, the fifth time is the charm. Back under the knife and months of recovery and therapy later and I'm finally feeling confident enough to start twisting the throttle again. I stopped even reading these forums after a while and almost sold my bike thinking I'd never be able to ride at any level I would enjoy anymore, it sucked.

But, finally back at it. My ride home from work is a cut through of about 6-8 miles of state forest. Glad I held onto the bike and looking forward to doing some more riding! Now I just need to freshin up the bike! Needs new fork oil, tires, brakes, chain and sprokets! lol

Welcome back to the land of the dirty.

Experience says don't get out too early. Make sure you are really healed or it could get worse.

Good to hear that you are getting back on the Dirt TRAIL

At least with all your surgerys your are keeping the Medical people's wallets happy.
