Like you, I came to this game later in life. Since I added a little bike to the stable (WR250R), I feel even my mediocre skills increased a big jump even when I go back to the bigger bikes off-road. Having a small bike to play on also makes Day Rides a whole different deal!

w00t w00t!

I had my final appointment with the Surgeon today! Clean bill of health, rolled his eyes and made a face when I told him I'd been riding, but I am cleared to start upscaling to my regular duties!

X-Ray's showed good, solid calcification at the fracture - and the fracture lines were barely visible. I have instructions to continue strength training and building endurance.

As an Orthopedic Surgeon - he had some pretty screwed up ideas of what do do with a motorcycle, but I just look at it as keeping him employed. (He suggested nuking it from orbit, or just a bonfire)

Thanks for all the support I received here.... You FFs have been awesome.
