    I've tried kick starting the bike a few times without luck. My knee is good to walk on, but the kicking motion and any twisting is bad. I'll keep getting on the bike every few days, but at this point I'm feeling like the "kick" is still a long way off. If I had an e-start I'd already be riding, but probably shouldn't. I just aired up the tires on my bicycle and plan to try riding it some tomorrow, ....if I can find some flat roads around here! I think that will be a very good exercise for the knee.

    This injury has been a little bit of a drag, but I don't regret all the great riding I've done in the last few years. I don't mind the break from riding for a while, it's good to catch up on some other things that I've been needing to do.

    I'll be back on the trails eventually.

    We have a ramp.
    We have always had a ramp.
    But it's verboten to bring it.

    I have discovered the Ruckus suspension is, how shall we say it, limited? :lol3

    After a new fuel pump it does run OK now. Does around 40+ on a flat road.
