get the doc to write a prescription to say the bike must be in your presence for a speedy surgery recovery. when I was much younger and dropped my knee cap on some rocks. after a time I would hobble out to the equiptment shed n look at the bike, later to kick it over n ride it in the snow. Did much to take to mind off the healing process. three tv stations and one rock station, it that thought kenny rogers was rock n roll, wasnt helping.
