    So turns out to be a separated shoulder and partially torn ligaments but surgery not needed just do PT, 4-6 weeks or so to heal. Doc said this is better than a fractured clavicle, having had 3 of those I think I agree :D

    Think hard about how you share this good news with wife & kids. You want to milk this for a lot of back rubs and home nursing...

    Decided to ride Blue Suzi up the loooooong driveway to the mailbox for the paper today. It had been a few (!) days since she’d been ridden, and you know these high-strung types don’t like to be ignored.

    But Suzi would not start. 3 days idle, and she was already overheated before I straddled her.






    And they keep asking why we’re looking at property in Idaho...

    3rd round of PT yesterday on the fubar'd shoulder, man it was torture! Lots of icing last night, PT lady tells me the pain will eventually go away and I'll get strength back once all healed up, I sure hope so.

    Ugh. Heal up. You’ll be ready to ride when it’s not 100 deg. Is the prognosis 100% full recovery and use of the shoulder?

    Yes but 100% at 55 won't be 100% at 25 :gerg

    True. At 55 you have both will and wisdom; at 25 you had only one of these. Be wary, Grasshopper, of judging your finish before the race is run...





    Deep thoughts. I’ll be here all week.

    I’m pushing 60. I broke my collar bone probably 8-10 years ago. Figured I’d be riding on track in 6 weeks. Took WAAAAY longer. Sucks.

    I hope you have better luck with that front fender bag than I have had with them!

    Safe travels my friend.

    Not to hijack the thread but do you have any more photos of that sled behind the bike?

    Drill holes in the j-hooks and fender. Run a zip tie through them. Bombproof.
