My wife had hers in March. I feel your pain. Hope she recovers quickly.
Hope all goes well with her back.
Prayers for her speedy recovery!
I hope all is well and she heals fast.
Thanks everyone for the comments. The first couple of days after surgery were really rough but Debbi is doing much better today.
@Thinwater just posted a video from a street ride in Tennessee back in August: https://advrider.com/f/threads/taking-2020-lemons-and-making-lemonade-video.1481042/#post-41763119
Glad to hear that Debbi is doing well... hope she'll be back on her feet in no time...
Thanks Rudy. She is already back on her feet. The Doctor said that typically patients with this operation can go back to work after 2 weeks if they have an office job, 6 weeks for a manual labor job. Now I just need to motivate her to get back in shape like you did with your Dad.
@jrm927 and I got out a little this afternoon, ran a supposed to be paved route with no real water crossings for cold weather riding. I'm sad to report that we've lost two dirt roads to pavement (tar and gravel) north of Mt Zion Church near Minor Hill TN. That's three dirt roads down that I know of this year. They are just going away sadly. Little Texas Rd and the one that T's off of it to the West are the ones I noticed paved today. Moores Café was still good food stop on the way back.
Bummer. We need to do some rides in Bankhead. There's still plenty of dirt roads there.
We had a nice taste of spring today, sunny and 75. Of course I got out and enjoyed the weather since it's going to turn to crap for the next week or so.
My Like went over 11K this evening.
This was on my way to the river to catch the sunset. I parked at a few different spots on the river.
The gates in Wheeler are now open. As soon as we get some more nice weather I'll be back out there on my KLX.
I’m trying to understand how me and Raptorman both got flats in Wheeler and you ride there more often and don’t seem to get flats. The tire gods are watching over you.
I think you guys just have more magnetic personalities than I do and attract more nails
Nice warming photos. Current wind chill here is -39c. At -40 Fahrenheit and Celsius are the same.
Many years ago (1980s) my wife and I went to Germany. They had the coldest weather of the century while we were there. It was 40 below, that's actual temperature not wind chill. That's when I learned that At -40 Fahrenheit and Celsius are the same.
Many years later I flew into Minneapolis in the winter. The wind chill was 60-90 below When we landed the left brakes on my King Air had frozen and we went skidding down the runway. Amazingly the tire didn't blow but we could count every layer of cord. I remember getting out of the plane to check the tire. It felt like the hairs in my nose instantly froze as I breathed in
So I know what cold is like. No Thanks! I'm happy to be living where I am. Of course it is even warmer in Florida but I'll put up with a little cold to have the great riding we have here.
Klavaitor, hope the wife is recovering well and back to normal soon.
Thanks. She is doing well and should be able to resume her normal activities soon.
At first I was amazed at your being able to snap a picture of the Like's odometer while riding at 50mph. But then I remembered you were a helicopter pilot trained to do all kinds of tasks with both your hands (and your feet) at the same time...
It takes “multi tasking “ to a whole different level
That pic was easy to take. I take pics while at speed all the time. Much more challenging is taking an over the shoulder pic while leaned over at speed. Here's on I took recently. I was probably going around 60 for this one.
The most difficult pics to take are while riding on dirt or gravel. Unfortunately they often come out blurry.
Edit: I have been practicing taking pics with my left hand while riding with my right hand for many years now.
