Ah...yes. Thank you. All of the food names kind of run together for me. Yogurt has been part of my daily routine since I've recovered. I hope it will help. I let you off easy, Mitch. I could have also composed a literary tour de force describing the sounds and smells too! Possibly. They would have to withstand compression, as that's what got me. The boots I have have good padding at the ankle, but there was a lot of weight that landed on it. "Delhi belly" Why didn't you rent a bike and come join me? It's not that far. Thank you for the support. I'll be looking into some new protection options when I get to Antigua. I have the means to equip myself better, but spending money is hard for me. I should upgrade my gear while I still have the bare knee to remind me. Thank you for sharing these thoughts. I kind of felt like getting back to normal life, which at this strange stage of my life is to keep on riding. I did a couple long days in a row and it didn't feel too bad. I appreciate the encouragement! Thank you, but we frown on seriousness around here. There's a "Russian Judge" in every crowd, huh? The 500X looks great. It came out just after I bought Annie, otherwise I might have considered it. I was so happy when Honda announced that 500cc line. I'm kind of a small bike guy (top case withstanding) and it feels like American market bikes are getting so big. Thanks for the cipro tip and the well wishes.
