Haven't updated this in awhile! Earlier this month I had ordered the ECU flash and auto blip licenses along with the rearsets. Went up for a couple hours one afternoon to tinker on the bike and start putting the rearsets on - got most of the way done until I realized I needed to use the OEM shift rod instead of the one that came with the rearsets - so the guys were going to have to finish that up lol. I ordered up the Graves exhaust that day as well, which should have come in by now I'd think.
Getting my HSA checks now, so recouping some of the medical bill money I've spent and going on a shopping spree later this week to pick up the rest of the stuff for the bike - shopping is always fun when you've got money to spend
shopping for bike stuff is extra fun.
Other than that, just trying to do my best to heal up - 2 plates and 18 screws later humpty dumpty is back together. Still 100% NWB, but able to do ROM exercises on the ankle, so I do those a minimum of twice a day, and most days also go down and hop on the street bike (while it's off and on the side stand) and practice shifting up and down. Was able to get my foot into my commute boots (which are technically a size too big) fairly comfortably, which actually made shifting a lot easier. Won't know much else until my follow up and re-xray next week - hoping everything I've been doing will pay off, but keep reading about all the horror stories with these injuries which has me a bit apprehensive! Swelling is pretty well managed even on days when I can't elevate as much as I do when I'm telecommuting, but if the day gets too long the pain gets far more annoying - not horrible, but enough to keep me from falling asleep for long...which is probably a bit fresh since yesterday ended up being a 10 hour day for the leg, and I basically got about 1-2 hours of sleep last night.
But that's the exception, and it's actually feeling pretty good by now after a night of rest and good elevation all morning!
Tinkering on the bike
I may need to start safty-wiring myself - think this'll pass tech?
