Well, life sucks for me right now. Just had knee surgery this morning and I will not be able to get on my bike for at least 3 weeks.

Bummin big time. I went out for a ride yesterday and braved the cold just so I could get some ride time in.

Missing my bike already. here's to healing quickly.

P.S. Surgery was not from any kind of accident, tore the cartilage in my right knee at work and just had it fixed.

Bike is still flawless, not a scratch, dent, ding, nada

Thank you one and all for the well wishes. Feeling pretty good right now, but it might

have something to do with the Pain Pump that is attached to my knee and 6 Loratabs

and 2 big Corona's that I used to wash em down with. Or maybe it's just me. lol

But I feel good. Only time will tell. I have a great doctor, he used to be the Orthopedic

surgeon for the Oakland Raider's before moving here.

Counting down the day's till I can ride again. I want to trip out my doc by riding to

my 2 week check up on my bike and see if he wants to try his Porche against my bike.

But I think he is smart enough not to try. lol

Anyway, Thanks again everyone. ZX10R.NET rules



Here's to riding my recliner

Healing on the way!

Healing Prayer

I ask the great unseen healing force
to remove all obstructions
from my mind and body
and to restore me to perfect health.
I ask this in all sincerity and honesty,
and I will do my part.
I ask this great unseen healing force
to help both present and absent ones
who are in need of help
and to restore them to perfect health.
I put my trust in the love and power of God.

Well, I have to say that my employer (Northrop Grumman) is taking very good care of me.

They have paid for everything, got me a great doctor, give me all the meds I could ever

need for pain. And scheduled 20 sessions of physical therapy at the very best P/T clinic.

And on top of all that, they are promoting me to a foreman when I return to work, which

means better pay, & vacation, sick pay and benefits.

Also, I get to sit here on my duff and get paid for it while I'm healing to boot.

Just makes that first ride that much sweeter. Gotta take care of the knees. All joints for that matter. Don't rush it.

WOW,
I had to go see my surgeon today so he could remove the pain pump out of my

knee. He showed me the pics of my knee joint during the surgery.

I had 4 freakin tears on the cartilage. 1 of the tears was just over 2 inches in length.

Loratabs & Percocets RULE Pain ??? What Pain !!!! lol

No wonder it was hurting so much. Still dying to get back on my bike thou.
