Talking I'm BACK IN the saddle again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi all,
A lot has gone on health wise for me since 8/22/2012. Thusly I missed out on better than 3000 miles of riding.

TODAY, I got back on the LT and road about 100 miles. You biker guys KNOW how it felt. Most of my non-biker friends just think I'm nuts. LOL

I still have some bruises from the Pacemaker insertion, but I feel fine and my left arm works fine getting the LT off of it's side stand.

NOW I can return to daily riding as long as the road surfaces are OK.

Thanks to all that said a Prayer and were concerned.
Vern

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.

Been riding with a pacemaker for over 6 years. I look at it as a set of jumper cables that are always connected. Welcome back and ride safely.

Thumbs up Re: I'm BACK IN the saddle again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks fellows,
This morning I did another 192 miles down to Engles BMW this morning and back home.

They've rearranged there show room again. Looked like more bikes to choose from amd more gear.

I didn't find anyone happy with the election results. I wonder why???

Nice sunny day here..............later, Vern.
