Smile I'm Free !!!!!

Hi all, Got the screw out of my ankle/leg yesterday and can now hobble around without crutches or air boot, yeah!!!. Still won't be able to ride for a week or two, need to learn to walk again, grin. I will be driving to CCR, so will see you all there. And will be back on my bike for Ft. Bragg ride and possibly Beemer Bash.

Re: I'm Free !!!!!

Welcome back to the land of 2-legged creatures Bob. I've been there, and know how good it feels to be able to walk again.

Thanks Dino, ended getting the bike shipped to Edmonton AB, then drove up with my wife and trailer and picked it up. No hassles at the border and an added bonus was wife finally understands when I talk about the ride, not the destination. She took along her knitting and book to read, and she was so entralled with the scenery that she never picked them up.

Excellent news.

Good for you Bob. Do EVERYTHING the PT tells you to. You'll be much happier in the long run...

Re: I'm Free !!!!!

Awesome new, Bob! +1 what Ted says about PT, do EVERY LITTLE THING they tell you to, and then some.

I am a little sad, though. I won't get to see you ride the little electric basket cart around Lowes any more.

See you at CCR in a few days!

Re: I'm Free !!!!!

Such good news, Bob. I am getting to a phase where I can not ride much because of the cancer and it is driving me crazy. Seeing the bikes just waiting for me is hard so I can imagine what it must be like for you.

I still manage a weekly ride to A&S on the scooter and Doug tells me I need to come to more posse dinners. Hopefully I will see you once you are able to ride again.

Looking forward to seeing you.
