I had Back Surgery and have not been able to ride my bike and probably wont be able to for another 5 or 6 months....thats right no riding over the summer for me...:(

I have been reading my BMW ON Magazine and reading the Boards and that makes me miss her More...i walk out to the Garage just to look at her and stare and cant believe i can not ride her....

What can i do to forget about her for a few months until I am able to get back on her and put a smile back on my face?

You're in California, it should be almost summer there.

Go out and rent a small convertible for the next 3-4 months, that would fit for a short while ;)

What kind of surgery did you have? I had artificial disc replacement (charite) in Dec 06 on my L-5 S-1. I am back to playing basketball and fourwheeling and feel great. Before the surgery I was in an awful way. Good luck and hope you have a speedy recover. Based on the timeframe you gave I would guess fusion?

If it helps any, I am having surgery in the morning to remove a portion of my colon. No riding for me either. But after I heal, it's go time.

Had hip replacement surgery MAr 31st. Going into my 6th week now and am really depressed.
Only solution for me is to put on helmet and go out to the garage and stroke her(LT) a couple of times, close my eyes and visualize myself through a couple of twisties. Also projecting and planning my summer sojurn of 4 corners.
Not really a cure all but it does help me..
Aloha, R.

Hey big guy, it's yours, you just stroke it all you need to and as often as you want.

Oh come on, you knew THAT was coming :wave

About the convertible...no joking, I just bought a 2004 Audi A4 convertible and it is SO much fun. In some ways, I actually enjoy cruising in it more than on my bike. No gear required...you get LOTS more sun...a better view of the surrounding terrain than through the opening of a full-face helmet. if it rains....just stop, push a button and your dry! Honestly...it's a BLAST!!!!! ;) :D :D

The way California goes, helmet use in convertibles may be required in the future.

If it saves even one life.....
