back home after being guest of honour at the drillers and knifers society now for my marathon to get myself ride fit again which is going to take a few visits to physio terrorist but hopefully I should be right just as the weather warms up.

Thanks guys I keep telling myself it had to be done but it doesn't make it any easier. Just have to trust the old adage of time heals all wounds only problem is a hospital has more patients than I have.

I know what you mean, Paul.. Doc retired me from work in June 2009, and booked me in at the hospital for right knee replacement, said that it would have to be done within 3 years.... I am still waiting... and the knee getting worse after 7 years on the waiting list.
Today is one of those bad days, where I am hobbling around with my walking stick, haven't been outside the door today.

Now, if I was a celebrity, or a football player, or such.... "Oh. Saturday afternoon ok?.. have you back on your feet by Monday..."

Yer, sure...

Well just got back from my third follow up and I can throw the brace in the bin proves there is a god. Go back late Sept and hopefully get the all clear to ride again. I should get the usb on it's way back to tomorrow as I also have to post the BS form back to the Gumbiment.

With recent events, I'm sure that in "Life's Contract", there's a little clause on the last page that says "Shit will happen"    It's how we deal with it that is important and you seem to be doing OK.   :thumbs

Well the heavy lifting has started with the physio terrorism. Starting to walk better even getting back to sitting on the beaST which is a great feeling but boy does the seat feel wider than I remember it.Hopefully some helmet time is coming in the near future. :dred11 :dred11 :dred11

A couple of short rides yesterday and today the knee isn't quite up to supporting the weight of the beast yet but it'll get there in time with the physio. :dred11 :dred11 :dred11

Took the beaST for a 200 hundred klm round trip to Stuarts Well this morning just to let her know I have'nt disowned her yet the knee went well no uncomfortable pain afterwards and supported the weight of the bike without too much trouble. I'm happy now and the next run will be to Erldunda and back probably next weekend. :dred11 :dred11 :dred11 :dred11
