    Angry Laid up for the rest of the riding season...


    Last Friday morning I had an operation on my left foot which has possibly put a premature halt to my riding season.

    The procedure was to shorten the bone just behind the big toe which creates a very painful thing called a Metatarsal Phalangial Enlargement... a Bunion...
    What actually takes place is that bone is "Vee'd" out and put back to the proper length and pinned.

    I have to be off the foot for a solid week, iced and elevated. Then we move on to the first post-op check and I will be advised how I can proceed and when I can start load baring that foot. Crutches for now, that sucks...
    I'll be out of work for six + weeks...

    So, when I can get back on both feet I envision having a tender lefty to deal with, probably do not want to try and hold a motorcycle up let alone shift it... ! !

    Enter the Hack...

    As soon as I am cleared by the Doc to use a heel & toe shifter, I'll finish out the year on the Hack... Really kinda cool as I obviously will not need to put a foot down and I will be able to be on the Guzzi...

    Bundle up, Winter's comin'...

    Speakng of that, I don't see skiing this year either...

    Dude quit being a pussy and get out there. KB broke his foot a week before going to the Gap and he was cranking with a cast on his foot and everything. That bitch was even still faster than me. Grow a pair and keep riding.

    JK Man, hope you heal up.

    That wouldn't be 'cause he's better than you to begin with, would it...?

    I feel your pain, bro... but just be glad it's towards the end of the season instead of the beginning. I was outta comission for about 3-4 months from April - July/August. Talk about frustration!

    At least ya got that sweet MG & sidecar to tool around on, that looks like a pretty sweet rig

    Heal up quick.

    Yeah, I planned for this time of year... Last of the riding, m-a-y-b-e get to ski... we'll see.

    That much down time must have really killed you... Man...

    I've been off the two wheels for a week and I'm watching Dust to Glory and Long Way Round and On Any Sunday already... ! !

    The Hack is a riot, good beer truck too...

    Thanks,
    Rob

    I did not Doc, I'm not a WERA member and don't feel I want to drop in and post an ad if I do not intend to stay around... ya' know what I mean...?
    If you want to cross post it or link the craigslist ad I would not stop you however, again I hate to hit and run.

    Thanks dude,
    Rob
