Thought I'd check in.

Hey, it's been a little while. I had a major surgery where they removed and rebuilt a good chunk of my intestines on March 19. There were some complications and the couple week recovery still had me recovering. So, since I'm missing the first part of riding season I was hoping some of the guys here could post pictures from the road, so that I can live vicariously through you.

Get better buddy. Noticed you seemed MIP (missing in posts) . On a charity ride right now, try to get some pics or a short video uploaded for you.
You worry about getting better.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

sorry to read of the major surgery but sounds like the human body this time needed some rebuilding instead of the mc...hope the healing goes well and you
are able to get out riding again soon. Take care.

Sorry to hear about your surgery.

Praying for a successful and quick recovery for you.

My brother has to have reoccurring stomach surgeries due to his Vietnam injuries and I can tell they're no fun at all.

Thanks all. The worst part is my neighbor just got a new Indian Chiefton and keeps telling me "if you want to take it for a spin just let me know." Stupid, stupid timing lol. Oh well, soon I hope.

Oh and duglaura, congrats on the anniversary. Thats fifteen years longer than I've ever made it.

Thought I'd check in.

Taking a quick nap after lunch on a Memorial Day ride.

Hope you feel better soon!
