I'm all back now. I can pick up my 70 lbs 6 year old just like before. Still some pain when I sleep on my left side and my left clavicle portrudes a bit more than my right. Depending on how things proceed, I may opt for the surgery to remove the titanium plate.
On another note, the Mustang seat on the Sportster is awesome. Taking tomorrow off and head in some direction all day. It may be a primitive machine compared to others but it does look great!
glad to hear that...scary to think how the healing could otherwise have gone..as we age, we never really seem to heal the way we want to, nevermind it taking forever. And no brainer on the mustang...great seat...first thing i did when i replaced my bike last year...one days worth of riding on the stock seat the previous owner had on it reminded me why I've had nothing but mustang seats on my previous 2 rides. Then again maybe not such a good thing...one can wander aimlessly for 10-12 hours and other than for the occasional gas stop (nature call), never need too get off the ride.
