Hey Monty...thanks for asking. I'm doing better and will no doubt be ready to ride by turkey day. Shoulder is still a bit sore and I've already been admonished by my wife for a tentative 'round the block ride the other day. I did purchase some padded shorts, knee and elbo protection and am going to go for the techvest as well. I should also probably cut down on the soda as the carbonation weakens the bones (so I've been told). I am looking forward to getting back out there with you guys.

As a side note I believe that I was having suspension problems prior to my two crashes. I took the shock in for service and there was only about 70lbs of pressure on it. The book says 140 is stock. The bike is back together and the suspension feels much better.

Thanks for the invite. I don't think my wife would turn me loose in Vegas for a weekend, but sure sounds like fun. I'll get back to you on Thanksgiving.

good luck healing!! a positive attitude is a neccesity! quick note.. I need caffine, and normally would just grab a soda. I was very worried about bone growth after breaking my wrist, and having the dr. who "fixed" me say "the bone may die from lack of blood, because the screw was too big, and did not allow the bone to recive blood" "we may have to shorten your arm 1/2 an inch...remove good bones..." I stopped listening, and asked Do you like your arms the lenght that they are? he got the point.
Had to VENT! anyway... my point
soda does not affect calcium or bone.. but it does if you totaly replace your calcium(milk) with it. pop some calcium with your pepsi (and crown royal) have fun!!!

Hey Monty,
There is a big crew from SF that is going to be at Stony for the T-day and beyond.
Perhaps we could hook up?
Where do you plan on camping?

Here's one of many sites that discuss the relationship between soda intake and calcium levels:

Also, I've heard that calcium citrate is the best supplement since it's 80% absorbed by the body, whereas calcium carbonate must first get processed by the stomach's hydrochloric acid, and averages about 20% absorbtion.
