If I ever need the same procedure I'll see if the doctor can use the CO2 in my beer to aid him in surgery......
Seriously, good to hear you're on the road to recovery. When are you going back to Kennedy Meadows? I'm dying to ride there.

But I was riding, exercising some restraint, in four or five weeks and felt no affects whatsoever after two months.
But you will always know it is there…
BTW do you know how you did it? I traced mine to a fifth gear wheelie-cum-loopout on my 500…

Good to hear you're on your way to recovery. That sounds like a wild porting job, inflated with CO2 !!!
Hope you are feeling well soon, 6-10 weeks and you'll be ready for summer riding.
