I had an orthopedic surgeon tell me I was too old to ride, but I forgot when that was exactly.

Lol...
I've had a disc removal, spinal fusion @ L5-S1, had many of those guys telling me "You need to change your lifestyle"...My answer? "Not until it's a complete physical impossibility"
Some days I catch decent air (70ft or so)...Some days I use a cane...lol

GA426, glad your back into living to the fullest!

You are not old until you stop doing the the things that you love...

Surprisingly my surgeon does not have a problem with my racing and riding:thumbsup:. I have a good relationship with him and he helps me with my recovery and staying in reasonable shape.

I too am waiting for some cooler temps here and may ride some practice even though I am probably a few months away from my release. It is just too long away from our sport for my feeble brain.

Bill:banana:
