Back on a bike!
« on: December 28, 2016, 08:04:45 PM »
As a lot of you know, 2 1/2 years ago, I was involved in a very serious motorcycle accident which took me out of riding! After numerous ops, and a new hip, and extensive rehab, I was finally fit enough to attempt a ride! And at my wife's family farm in the Natal Midlands, I was finally able to do my first off-road ride! It was nerve wracking to say the least, but great fun!

Welcome back. Mind games when returning after any accident. Confidence takes a serious knock. Go slow until previous comfort zone is achieved. Safe riding

Hi Doc,
Delighted to see you back on 2 wheels! Take it slowly..

Home is where your bike sits still long enough to leave a few drops of oil on the ground.

Well the bikes just keep on getting larger.....you know how it is? And despite using my bike to commute daily, I'm obviously not getting enough, as I've now joined Scorp as a Think Bike Marshall. LOL
