Damn, that feels good!

Back on the Wee after three weeks in the cage. This feels sooo good even if it is super-slab commuting. The MazdaSpeed 3 is fun but . . . still too many wheels.

Was going to have back surgery the 3rd, literally scrambled the 2nd to get my rim with newly installed tire at least back on the bike.........which I did, but nothing adjusted or tightened down. Doc said no driving or riding til after the staples came out. Couldn't spend enough time bent over to get it done til after getting done with the doc for that yesterday. Wss out in the garage til 8pm last night nailing it down. This morning, first ride..............got something like the flu, been in bed all day :cryin:

Tomorrow, that's my day. Upside was, at least I did get my first drive in my Charger. I am not a passenger by nature, and while my wife's a good driver, and the kids are even better, none of them will drive my car like I do. Classic rock up to 28 out of 32 for volume, the occasional freeing of all 425 ponies, maybe half as good for the soul as a ride on my bike, and that's still pretty damn good.

Good to hear the surgery went well . . . I hate riding as a passenger too.

My arms have been bothering me so I cut out riding for a few weeks to see if that was causing it. I'm craving a ride!!

I don't ride bitch, and I'm not a good passenger. My wife is a good back seat driver, but won't drive me anywhere. She could make 100 straight lines out of any curve! And I pay for the brakes and tires


Glad your surgery went well.

Oh, yeah, had a Shelby Charger back in the mid eighties, and later on owned a Charger GLHS, number 837 of course, then a Stage 3 SRT-4 Neon, now an SRT-8 Charger. And on a happy note, pushed the bike out yesterday afternoon, and after reseating the rear brake, did squeeze in a 20 minute ride. What a balm for the soul.
