Back in the saddle

Gorgeous day here in the Adirondacks. Had cardiac bypass surgery 9 weeks ago, and just took my first ride. 2 hours of twisties mixed with faster straight aways. All went great.

So happy to be back on my '14 1000. It is such a great bike. 4th gear is just awesome- 20-80 miles per hour with great acceleration. Finally able to start my riding season. The season here is really from about May until October. Let the riding begin.

I had my bypass almost 3 years ago, in mid July. The height of my riding season. I started riding again after 6 weeks. I knew I was taking a chance, but I really needed a mood boost. I'm not recommending anyone else ride that soon, but I needed it! So, I know exactly how you felt today!
