Started riding again!

After being sidelined for 2 1/2 months from suffering a perforated bowel, and the resulting abdominal surgery to repair it, I am happy to say that this Tuesday will be 7 weeks post surgery, and today I rolled the Dyna Glide out of the garage, cranked it right up and tooled around my hood for a couple hours, stopping along the way to see a few friends. It was glorious, and in another week, I think I will be ready to mount my 950 lb Ultra Limited. One step of the way at a time. Next Saturday is Leesburg rally, and myself and a few friends are riding there and back on Saturday the 27th.

I'm glad to see you are healing well. I'll be parking bikes at Gator HD if you get there.

Good to hear. Go slow to get back into it.
