Spinal implant that is.
Going in July 2nd. This will be the second one in about 5 years. They have to do the one below the previously fused ones. Possibly going to do the one above as well. Not sure yet.
There goes this summer's trips on the scooter but it looks like my fishing time just increased. My daughter will like that.

Good luck man. Hope everything goes smoothly, and your recovery is a fast one. :thumbsup

No riding does suck, but on the bright side, fishing time increased, so I can't see anything wrong with that. LOL

Wishing you a fast recovery! We don't want you having to ride a Can-Am.

Thanks for the well wishes!
No Can-am but I do see a windshield/fairing in my future.
In 40 years of riding (29 on the street) I have never owned a bike with one.
May be time for a RoadGlide?
I'd add a windshield to my Softail but I can't find one I like the looks of. Form may have to take a back seat to function.

Daddy, we're all thinking about you and pulling for you. Sucky chapter in your book, but I'm sure it has a happy ending. Road Glide would be kick ass. Do what you're told so you get better fast.

You have my prayers, brother.

Do me a favor and never call him "Daddy" again.

Hahahaha...... I went through this in 08 and it all went well. They told me then that I'd be looking at another one in about 5 years. Guess they were right.
Not being able to drive for 3 weeks sucked then and will again but the end result will be worth it. I work above my head about 50% of the time and bent into an engine compartment or twisted around up under a dash the rest of the time it seems.

I got instant relief in 08 and I hope the same thing happens this time.
Recovery time should be about 12-15 weeks and I have short term disability insurance as well as long term if needed.
