It borders on impossible to put on a pair of button front jeans with one hand.
One must wear a baggie on broken body part to take shower.
Any body part in a cast ITCHES!
Meat can not be cut with one hand.
Forget it's broke and you will try to pick something up and say cuss words cause it hurts.

Little words of wisdom I have recently learned.
Not to mention, that if you are a lefty , wiping can be a challenge., Slip -ons take on a whole new appeal , vs laces. Its also almost impossible to carry ANYTHING while using crutches.
Time to be thankful its only temporary!!!

$9297.25 check in my hand and I no longer own a Kawasaki Vulcan Classic LT 2000 cc motorcycle.

As soon as the surgery is complete on my hand I will start the hunt for a new Beast to put my rump on. Anyone got any good leads on something for sale?

I really haven't decided yet what kind of bike to go with. I've got plenty of time to think and look. Surgery tomorrow to fix hand and two months minimum to heal. Need to look at what will carry my big behind.

That more than I paid for my V2K classic new. Orta be able to find a suitable replacement for the beast with that. Good luck.
