Frustrated

There is nothing so frustrating as having a NEW motorcycle in the garage and NOT being able to ride it. I know, I know, I've got to wait for my hand to heal a bit more and then I can ride but that still doesn't make me any happier.

Well,you could have died or become paralyzed or have no $$$$ to buy a new bike and then it wouldn't be an issue.
Count your blessings. You are very lucky !

I picked my new VV up late on a Thursday and only got to put a couple dozen miles on it before it started raining on Saturday and kept at it until the middle of the next week.

I was itching pretty bad after only a couple of days. I can only imagine the withdrawals of being off for two months.

When does the doc release you to ride again?

My thoughts exactly. You'll be healed before you know it.
