Default 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.

Listen to you folks down south complaining about not riding for a day

It's been down in the 20's, snowing, and the roads are covered in salt. Ugh! I feel ya. Can't wait to get out on her again.
