I just had rotator cuff surgery so I will be an observer this season, stuck reading trail reports, snow depths and adventures while Jonesing at home all winter. Sucks.

Tough time of year for that. What's the recovery time on that operation?

Sorry to hear. I tore my cuff a while back, 15 years or so, motorcycle accident. I hate myself some days for not getting it knifed, sleep is miserable some nights. Snowmobiling ir rough conditions is brutal on the shoulders. I guess I don't have the guts to sit out the recovery. Get better, I may be reaching out to get some feedback.

Wife missed all of last year when she slipped 9 days before XMas and broke her wrist. Doc just told her she is not riding this year either. Sucks for me too!!!

Daytripper hang in there. Heal up. Maybe we can rig a set up for you to pilot you around?

I need revision surgery on my neck, but I'm putting it off as long as possible. I'm in a lot of pain, but not willing to go through another major surgery right now.

I miss a days ride here and there, you could always come and hang out. I read, paint, and make an elaborate dinner on those days.

Sorry to hear Mike - good luck on your recovery. Know of many guys who have had it done. I know that this time next year, you'll be planning your B-2-B ride with a couple of your riding friends.
