Mid-50s in SW Ohio today. I haven't ridden my bike since rotator-cuff surgery in late October. I couldn't resist it. After work I pulled off the cover. Inflated the tires. Took off the trickle charge. Cranked it a few times. Then a few more. Then wham. Took it out for 20 miles, including a few at 70 mph just to get the oil nice and hot. It felt great. The bike. The shoulder will feel better in another month or so! Still, it'll be a little warmer tomorrow. So... commuting to work on 2 wheels! I'm calling it physical therapy. :smiley_th

I know how you feel. I had open heart surgery last September and every time I passed through my garage I would look longingly at my bike and pat her saddle. Just give yourself time to get up to full strength again. I didn't get on her again until I was totally pain free and I knew I could lift her up in case the need arose. Can't think of a worse situation than standing helpless over a down bike. Be careful.

That's great you got out for a ride. It's great your felling better too! Maybe you might feel like swinging over for the poker run in the hills this spring. Come for the day! You're close enough. :)

Spring Poker Run - Hocking Hills

That's great you got out for a ride. It's great your felling better too! Maybe you might feel like swinging over for the poker run in the hills this spring. Come for the day! You're close enough. :)
If my memory serves me, the Poker Run is Saturday, May 19. That actually might work for me... I don't have to preach that next day! :smiley_th I might be able to come out Friday and return home in the evening on Saturday.

I'm calling it MENTAL therapy. :smiley_th
I fixed it for you:smiley_th I'm glad you were able to enjoy a ride again.
I've been riding mine all winter so far, just have to pick the right days. It was weird riding to work this morning, 48° felt like I didn't even need the leather.
