Avintage has an eagle eye, he analyzes the whole situation and notices things most of us don’t see, I bet his job has made him that aware.

Rocky hopefully you will get the bike today, do you feel like your ready to ride now, most of your soreness gone hopefully, that was a hell of a procedure you had, anytime they crack you open that is some serious bone mending going on.

I bought one of those new vinyl and pvc screen doors that’s suppose to last. The directions said you could trim it with regular wood working tools. I fired up the skill saw and ripped 1” off the bottom. The dust off cutting that likes to of killed me. It was a fine powder that stuck to everything. I coughed so much I thought I was going to puke. I was wheezing all night every time I breathed. That dam door should of had a warning to wear a freaking respirator while cutting.

Dam Markie, you should have worn a surgical mask.

I'm still really sore but I think I'm going to be for six more months. I'm sort of apprehensive to ride but I have to ride sometime. I'll jsut have to sit as upright as possible so no jarring goes directly into tmy chest. If it really hurts I'll turn around and bring it back to the shop and put it on a trailer. Two other guys from the KTM forum had something similar done and one rode about 2 and 1/2 months from surgery and the other a few months so it's not abonomral for me to be riding now. The doc said I'm younger and more muscular than most that get this so it will take longer for me to heal and not to compare my progress next to someone elses. Oddly, older guys heal faster as their cartilage is more soft and pliable. Also no muscle tugging on thier sternums while healing. I was told I was a bit of a bitch to open up as well. I don't want dudes inside me

Rock, I broke a bunch of ribs when I was a young and strong 16 yr old. It was at least six months before I could lay in a bed. I learned to love late night cable tv and anything from the opiod family. I think your "injury" is worse. The fact you are doing this well is amazing.

I hope todays ride goes well, but so what if you need another month or three...

the ride wnet well despite the 40 mph winds. Of course that had to happen the day I pick up my bike, but the ninja stood its ground. It was a fun ride. Nervous at first.

RC, ribs are weird. Though not as severe as a cracked open sternum they don't heal easily becuase there's nothing holding them together. THis ride did hurt a bit but it was bearable as well. I think I'll ride some more tomorrow.

The first official beer run of 2019 did occur though

Glad the ride went well. You're right about the ribs. According to my doc (and x-rays) the body just kind of puts a blob of stiff cartilage around where the ends meet and calls it good. A 2011 Ninja broke my ribs but it resulted in a 2014 Ninja so that was nice compensation for 6 weeks of no riding. I actually picked up the '14 while still in a lot of pain and under orders NOT to ride. Hey, $10k OTD for a brand new '14 w/ bags. My wife still thinks it was the drugs that messed with my decision making processes. Me and a buddy trailered it home and I got to stare at it in my garage for another 3 weeks before ever putting a mile on it. Looks like you're back in the saddle even if it means being careful. Congrats.
