Glad to be back!

After a setback with my blown knee I am proud to say I am back on the bike. I went from 315 pounds to 285 pounds, then hurt my knee and was off it for a couple months and now I am up to 315 again...but not for long!

I managed to mangle my DA22 rear wheel and am in need of advice on my LBS opinion...I will post that up in a seperate thread. I just wanted to say thanks to Beanz, the Historian, Stormecrow and the gang as I have got some good laughs while I was down....Thanks, James

From other posts (including mine - broken ribs), I think there are several out there who understand the "down time" that results from broken bones, blown knees, pneumonia and sometimes just life stuff.

The herd has missed you. Welcome back.
