Back in the saddle again!

After busting my hip 6 months ago (on my Tarmac) , at 0 speed I might add, and having a titanium implant at the price of which I could have purchased another nice Lexus....But that's another story.....I finally got to do my first ride ! 56miles ! But I did cheat, I took the Gold Rush!

Glad you back riding, nice bike. I have a Long Easy clone, that was great when the back prevented my use of an upright. 56 miles is a good first ride!
