I'm back!

Well since no one probably knows this, I broke my collarbone nearly 5 weeks ago, VERY badly. I haven't been able to do anything but ride once a week, and then suck down about 5 Vicadins afterwards. Anyways, I had to test ride a bike at work tonight and out of habit I wheelie dropped off our little test track (um, testing the rear suspension...) and realized...

I WAS ABLE TO PULL THE BARS UP WITHOUT SCREAMING IN AGONY!!!

This means I can ride my mountain bike again!!! I can bunnyhop again!!! Sorry but just had to share my excitement. Of course though it was 80 and sunny for the past 5 weeks, and its about 38 outside now and raining

Welcome back, man! But DO take it kinda easy. I broke my left clavicle pretty darn good a few years back and it took me a solid 3 months to where I felt comfortable again.

It feels good to be back, does it not?!
