Screw the Post Surgery Restriction - iRide

Got the 2011 XTC 1 on Feb 17th. Had abdominal surgery on Feb. 18th (4" slice between the belly button and the sternum). Doc said no bike till St. Patty's day:bluefrown:

Today it was 70 degrees with perfect blue sky. The weather has been pure crap for three months. I stepped into the garage and it was too much. I looked at that beautiful black sexy new bike and said "Screw the Rules!" iRide :thumbsup:

The quintessential white garage door picture.

Just a ride around town, but WOW is this bike great....See the Smile
