Just checking in and saying hello mates. I’m still alive and the VF1000R still looking as good as it did when I first painted it 10 years ago now.
Just went through major back surgery 3 months ago. Was cut open about 12 inches and my bottom spine was rebuilt up to 4 levels from the bottom. Lot of parts went in to rebuild it.
Surgeon says I can’t ride for at least a year and the sport bike could be questionable once the year is up because of the way you sit on them.
Still struggling and really wanting to get back to riding my bikes. 28 years ago I had my 1st back surgery due to a motorcycle crash and the Doctors told me then I would not be able to ride again. Again I find myself wanting to prove the Doctors wrong, however this time around not sure I can prove them wrong.
Nevertheless, you can’t keep a good man down and I’m pushing hard to accelerate my recovery. It’s painful but it would be more painful not to be able to ride my VF1000R again.
So I’m looking to get back on her in March which will be the 7 month mark. Wish me luck and I’m hope all is well with you’all. I’ll try to stop in more often now that I’m officially retired.
Best wishes ED
