TIME FLIES, I GUESS.....
« on: October 01, 2018, 02:47:30 PM »
 :shrug: 

Well, I've been reading old posts all morning......a lot of them accumulated in the 2 months since I've checked in!   I kind of decided to take a little time off after my surgery to pursue my passion for riding motorcycles.  A cancer scare can change your outlook on life, remaining time on earth, interests, age-related 'saddle time,'  etc.

Thanks to all of you who sent the PMs that I was not able to read until this morning when I logged on to the forum.....which took some time in trying to remember my password.:P.  My surgeon told me I would be spending at least one night in the hospital if the growth entwining my appendix was benign, or several more if it turned out to be malignant.  I would have to quit riding motorcycles for a minimum of 5-6 weeks in that worst case scenario.  As it turned out, there were ZERO cancer cells present and the surgery went so well that he sent me home without even having to overnight in the hospital......unbel ievable!  I only had to wait the two weeks for the post-op follow up visit and consultation with the surgeon before beginning to ride again.  I have been taking advantage of that opportunity with a vengeance!  I've logged around 13,000 miles on the Vulcan riding solo and over 5,000 with Heather riding the new H-D TriGlide Ultra.  It goes into Rooster's H-D in Sioux City on Wednesday for the 'free' :lol: 5000 mile service. 

More posts forthcoming, but that's enough for now.

It's good to be back.......I'm a happy man! :banana:

I'm so glad you're back and everything is looking good.  We've missed you.  Tony

I haven't had time to take any and it's covered with smashed bugs right now, so in the interim this will give you a pretty good idea of what it looks like.....

Glad you're back my friend and I can stop biting my tongue about where you were.  I did not want to bother you during the hiatus and that is why I did not call you again.   :thumbsup:

  Good news old friend,  You and Heather must be relieved.
