    Well iv done it fellas ,

    After major spinal surgery , a shit load of screws ,rods and 12 weeks of ridiculous pain , iv swung my leg over the Blade and took her for spin .

    Surprisingly I can sit on the bike totally fine , I can't tuck down behind the screen as low as I could before but enough to get out if the turbulence .

    A wheels of the lights was a mistake as I slammed down a bit to hard but general riding , I'm there .

    I had forgot how insanely fast my bike is ( YoshiR77 decat + PCV5 + pipercross air filter = BIG SMILES !! )

    Only down side was its bloody freezing !!

    So as happy as I am to have managed a little blast on my pride and joy I have a problem with my kit now .
    Because of my previously curved spine I had a pretty big lump on my back , well my 6 year old , totally filthy but much loved Alpinestars leather jacket had stretched to my old body shape . It does not fit me at all now . I'm gutted as me and that jacket have done some serious mileage !! Lol , gutted gutted gutted .

    I think you of all people deserve to treat yourself to some new armour, mate. It's nearly Christmas after all.

    Nice 1 Dan

    A long wait but at least you know you can get back on the bike, and you have all winter to get yourself into some kind of shape for the new season.

    Can't wait to hear about your first proper ride out ;)

    Well done Dan, I bet you've missed the blade.
    Always good to rekindle a love affair.

    We moan when we Put the bikes away for winter, but what you have had to endure this year ain't worth thinking about for most!

    Just don't over do it, plenty of Tarmac to attack next year when your 100% fit mate

    Really chuffed now you are back in the saddle.Pity its the wrong side of the year or we could have had another Trip to Nuggetville to see you. big frost up here today so i will see later if it clears (although i doubt it) I understand what you mean about a hump on your back ,i recently went to the doctors to complain about a similar condition however i discussed the situation and was releived when he pointed out that it was only the speed hump built into the leathers so happy days for me as well.

    Nice one Dan.
    That is nothing short of incredible.
    I bet you were a bit nervous at first?
    I currently have no bike in the garage and am itching to get out. Sunny this morning but bitterly cold.
