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 .
