Just had a knee arthroscope done yesterday.

No riding for the next 2 weeks and then off to Bali for 10 days.

Will my GTV forgive for ignoring her for so long?

is this your way of telling everyone you're off to Bali for 10 days, without pissing everyone off

As long as you don't cheat on her with another scooter in Bali, I think you'll be fine.

I had a place with a Honda when i spent a month in Bali. Stayed in Ubud but even when i went to the coast for a few days the place had a PTW for me to ride . If you can ride then get one and take the trails to find out what's at the end. Met some cool people in some far out villages. Have fun. Everything is CHEAP. Jealous.

Judy, I keep thinking of starting a thread "Places Judy hasn't been" only it would be so short, no one would notice.

True.

Back in '09 I ruptured my Quadriceps tendon. This happened in June, ruining my touring plans for the year, let along all the other riding, too. I was back on the scoot later than summer with my leg held straight in a brace with just enough room to rest my heel comically far forward on the floorboards. Razz emoticon

Nowadays, it's just something I chuckle about.

I had a total hip replacement just over a month ago. (My OEM hip had been failing for years and the doctors told me a replacement was imminent, so the only surprise was the when.)

I'm ordered to stay off riding until March.

I learned a little patience recovering from the first surgery. I can wait it out. Luckily, it happened over the winter, too.

Take your time, let it heal.
You'll be back in the saddle before you know it. 8)
Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Tore my meniscus in my right leg on a lower Annapurna trek. 1 day out from the finish. Never knew i had it dune. In fact my left knee was worse than the right. Got a new left knee. So like Lynda said, it will be a faint memory overtime. Can hardly see the scar anymore either. 8)

Been back at work after holidays now for 2 weeks. Back riding the GTV everyday.

The knee is feeling great and I'm back at the gym to get strength back after the injury.

Thanks all for the kind thoughts.
