    No, the surgery is not all that far away! If I knew anyone around here who rides and willing to take passengers, I just might ask to ride pillion! Alas, the other Covid interruption - haven't been able to get out TO meet anyone. Ah, well. The shoulder thing will end. I am still holding out hope that I will be able to ride this coming fall. LOL, wouldn't want to ride right now anyway - it's friggin' snowing!!

    I had a knee replacement last year, but I've heard shoulders are a tougher recovery. Good luck, do what your therapist says, and have an honest conversation with him/her about what exercises you can push harder on and which you can't. Some exercises will knock you back if you overdo them.

    I'd be happy to take you for a ride, and my wife and I would be happy to have dinner or a weekend lunch. It's tough meeting new people when you move, add COVID and it has to suck.

    Silver Girl,

    I'm in Longmont, and often ride CO 14 (and others)! Many times I've wished for a camera operator, the LT is reasonably comfortable for a passenger (according to my wife).

    Send me a P.M.

    P.S. Both my wife and I are "fully vaxed".

    Almost ready to ride...

    To those of you who replied to my original posts I apologize that I sorta disappeared. It's been tough going for me since the reverse total shoulder replacement surgery last May. Real slow going with the PT which has been a major factor in my getting rather down about a lot of things over the course of this past year. By last September I was not ready to get back on my toy. A huge bummer. But... I have been doing the PT every darn day since last May. Am working with a second therapist at this point. Recently, I got my bike into the shop for a check-up on it's general health and to get maintenance done. I've also sent my Wilbers shocks to get their long overdue maintenance done and have sent both my Aerostich and Motoport gear off to get repairs/mods taken care of. These are all because I fully expect to get back to riding for some of this season - early season and then later season with a break in the middle. I am optimistic this time of finally getting back to riding!

    Because I've now been out of riding for 2.5 seasons I am planning to actually do MSF BRC training as a first step to getting back to the riding that I love so much. I've narrowed the locations down to three training providers: Ricky Orlando Motorcycle School at the IMI Motorsports Sports Complex in Dacono, Motorcycle Rider Training Center in Lakewood, and Clutch Motorcycle School in Loveland. I'd love to hear about experiences with any of these places that folks may have had. I am sort of leaning towards training with Ricky Orlando due to their being at a track setting and appears to have a lot of space to use.

    Thanks in advance!

    Louise
