Most of you know about my work mishap just over 6 weeks ago so I wont bore you with that I Did a minor 300k ride two weeks ago with some of the boys/girls from over at the OzFirstorm site, where I sort of behaved :wink: The day after was I getting some minor pain and a little swelling of the elbow again, but didn't worry me much at all........ But it should off ! I can bend my arm ok, but just have NO power in my hand to even squeeze Nadeens boobs let alone a brake lever or hold a spanner for work. I let it go with some good old panadole and sambucca , but it just kept getting worse so I had to revisit the quack, followed by more xrays and ultrasounds. Now I find I'm waiting for some surgery to repair the ligaments and 'other' damage. The prognosis is for only 60% use at best, maybe less ? With a projected 8 to 12 months after the surgery, before I can even expect to even try to jump in the saddle again. I find I'm now having an internal debate with myself. Too A: Soldier on keep the bike and hope for the best after surg. B: Bite the bullet sell the bike and use the funds to go on a holiday. Anyone want to buy a 00 mod red ? or any other suggestions?
