. . . took nearly two months! Damn crack in my wrist took 7 weeks to heal. I've resumed my riding two weeks ago. Ever since, I am having a blast :grin: (yeah on a 250...but still more fun than me petrol-guzzling Falcon). Out-of-pocket medical cost: $170 Boxes of painkiller: $50 Parts (handle bar, mirrors, tachometer, muffler, bolts & paint): $290 New pair of gloves: $150 Telling dozen times a day how I overcooked a corner and injured myself in my first group ride, fitting muffler and handle bar in a backpack to avoid luggage weight penalty when coming from Korea, repairing bike with one hand, trying to scratch that unreachable itchy spot under the cast with a screw driver, riding again after 7 weeks of one-hand cage driving: Priceless BTW, I'm going for me licence on Sunday to get rid of L plate ASAP. Many cagers seem to interpret L as 'overtake now'.
