Well done Craig, good to see you up and about again.
"What a feeling being out on the bike again!" Amen! It's good to see you're recovering well. dd
How's the recovery progressing ??
I am doing ok , we are on holidays at the moment with dodgy internet, on the banks of Loch Fyne
A storm blowing outside :o :o
Been taking things real easy and maybe at 80 % now
Cracking news Craig. Enjoy the break and look forward to some more riding miles before the ice sets in.
See you on the road soon.
Well another weekend goes by and I did manage to get out on the bike for a couple of hours .
Did about 60 miles out to Banchory and drive around Aberdeen city.
Not a huge trip but it felt good getting out on the bike with only a little discomfort.
Did see doctor last week and everything seems fine apart from pain after overdoing things , lifting etc.
He recommended light training so more riding the bike then ?
I can now see that I will not be fully recovered until at least 6months (consultant say)
Its now 13.5 weeks
So small trips and exercise hopefully be all ready for next spring, weekend camping etc
Onwards and upwards
Small steps Craig, small steps.
Or in this case, small rides ;D
Owts better than nowt, so just keep to the slow but steady pace and you'll be racking up the miles in good time.
See you soon,
Looks like Saturday is gonna be proper good weather-wise. Coinicdentally, no one to check in, so I think one last big run on the GS with Mrs 3D before the tyres for the big trip go on and I change oils and filter. Torridon and Shieldaig for lunch looks favourite, and then possibly back to town via the A87 and Loch Ness. Yip yip!
Oh I like it when a plan works. ;D
All our guests in for brekkie at eight sharp, so we got cleared up pretty quick. Got a call from the bike movers (The Bike Bus in Aberdeen, highly recommended) saying they were 30 minutes out with my new-to-me Falco, bike arrives- it's gorgeous and in amazing condition considering it's age- throw it in the garage and then off to Nanny's in Shieldaig for a spot of lunch.
Looking down towards Kinlochewe and Loch Maree...
Managed to get a seat outside, and no sodding effin' campervans blocking the view over the bay. Sunny sunny sunny.
Returned to town via Loch Carron and the A87 Skye road - quick stop off to see Little Bro in Drum and then home for a quick garage rearrangement and a pint or two of Timothy Taylors. Perfect.
