2019 Yamaha MT 10
I had to park my bike 3 weeks ago for knee replacement surgery. All went pretty well until last week when I had set back from some kind of infection. Fortunately it was not in the bone but probably related to an allergic reaction to adhesives in bandages. Still I was pretty sick by the end of last week. I saw a doctor on Saturday and got some meds and I am feeling way better. In fact my physical therapist was really concerned that the swelling was not going down but as a result of the new meds, I'm close to normal. My leg and foot doesn't look like elephant man any longer and I'm also becoming less pain free and am starting to move around pretty good. I took a long walk through Walmart yesterday to pick up dog treats and a few other things and felt great after. As I am assessing the situation, I am going to get out to the garage and see how it feels to get a leg over the motorcycle and a foot on the peg. I was near suicidal last weekend when we had beautiful weather and saw every bike in Massachusetts out on the road and I was coming home from the doctor's office. I'm probably going to try and ride sooner than I should but it's pretty unlikely that I can be disuaded. I'm pounding out the physical therapy now to get riding. Nice weather predicted for this weekend. One never knows............
