Just thought I'd say "Hi".

After faaaaaaar too long a time I'm back on my bike, but only on the road so far.

After being checked over by my congenital cardiologist and also my cardiac surgeon all I could think
of asking the both of them was "Can I still ride the dirt?".

Both of them assured me that none of the parts that were installed, in me, would cause any
concerns, nor be in any great danger should I inadvertently wreck, endo, biff or dab... not that I
ever do <grin>.

Since last I posted I've lost over a 100 pounds, it's been a while. It does make a difference on the
road, now it's time to see what the changes in me are like while riding the dirt...

So far so good. Not a bad motto for riding or for life. See you folks around.

Good ridin' to ya!

Wow, glad to hear you're OK! I've been away myself on a little sick leave and didn't realize what
had happened to you. You're on the road to what sounds like an amazing recovery. A 100 pounds,
that's incredible! I bet you enjoy your bike even more now, I sure did.

That's great Rog, welcome back! Keep up the good work. Just remember all the disparaging comments we
make about roadie scum are just about all the other roadies!

Curious, this entire thread just showed up. one minute it does not exist, the next, it's a whole
thread of replies.

Sometimes i almost think news servers have a personality.

But anyway, it's good to hear from you. I'd have to agree with some others that mentioned it, AM-B
just seems to be lacking something with you gone.

Jon:

He's got a ways to go to catch you. Hell, *I* have a ways to go...

Roger:

Been away myself, what a long strange trip it's been. Missed what was up with you, glad everything
seems to be going OK. On the bright side, I've found that it's easier to see what's important after
life throws you a curve or too.

Take it easy,

Chris
