Re: Gary - Had a Weekend Incident

Donna,
I posted to your other thread before reading this one, I am sorry to hear about Gary, I have been a lurker around here for a long time and have always enjoyed your pictures. My heart stopped when I first saw the title to this thread. I was glad to hear things are getting better.
Anyway, I wish the best for the both of you.

Best wishes from a fellow Nevada rider.

3- Save the full pages from some news papers. Put one on a kitchen table or floor. Place your hand directly in the middle and crumple it up into a ball as you keep contact with the surface. Sounds like no big deal right? Just you try it...I'll wager you will not be able to get three pages done (heck, two will be a major chore).

4- Make sure you have ice enough to put on the wrist and in your Maker's Mark after.
1. Check. I almost have 100% flexibility bending the wrist back, as in throttle direction. Bending forward is an ongoing project.

2. Check. My fingers had full movement in the cast so they never got stiff. My right jab seems pretty good, so don't expect to get away with any verbal jabs at Sopiago!

3. Check... and mate! Yeah, finally got a newspaper from the neighbor yesterday and crumpled FOUR (count em!) 4 sheets in a row. What a freakin workout! Could feel a lot of muscles working overtime and while I prolly could have done one more it was tiring enough to stop after winning the wager.

4. I'm a beer man. I'll take my winnings cold in a 12oz. bottle, tyvm.

I have to say, I'm realllly tempted to take the Bandit out for a test spin. But I know my strength isn't there yet. Good flexibility, but I'm sure I couldn't do much to right the bike if it decides to tip toward the right. It's been 10 days since I got the cast off and maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to ride to Sopiago next week.

Throttle open, ok. Throttle closed, still working on it. Planning to ride to Sopiago.

Gary man, enthusiasm is one thing....

Keep crumpling newspaper!

Now that could be fun (been awhile since I've made anyone cry "uncle"). Warning, dirty fighter.
