Betty & I

Well, I started riding my own bike this year. I took the MSF class and bought my Sporster 883 in Feb. I have not put on as many miles as I would have liked to, summer just flew by! But I did put 2,000 miles on her. I would be expecting to put in some more beautiful miles in Sept & Oct, as things are cooling down and it is really the primo time of year. But unfortunatley I have to have surgery (hysterectomy) on the 28th of this month. When the Doc and I decided on this course of treatment, I said I wouldn't do it till Nov so I could ride, but the surgery room availability is dictating a different song, plus I just want to get it over with. 6-8 weeks recovery so there goes my fall. But I will be ready to jump back in the saddle in the spring! Yahoo!

No, I am in the Phx area, Mesa actually. Heck it's hard to repo a bike that I only paid a grand for lol.

And yeah we have a monsoon season here, this year has been very mild, usually it starts raining at least a little each day in July and goes until September, this year we have only had maybe 4 really rainy days.

I don't like the rain for sure, and when it rains heavy I will find an underpass or parking lot to wait it out. Nice thing is like last week one night it started pouring around 7 and by 8 it was done, by 8:30 the streets were already dried up.

Anyway good luck and ride safe no matter when you get back on the sled.

Yes, it could always be worse! I will recover and Yes, my health is the most important thing.

I love riding, but I'm chicken in the rain! I guess I need to learn to conquer riding i different weather conditions to really learn to be safe...Heck, I didn't know AZ got cold and rainy! LOL, i know there are some areas that even get snow. Are you in the Prescott area? I would love to visit there, I have heard it is beautiful.
Quicklimegirl-I hope all is in tip top shape soon.

Sue-Hang in there girl! The economy has got to get better soon! And yes at least they didn't reposess your bike :-)

It Could be Worse...
by: Quicklimegirl

My riding season got cut short at the end of May...I had developed a severe case of basel arthritis on my R thumb in the last 4+ years and finally the pain was too much to ride. I'd just finished rebuilding one of my vintage bikes (I have 1 modern bike and 6 running vintage bikes) and only had a chance to break it in 40 miles. I had total reconstructive surgery including trapezium removal and tendon grafts on July 15th and started Physical Therapy five days after my cast and pin removal August 20th. If I'm lucky I may be physically able to ride by the middle of October or so...just in time for the cold, rainy season :(

Good luck on your surgery...jump right back into it when you're feeling up to it!

Girl that sucks but your health is far more important. Heck in Arizona, (Phx metro area) I ride year round even in the rain. It's a bit chilly lol - downright cold at times but not much choice with having no car thanks to good old repo man and no job for a year now. But hey I got my bike, and that's all that I need right? :)

Heal up fast so you can get back on Betty.
