Shoddy suspension?

Sunday, Oct 21

Took the rear shock off the DRZ yesterday, packed it up to send to get serviced/inspected and repaired if necessary.  When I was cleaning up the bike and checking it over for damage, it dawned on me that the rear shock may not be working properly and that may have contributed to my crash.  Doh!!  We'll see.  The shop will test it before they do anything to see if anything is wrong with it.  

Feeling better today.  I worked outside all day - mowing, prepping the rv for an upcoming trip.  Stuff like that. I'm really tired now and I hope I don't pay for it tomorrow.  I tend to have a really good day, then a bad day.  Every other day has been the trend.  I'm hoping to stretch that out a bit and have a couple of good days before I have a bad one.  This healing shit is S-L-O-W!!!  

That's it for now.  Time for bed.

The DRZ is home!!!

Oct 8, 2012

Got the DRZ home!!  Yay!!  Woohoo!!  Drove up to get it.  4210 miles in 3.5 days.  Holy cow.  I didn't do it alone, thank goodness!  Hurricane helped me.  He did all the night driving.  It would have taken me FOREVER if I had done it myself.  And it was a much more fun trip with him along. 

Update on my collarbone:  It's not healing.  Not good.  Doc says let's wait for the 3 month mark when we can try some non-invasive proceedures.  They have a 85% success rate.  If that doesn't work, then he'll have to go in and fix it surgically.  That would suck. 

That's it for now.  I still have to wrap this up.  I know, I know...  it takes energy to think and I don't have it right now.  I'll get there.
