Slow & Low Roll On Sat 10/8?

Not a group ride - Not a formal event - Not even fast......

Troy, Let's get the Pigs out and leak oil all over the place

Looks to be nice all week and Sat is showing Sunny and 76 - Have not been on the HD since the Ride For Kids in July and would like to get one last roll in before I put the bitch up for the winter

I don't have the same pain shots that Romo probably had. Even with those, I don't see how he played like that.

Considering this is how they're healing, it still hurts and the shoulder blade is catching on one of the offsets periodically. My fear is that I'll end up needing another surgery to correct the shoulder blade interference. Hope not though.

If y'all have a Spring ride, let me know. I'd be down with a slo-roll adventure.

It's healing up, and the pain isn't too bad unless I do something stupid to aggrevate it. I started back at work yesterday, so things are getting better. My riding season isn't over, it's just getting delayed. I'll bundle up and still ride once I'm healed a bit more. Guessing another 4 weeks.

Chills, it goes back a few when Troy and I rode the Pigs up to The Broken Oar, Sideouts Then Freddies - No real meet spot other than Troy's driveway

We will figure something out before hand - It will be all sorts of slow
