Sat on the 250 today. I'm about 3 inches(flexing my leg) away from being able to ride. The husky is getting a new engine and pulled apart so I'm not able to sit on her.

First day of work was yesterday. It sucked. More of my feet hurting because I wasn't used to standing that long. At least I know that will get better with time.

Also picked up my bike today and rode it home(~2 miles) and holy crap I realized I miss riding.... Also realized(again) how crappy my Bilt helmet was in that 2 miles.

Another step along the path.... Congratulations

(and yes, they are pretty sucky helmets, but, if it adequately protected you, it's OK)

Just wanted to update. Skin all healed up, scars look awesome! Some pain still in the right knee, my hand, and shoulder but doctor said the surgery might cause more problems and because it's not bad yet just wait till it gets worse.

Always wear gear. Never know when you will meet the road.

Injuries about 2 weeks after
Knees now
Hand now
Cool clavicle facture

And lastly my ugly mug protected because of my helmet

Glad you're on the mend. One thing they don't tell you is that between the scarring and surgery you could start noticing that some nerves don't work the way they used to. I had leg surgery from a lowside a couple of years ago and I've been losing feeling and experiencing numbness below the knee since about a month after I was walking again. Nothing incapacitating, but it's definitely noticeable.

argan oil, believe it or not, is good for scars..

full of nutrients.. best cold pressed as for skin
[hair and nails] in cosmetic use..

think of them as battle scars
or reminders that you are
a survivor...

Yeah around the scars their either hyper sensitive or numb so far nothing has extended past the scars but the doctor did mention if I ever grt surgery that might be a outcome.

I've been using vitamin E lotion and it has been helping a little I'll have to try the argan oil. I don't care much about the cosmic looks but the area doesn't sweat or produce oils so I have to put lotion on them twice a day.

im not interested in the cosmetic aspect either..
this is not a miracle cure, but does have actual
beneficial effects on minor [skin cancer removal etc]
persistent scars, even in the 3-4mths ive been using it..

ive had many small scars from 'burning off' skin cancers
on my forehead [for eg] which have had no real changes
from use of various sun screens [with moisturiser etc]
over many years.. but with argan oil applied once a day
[if that] these persistent scars are gradually 'fading away'
ie, they were obvious to the touch, and always itchy,
yet today i need to find them with my fingertips..

there is no doubt that these areas ive been using it on
have responded, over time, by what i imagine to be
a natural healing process,, which is assisted by
certain nutrients, as found in cold pressed
organic argan oil..

your scars are well beyond any of my various surgical etc
scars, but the factor seems to be natural healing around them,
thus into them.. not just making them feel softer etc..

anyay, it would be remiss to not mention this here..
my daughter [in germany] gave me a 20ml bottle of Swisse
brand Argan Face Oil.. its just running out now [4ths +]
seems there are lots of beauty products with argan oil
or combinations of argan and outer oils [teatree etc]
but pure cold pressed organic argan oil is probably
the go for general skin health, thus healing..

i reckon the gentle massaging application of it
would also be helpful for circulation etc
around the scar edges and area..

probably worth test use on a specific
small area before general use,
just in case of sensitivity etc..

Working at Ross I get to see a wide range of products for just about everything. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for some lotion or oils with it in it. Hey it can't hurt it unless it makes it more sensitive. Thanks for the tip!
