    Interesting forum. Recovering from first crash. Doctor said your no spring chicken, what are you doing on a bike. THE HELL WITH DOCTORS. Still going to ride.

    + hah hah

    I got a bit banged up now and then when I came back to riding and felt a bit more adventurous here in CO than my flatlander days in MI. Only really hit it hard once though and my family Dr (also my wife's boss) gave me some gibberish about crashing (shoulder versus ground contact) and my arm was dead/numb for a time. Thing is, he referred me to a ortho Doc and we decided no surgery needed. This other Dr rides too and he said " If you ain't bLEEdin' you ain't ridin' ".

    I take it a bit easier and stay within some margin of risk tolerance but I keep it as fun as ever. It's about 18 years later and I'm 55.
