    Vas Recovery time?

    Just had 'the boys clipped' on Monday and I'm beginning the recovery process. Anyone have advice? If you've had it done, how long before you were comfortable riding again?

    Had it done on a Friday afternoon....took a week off the bike, then did a 27 mile/4600' ride the following Saturday...no issues.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    I went back to work 5 days after I had mine and started bleeding pretty bad half way through my shift. Took me 4 weeks before I was comfortable on a bike again. But that was over 20 years ago. And I think my doc was a hack.

    But still, give yourself a little time to heal.
