I now HATE my Victory

But not for the reasons you think...

I broke my arm in 2, possibly 3 places and am told no riding (among other things) for 8-12 weeks.

Here's my X-Ray.

What did she do? Stupid bike! I'll take that turd off your hands.

On a serious note, wishing you a speedy recovery.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Ouch! Why do you hate her though? Were you walking down the stairs and she caught your eye, as she was patiently awaiting your arrival?

What does the doc say? Look at the bright side - you've injured yourself in the off-season, so come spring hopefully you'll be ready to ride again.

It was a nice crisp 50 degrees here with intermittent rain. I rode 170 miles and enjoyed everyone of them. When I ride tomorrow, I'll think about you.

If you'd like I'll come down and ride it around for you. You know, just to keep the oil and tires warm.

You don't have to thank me. It's the kind of guy I am.

(Get well soon! I hope you have a pain free rehab!)

Still young?

Hopefully you're still fairly young. It takes longer to heal up them bones as you get older. When you get older you start feeling those broken bones from years past,bummer. Take care of yourself and do not push it to much healing up. I got some nice bumps from broken bones past. Heal up fast and good luck. Now you got time to think of all those mods you want to make to your bike.
