Heal fast and take care.

Thank you so much for the offer, but I'd like my bike here, fixed whatever needs fixing, and ready to ride when I'm ready to ride.

Bummer Dude! Take care of yourself.

Doctor I need to learn how to relax faster.

If you want to ride tomorrow, ride quietly today.
Quiet is cool, silent is sexy.

Rats! I didn't notice this thread until today. Parking lot mishaps are so embarrassing. I hope your wife takes it easy on you. Heal quickly -- I hope we can meet up again at fall BRR.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

Just came back from the orthopedist. Excellent news. Don't have to do nothing! No surgery, no cast, nothing! Keep wearing the solid sole non-bending slipper they gave me in California, take it easy, it will heal, but can do anything I can!

That is wonderful news! You are still an inspiration for the rest of us.

Try wearing a riding boot on the other foot to balance the orthopedic slipper on your broken foot.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

Paul, there were 3 jr. old farts at the same table last night. We all wished you could have been with us!

Heal fast.
