Cool storm in the shop

went for a little 150 mile ride this am, then dropped the new 12 storm off for 500 mile service, performance air filter, shortty tors, tune, and a set of jim hendersons' 1" black risers he made up for me. told them no rush since i have to go into the hospital tuesday for a heart cath. and doctor most likely will not let me ride for a couple of weeks. man is it going to be a long wait lol...ya'll ride safe.......

Hope you do well Sparky - been there and done that right there at Methodist DeBakey, great folks.
I know the feeling waiting to complete a medical "time out". Had a total right shoulder replacement two weeks ago and it looks like at least another four before I can think of cranking the bike up. Got her on a trickle charger and I peek under the sheet she's draped in every day - still there!
Hope you're up and riding soon.

Great to hear your back and things went well!
Take it easy on your first few rides and enjoy yourself!
