Finally got to ride my bike!
on: July 24, 2020, 07:33:41 AM
I finally got the all clear from my Surgeon to ride a bike again! I had an emergency double heart bypass 12 weeks ago and yesterday I finally got to ride the bike, and I love it.
I bought the bike online from Manchester Honda about a month ago so have had plenty of time to read this forum and add some extras.

Great news! 

A pal of mine had bypass surgery just before lockdown, and has been isolating all these weeks too.... unfortunately he's not a biker, so all he has to look forward to is a nice walk!!   :001:

Great stuff, if you don't mind me asking, whose hugger have you got fitted. Thanks.

 Good to see you back on the road, the bike looks a beast with that end can.
 take care.

Hi Stokie, it is a Powerbronze hugger. There is a big bracket that fits around the swinging arm which was silver and looked awful, so I have painted it matt black. It is hardly noticeable now.

Thanks for that and the heads up on the bracket.   :763:

Glad to see your out on your bike at last. Where is that track on the photo? area looks like it may be the peak district.

I'm always on the look out for easyish tracks to ride  :001:

Cheers, Al  :821:
