Commuting to Work on a Motorcycle: Again

On Monday, two and a half weeks after having my hardware removed from my lower left tibia I started riding my motorcycle to work again.

It was a little anticlimactic, and honestly on Monday, a little less than I hoped it would be. I was expecting sunshine and tears of joy, instead I just got to work safely and parked much closer than I would have if I drove the car.

Tuesday was when the overwhelming sense of joy I typically have when riding a motorcycle hit me. The feeling of freedom, and wonder I often get when on two wheels. In hindsight I suspect that I was just too nervous on Monday to enjoy it, plus it was a bit chilly which can often be a dampener on riding.

The leg seems to be holding up pretty well, there is still pain, but I’m trying to manage that and now worry about it too much. It still is only three weeks ago that I was sliced open and had a lot of metal taken out of my leg.

Yes that is my cane hanging from my handle bars.

The little band-aid at the end is from my two year old niece, she thought I needed one more for my boo boo. The steri strips are slowly falling off. There is definitely going to be a big scar there when I’m done.





About MotoCynic

I started riding motorcycles in 2006, and there is no going back. I've ridden more than 100,000 miles, most of it on a Ducati Monster, and despite setbacks and murderous BMW's I'm loving every mile.
