Blackie, I appreciate the advice and I agree with you on the core strength it does help. I had surgery in March which helped some. We will see how it goes.[/quote]

Haven't had to go there yet. Your injuries have been serious. Most people don't understand how bad it can be. My last home had a hot tub. I thought it helped so much I am saving money for one at this house. Have you ever tried one?

I have also slowly worked into riding again over the last two years. Standing up more and more trying to get the muscles stronger. Time will tell.

I have tried a hot tub and it does help some. I have had knee surgery X 3 on left knee so I cannot stand like I did when young. I have never been able to get the strength back into it even with a lot of rehab. When you get our age things do not heal like they did years ago. I can ride and go at a good clip. I simply can’t afford to take another fall where the spine is involved much. The vertebra are crushed to the point that I have lost height and have random shooting pains on occasion, chronic pain most of the time. I love to ride and race and do very much hope to get back to it.

List of injuries worthy of mention (over 40+ years of riding);broken rt femur,broken left wrist , all ribs on left side (front and back), broken pelvis, collapsed lungs (both), broken c6 process, hernia repair that tore open again (i crashed too soon after surgery). Ride every weekend...pain levels lowest on Mondays suprisingly.
Arthtitis is biggest impediment to speed now, started 1 week after neck fracture. Doctors say no correlation ?? on 3 drugs for arthritis..
Doesnt matter....I will ride/race until i cant climb on the bike.....
