sorry to hear about the injury looks like a great place to ride. My wife is currently healing from two broken wrist when she wrecked her ATV in the Mountains. When you where talking about riding out to get help it brought back memories. gotta ride fast but not so fast that you wreck yourself. Hope she get to feeling better real soon and back on the bike.

TWO broken wrists? Ack. One was bad enough.
The Ant's boo-boo happened last summer. She's all better now thanks to a fantastic surgeon and her fanatical commitment to her rehab.

Now she's getting ready to head out on a 3700 mile sportbike tour over to Devil's Tower and Colorado. And then back to GP on her return. :ride

Wow ... I had forgotten how long ago this ride was!
Ran into someone the other day and they asked if "The Flying Ant" had given up on riding after the big crash.

Nope. :^)

Here she is visiting the scene of crime the following year:

And bopping around at Moab last year.

So yah, Susan is still riding. :D
