Cheers mate hey at 49 just as sensible (not lol) as when I was 16 ha ha
That silly sh*t leads to fractured femurs & shattered patellas ya know... :lol::lol:

You're in good company here... Many of our members have been "sacrificed on the altar of physics"... - 6 broken ribs & 2 crushed vertebrae for me, but it's all good - :crazyloco::crazyloco:

Good luck w/the upcoming surgery... :thumbup::thumbup:

Have a good one mate,your going to love this forum!:thumbup:

Your picture needs to be "hosted" somewhere on the internet (like photobucket, etc.). You can also use any pic you find on the internet, as it would be similarly hosted.

When you find the hosted image you want to post, right-click on it & save the URL. This step will vary a bit depending on which browser you are using, but essentially they are similar. Paste the URL in your post sandwiched between tags[img]. These "[img]" or "image" tags tell the server that this is a pic. Otherwise, ir does not know.

You can also get the [img] tags around your URL by clicking on the [IMG]http://kawasakiworld.com/images/editor/insertimage.gif button above your text box when posting & pasting the URL in the space offered & clicking O.K.

It takes a bit of practice, but you'll figure it out!! :thumbup::thumbup:

EDIT - Like this!!

My pleasure mate, we are all kindred spirits here(read:equally mad)when it comes to biking! As you so correctly stated,once it's in your blood...there's no getting out!! I had my latest big off 2 years ago,still feeling the aches and pains,prob wont ever fully recover at age 50 but hey,hope springs eternal! Otherwise there's pain killers and anti-inflamo's.:thumbup::thumbup: Once again best of luck mate,hope to see you post real soon again with the good news that all went splendid,and your good to go!!:king::thumbup:
