my left foot/ankle is all but completely pain free so I can now ride again.

That's the best news in this thread so far!

Glad to hear it Marc.

Beginning to think "not for Bad Luck -- you would have No Luck at all".  :banghead

HOPE stuff gets better.  :)

Paul its been that kind of year but like Rick said at least I can still ride.It will get better and i will get through it.I'm ok and dealing with it although I don't think i'll ever get a Thursday to ride off again which is a major bummer.

Dissection complete suspicions confirmed.Still unable to go farther for now.I did get the nomad out and give it a bath and get the tire pressure up so its ready to ride and a huge bonus my left foot/ankle is all but completely pain free so I can now ride again.

I found this on ebay.  Would it fix what you found during the autopsy?

Buddy's --- you gonna mess around and loose that new figure.  :banghead

What you think about a trip to Pump Power Visitor Center, also Ride Mission Ridge Civil War Site & Lookout Mtn (all around Chattanooga, TN)?

Could do a Friday (pick a predicted good weather day). 

Maybe, FRI 16 as Wisconsin folks in town and he might go also.
